NHS consultation: Items prescribed in primary care

NHS consultation: Items prescribed in primary care

Dear member,

City & Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Healthwatch Hackney are keen to hear from Hackney and City residents about how a national medicines review may affect them, their families and those they care for.

NHS England is proposing 18 products should not be routinely prescribed in primary care. The products include herbal treatments, travel vaccines, homeopathy, gluten free foods, antidepressants, and painkillers. The consultation is also looking at whether some over-the-counter products should be prescribed by GPs for conditions like diarrhoea, head lice, insect bites, scabies, sore throat and teething. More information about the consultation is available in this information sheet.

A local patient discussion with commissioners is being organised by NHS Community Voice on: Tuesday Oct 3 2017, 10.30am-12.30pm

If you would like to attend, please email info@healthwatchhackney.co.uk or call 0207 923 8367. Venue details will be given to those who register. If you are unable to attend but would like to have your say please also contact us.

People can submit their views as part of the national consultation through this online survey until 21 October 2017.

Kind regards,
Healthwatch Hackney
