No prescription needed for contraceptive pill

Sky News published this video item, entitled “No prescription needed for contraceptive pill” – below is their description.

For the first time in England, contraceptive pills are now available to purchase without a prescription in pharmacies.

Purchasers will need to have a consultation with pharmacists before being sold two types of progesterone-only, so-called ‘mini pills’ – but will not require a prescription from their GP.
