***** Self Care *****
The West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) developed proposals, which have now been agreed by the CCG Board in September, which asks GPs to stop prescribing medicines for minor conditions. GPs are instead asked to advise patients to see their pharmacist in the first instance for advice on minor conditions that they feel could be treated quickly by an over the counter medicine.
The CCG has undertaken extensive engagement with health professionals and surveyed patients to understand the impact of asking patients to purchase remedies for the management of short term minor illnesses, vitamin D supplements and some type of specialised infant formula. The majority of people are broadly supportive of the proposal and most patients confirmed that they were already doing this.
