Better Health Starts at Home - CLOSED

This public consultation on proposed changes to prescriptions and medicines begins Monday, 26 June 2017 and closes on Friday, 1 September

“Better health starts at home” sets out proposals to make changes to the prescribing policy in Derbyshire. This would see less NHS money being spent on products for short-term, minor illnesses where there is insufficient evidence of benefit or cost effectiveness and which are available to buy over-the-counter. The result would see more NHS money being available to invest in the diagnosis and treatment of serious medical conditions.

The consultation document gives you lots more information about this important issue and what the proposed changes could mean for you. It is available to view online, at GP surgeries, pharmacies and other community venues in Derbyshire.

The consultation feedback form is available to complete on SurveyMonkey at: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/betterhealthderbys
