Items which should not routinely be prescribed in primary care: an update and a consultation on further guidance for CCGs

NHS England continues to partner with NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) CCGs in ensuring they can use their prescribing resources effectively and deliver best patient outcomes from the medicines their local population uses

A national public consultation has been launched on proposals to update and review commissioning guidance (consultation closes 28 Feb 2019). In the majority of cases there are other more effective, safer and/or cheaper alternatives available to the items NHS England is recommending should not be routinely prescribed in primary care. 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.
