Proposed Changes to NHS Prescriptions

NHS Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group is seeking views on proposed changes to what is available on prescription in Bromley. The CCG is proposing to no longer support routine prescribing of health supplements and self-care medications for short term minor illnesses and injuries that will get better over time. The medicines covered in this proposal can be purchased from a pharmacy or a supermarket. NHS England recently announced that efforts need to be made to get better value for money in the NHS and eliminate waste.  To have your say on these proposals read the proposal leaflet on the CCG website here  and complete the online survey here The CCG has produced an easy read version for people with learning disabilities which you can access here
