NHS: Drugs

Volume 461: debated on Monday 11 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 14 May 2007, Official Report, column 606W, on NHS: drugs, what recent discussions she has had on limits on the length of prescription periods. (138870)

We have had no such discussions. Responsibility for prescribing, including the issue of repeat prescribing and the length of prescriptions, rests with the clinician who has clinical responsibility for that particular aspect of a patient’s care.
