The supply shortage of topical corticosteroids was discussed by BAD Officers and the Executive Committee; the consensus was that the Clinical Standards Unit and Therapy & Guidelines subcommittee produce a guidance sheet on the wider range of products available on the market for the benefit of dermatologists, GPs and nurse prescribers who may be having difficulties in identifying and sourcing alternative products or are unfamiliar with certain alternatives in terms of their potency.
