NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) and NHS England have developed a proposal to improve patient care by no longer routinely prescribing 18 medicines which are inappropriate

The objective is to produce commissioning guidance to support clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in their decision-making, to address unwarranted variation, and to provide clear national advice to make local prescribing practices more effective. Any savings from implementing the proposals will be reinvested in improving patient care. The consultation is open from 21 July to 21 October 2017. Find out more here.
