02-10-17: Important update on changes to prescribing policy in Lambeth!
- As of 2nd October 2017 Lambeth CCG no longer supports the routine prescribing of medications for acute (short-term) illnesses, minor and/or self-limiting conditions; and health supplements available over the counter.
This is to encourage patients to self care, ease pressure on NHS services and free up clinician time for people who have more complex healthcare needs.
Please visit CCG website for more information about self-care, where you can find very useful fact-sheets about managing common conditions like Children's fever, Headaches and Lower Back Pain just to mention few!
Please follow this link to read the Position Statement issued by CCG Lambeth.
- Malaria prevention medicines and the following travel vaccinations: hepatitis B (monovalent vaccine and combination vaccine with hepatitis A), meningitis ACWY135, yellow fever, Japanese B encephalitis, tick-borne encephalitis and rabies vaccine will no longer be prescribed on the NHS.
Here you can read the Position Statement.
As a consequence we have suspended our Travel Clinics as all of the above mentioned medication and vaccines would need to be issued on private script which can be as well obtained from Private Travel Clinics and Pharmacies providing Travel Services.
