NHS England Prescription Consultation

Home / News / News from Bristol East / NHS England Prescription Consultation

27 February 2018
NHS England is currently consulting on the provision of prescriptions for over-the-counter medicines for short-term health conditions, such as nappy rash, conjunctivitis and sore throats. These proposals, if they go ahead, would mean that prescriptions for some minor ailments would no longer be prescribed by GPs, but would need to be purchased by patients from pharmacies and other outlets such as supermarkets.

These proposal are designed to save the NHS money, but there is a concern that they may be detrimental to those on low incomes who are currently entitled to free prescriptions.

You can find out more about the proposals and submit your views via the link below. The consultation closes on 14th March 2018.
