Help West Leicestershire CCG understand the effect of potential changes to the prescribing of medicines

West Leicestershire CCG, the organisation which plans and pays for health services on behalf of residents in this area are currently undertaking a review of medicines and supplements which are available to buy cheaply over the counter and are currently also available on prescription.  The CCG want to understand how people would be affected if they had to buy certain products directly from supermarkets or pharmacies, instead of requesting a prescription for them.  This means we can make the best use of NHS resources and ensure we are spending our money wisely.  The products and medicines currently under consideration include those also available over the counter to treat minor ailments, Vitamin D supplements and some types of infant formula. You can find the survey regarding medicines for minor ailments and Vitamin D here:- https://tinyurl.com/wlccg-counter-medicines-survey 

The survey regarding infant formula can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/wlccg-infant-formula-survey  You can find further information about the surveys here:- http://www.westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk/medicine 

All Surveys close on August 4th 2017.

Your Named Registered Accountable GP

In Accordance with the current government and our NHS Contract, all patients on our list have been allocated a named accountable GP.  This GP is responsible for the co-ordination of all appropriate services that relate to your care.  You are unlikely to see any notable change in the way care is delivered to you by our practice, this process is simply a formalisation of our current process.   You are however, able to book an appointment with any of the GPs in the practice.

If you do not know who your GP is, please ask at your next visit.

The CQC recently inspected the practice.  To see the full report please go to:-
