Giving you a voice on health and social care

Other ways to have your say

As well as telling Healthwatch about your views and experiences of health and social care, there are lots of other ways to have your say on services in Bradford district and nationally. If you sign up to our newsletter we'll keep you informed about these opportunities.

Over-the-Counter Medicines Public Consultation

NHS England, which is responsible for the NHS, is proposing changes to how a number of medicines are presecribed and recently launched a consultation to find out what the public think. They believe the changes could save the NHS £136 million a year by significantly reducing prescribed medicines where:

  • There's little evidence they work well
  • People will get better without treatment
  • Medical advice isn't normally needed and people can buy treatment over the counter

We spoke to local people and made a formal submission to the consultation based on what you told us

The consultation is now closed but we will keep you up-to-date with developments as they happen.
