Reclassification Guide

We’ve made this resource available to help all pharmacists returning to frontline patient facing roles during the COVID-19 pandemic.

More medicines are being reclassified from Prescription-Only Medicines (POMs) to Pharmacy (P) medicines. 

Other medicines, such as oral lidocaine-containing products for teething in children, have been reclassified from General Sale List (GSL) medicines to Pharmacy (P) medicines. 

We've produced guidance to support you when selling or supplying these medicines.
