Consultation and CCG guidance on prescribing in primary care

A national public consultation has been launched on proposals to update and review commissioning guidance about items that should not be routinely prescribed in primary care.

In the majority of cases there are other more effective, safer and/or cheaper alternatives available. CCGs are asked to engage with their local communities on these proposals where they have not already taken action in this area.
