Consultation on commissioning guidance for items which should not routinely be prescribed in primary care

Background Information:
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 consultation was launched in July 2017 on products which could be considered low priority for funding by the NHS (which closes 21 October 2017). 

Healthwatch England National Director: Imelda Redmond talks about the importance of everyone having their say on what should be available on prescription.
