NHS England (NHSE) published detailed plans in July 2017 to reduce prescriptions for ineffective, over-priced and low value treatments. Helping to trim hundreds of millions from the nation’s rapidly growing drugs bill will create headroom to reinvest all savings in newer and more effective NHS medicines and treatments. The consultation document can be found online.

During the consultation period NHSE will be hosting face to face events and webinars (online meetings). For further details and to register for an event, visit the website.

Recommendations from this consultation will be made for Dorset CCG to consider and potentially implement. To have your say, fill in the online web form or email england.medicines@nhs.net by the 21 October 2017.

Please note that NHS England and NHS Clinical Commissioners will not be able to respond to every response individually.
