Abstract

The Board of NHS England has launched a public consultation, which will result in statutory guidance to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), aimed at restricting the prescribing of treatments and remedies that are judged to be of ‘low clinical value’.

National Voices, the coalition of health and care charities, has a number of concerns about the nature of this consultation process. These are set out in a position statement on 'low value' prescriptions.
