Current consultations - have your say

Local and national health and social care organisations often want to know what you think about changes they want to introduce.

This page highlights some of the issues that these organisations are currently asking about that could affect people who use health and social care services.

NHS England Consultations and Surveys

NHS England has a number of open national consultations and surveys - follow the link below.

NHS England consultations

Current consultations include:

Items which should not be routinely prescribed in primary care: A Consultation on guidance for CCGs - closes 21 October 2017

Last year 1.1 billion prescription items were dispensed in primary care at a cost of £9.2billion*. This growing cost coupled with finite resources means it is important that the NHS achieves the greatest value from the money that it spends. We know that across England there is significant variation in what is being prescribed and to whom. Often patients are receiving medicines which have been proven to be ineffective or in some cases dangerous, and/or for which there are other more effective, safer and/or cheaper alternatives.

The current consultation aims to provide you with information about the proposed national guidance and to seek your views about the proposals.
