NHS England consultation on reducing prescribing of over-the-counter medicines

NHS England has opened the consultation ‘Conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care: A Consultation on guidance for CCGs’. The objective is to reduce prescribing of commonly available over-the-counter medicines for 33 minor, short-term health conditions that are considered self-limiting or that lends itself to self-care.

The consultation will run from 20 December 2017 – 14 March 2018 and is intended to produce a consistent, national framework for CCG’s to follow.
