Support for prescribers

Did you know?

NHS England has commissioned the Specialist Pharmacy Service to provide prescribers with all the support they need to:

  • Stop prescribing medicines which are not clinically-effective or cost-effective
  • Provide clear information to patients to help them make meaningful choices and decisions about their treatment
  • Help people to get the benefits they want from their prescribed medicines
  • Encourage people to ‘self-care’ and choose not to take a medicine if they don’t really need one
  • Take positive action to reduce waste so we stop throwing away so many medicines
