Changes to Prescriptions
In keeping with financial pressures on the NHS, North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group requires that this practice makes a significant reduction in its prescribing costs.
In line with other local practices you may therefore notice some changes in your prescriptions:
- The practice may no longer prescribe medication which can be bought over the counter from any pharmacy. This could include pain killing medication, anti-inflammatory medication, laxatives, some skin products, wax softeners and hay fever preparations.
- There may be changes in the medicines we do prescribe, for less costly alternatives.
We hope that you will understand and accept theses necessary changes. the pressure on costs must be taken seriously so that the NHS can continue to provide necessary health care.
