Cost-effective prescribing

A key Departmental objective is the efficient management of the primary care drugs bill to secure the most effective treatment for patients and deliver value for money.   The Department's cost effective prescribing policies aim to free up NHS resources which can then be used to improve patient care and to treat more patients. This section provides links to some of the Department's cost effective prescribing documents.
