Public consultation events on items which should not be routinely prescribed in primary care

19/02/2019

NHS England and NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) are working together to support clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in ensuring that they can use their prescribing resources effectively and deliver best patient outcomes from the medicines that their local population uses. A national public consultation has been launched on proposals to update and review commissioning guidance on eight more products. They argue that: "In the majority of cases there are other more effective, safer and/or cheaper alternatives available to the items that NHS England is recommending should not be routinely prescribed in primary care".

 

You can read more about the proposals on the NHS England website. The consultation closes on 28 February 2019.
