We would like to update you and seek your feedback on current NHS England national
guidance and consultations on medicines. We would ask that all PPGs have a
say in the consultation and respond.

NHS England have published a new consultation proposing further national
guidance for CCGs on medicines which should not routinely be prescribed in

The items considered for inclusion were:

  • more expensive when compared to other medicines that work as well;
  • medicines that the NHS should not spend money on because they do not treat serious illnesses.
