Consultation on conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care

NHS England has partnered with NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) to support CCGs in ensuring 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 draft commissioning guidance for conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care. This closes on 14 March 2018. CCGs are asked to engage with their local communities on these proposals where they have not already taken action in this area, and share views with the national consultation.

There will also be more details in the upcoming NHSCC Focus on: managing prescribeable items of low priority for NHS funding.
