Notes:

Terms used in the Templates

NSAI: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, usually abbreviated to NSAIDs or NAIDs , are drugs with analgesic, antipyretic and, in higher doses, anti-inflammatory effects - they reduce pain, fever and inflammation. The most prominent examples are aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen partly because they are available over-the-counter in many areas.

OTC: Over the counter. Drugs that can be bought legally in pharmacies, chemists etc. without prescription.

TENS: Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation uses small electrical signals to block pain. The effects are usually short-term, but since portable units can be used in place of medications, it's become a mainstay of chronic pain treatment.

RTA: Road Traffic Accident.

GP: General Practitioner.
