Your local NHS is consulting on some proposed changes to prescriptions in Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Houslow, Kensington & Chelsea, and Wesminster.
They want to hear your views, and you have until the 30th June to let them know!
What are the proposals?
- GPs will ask patients if they are willing to buy certain medicines or products that can be bought without a prescription
- GPs will not routinely prescribe medicines and products, which can be bought without a prescription
- To reduce waste they will ask patients to order their own repeat prescriptions
To find out more about the proposals and what it might mean for you, you can read their ‘Choosing Wisely’ leaflet by downloading it here: Choosing Wisely Leaflet
To give feedback and for more information on the proposed changes go here: Choosing Wisely
Remember, you only have until the 30th June, so make sure to share your views by then.
