Name: Medicines Management Consultation
We are consulting on how we spend our healthcare funds in order to get the greatest benefit for patients. We think the money spent on items that are readily available over the counter might be better spent on treatments, staff, and essential services that patients cannot get in any other way
This consultation is asking for your views on the four Lincolnshire CCGs’ proposals to restrict the prescribing of:
• over the counter/minor ailment medicines used for short-term, self-limiting conditions,
• gluten-free products,
• baby milk (including specialist infant formula) and
• oral nutritional supplements.
However, these medicines and products will still be available for conditions where clinical need can only be met by prescriptions and no decision will be made until we have everyone’s views at the end of the consultation.
