NHS England to issue new guidance on low value prescription items

28/03/2017

NHS England have announced today that they will be leading a review of low value prescription items from April 2017 and introducing new guidance for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), with a view to substantially saving NHS expenditure in this area. It follows extensive work by NHS Clinical Commissioners which identified significant areas where potential savings can be made, up to potentially £400m per year.

 In developing the guidance, the views of  patient groups, clinicians, commissioners and providers across the NHS will be sought.
