Prescribing Changes

As of the 18th September there is now a restriction placed on access to certain medicines, treatments, products and food items on prescription.

These changes follow a decision made by the three Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Groups in July this year where they agreed to no longer support a number of different items, specifically:

  • To restrict the prescription of treatments and medicines for short-term, minor conditions
  • To stop the prescription of all gluten-free foods
  • To stop the prescription of soya milks, thickened infant formula, formula for lactose intolerance and all infant formula available as ready to use liquid
  • To restrict the prescription of oral nutritional supplements.

Those patients affected by the new commissioning polices will now be advised to purchase required products from a pharmacy, supermarket, health food store or online.

Reduce Medicine Waste

Did you know that £300 million of NHS taxpayers’ money is spent every year on unused medicines that are thrown away? Over £150 million can be saved by preventing medicines waste. That could pay for 53 million extra prescriptions of medicines to help prevent heart attack and strokes.

Please download the attached leaflets for information on how we can help to reduce Medicine Waste....
