Consultation to add eight further items to those which should not be routinely prescribedConsultation to add eight further items to those which should not be routinely prescribed

NHS England is consulting on plans to update commissioning guidance launched in November 2017, which lists medicines which should no longer be prescribed by GPs and purchased OTC instead.

The new consultation concerns eight more products. NHS England say '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.'

The consultation runs until 28 February 2019. There are also public consultation events - details here.
