I have a Grohe Aquatower 3000 installed 12 years ago. The overhead head has started a steady continuous drip and, as something with no talent for DIY let alone plumbing matters, I'm very nervous about tinkering with it! My instinct is a washer but maybe it's a bit more technical, maybe a new cartridge of some sort. The shower works perfectly apart from that. Any thoughts or advice?

I don't know anything about that shower, but usually a shower valve will need a complete cartridge, but your shower has separate parts. One part that can cause the drip is the water inlet part. This site shows it and other parts on exploded drawing, but £99 for a ceramic spindle is crazy! And it looks just like a standard tap ceramic works.
You could also try Shower Doctor & email saying your exact problem.

I am quite certain it's the washer in the cartridge ( needs to be replaced ).

I'm not sure if my replies are being directed to the person I mean to so thanks for the responses. Basically, the cartridge has had it and has been replaced. Excellent service from National Shower Spares.
