From Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
Share your views on the latest consultation which proposes changes to the way medicine is prescribed by GPs in Sandwell and West Birmingham. The consultation runs from the 23rd March – 15th June 2017.
Proposals include changing the way GPs are asked to prescribe certain medicines for short-term, minor conditions or where there is no clear health benefit for patients. For example, for medicines to treat minor conditions like coughs and sore throats, you do not always need to visit your GP as these can be bought over the counter from your local community pharmacist.
