NHS England Consultation – Medication prescribed in Primary Care
NHS England are currently running a consultation taking place until 21 October 2017 on proposals around medication prescribed in primary care
St Helens CCG are promoting this consultation to ensure the population have the opportunity to have their say on the proposed changes. This consultation is focusing on 18 medicines which are either:
Items of low clinical effectiveness or there are significant safety concerns;
Items which are clinically effective but where more cost-effective products are available
Items which are clinically effective but, due to the nature of the product, are deemed a low priority for NHS funding
NHS England and NHS Clinical Commissioners are also seeking people’s views on whether a wider list of 3,200 products that are available over-the-counter, without prescription, may be considered appropriate for future restriction. At this stage, St Helens CCG are seeking views generally on this area, for further work and consideration by the clinical working group.
St Helens residents can find out more and get involved:
