Reception: Hayfever

Please remember there is no cure for hayfever, and you cannot prevent it.  Before considering medication, please look at these tips for things you can do to reduce your symptoms.

Most medications for hayfever (eye drops, anti-histamines, nose sprays) are available over-the-counter at a lower price than the prescription charge so please consider if you can seek help from your local pharmacist first.

This form is for NON-emergency queries. Please note that some allergic reactions can be life-threatening. If you have any lip or tongue swelling, difficulty breathing or noisy breathing then you must call 999 for urgent medical assistance. If submitted before 16:00 on a working day your query will be responded to within 1 working day. Please do not contact reception prior to this deadline as they will be unable to give you an update. All hayfever queries are managed initially with this triage form. If you have any technical issues completing this form reception will assist you in completing the form. If you feel your query is urgent call 111 for advice. If you are NOT a registered patient then your form will be discarded. This service is only for patients registered at the surgery aged 16 and over; and for parents or legal guardians of children. Forms must be completed in the UK due to GDPR regulations.
