A decision was taken at Richmond CCG’s recent governing body meeting in public, that the CCG no longer supports the routine NHS prescribing of the following products:

  • Prescriptions for gluten free food
  • Prescriptions for vitamin D maintenance
  • Prescriptions for medicines which are available over the counter

These decisions were taken following an engagement exercise (Choosing Wisely for Richmond) which took place between 22 December 2016 and 3 February 2017. You can see a detailed report of the findings of the engagement exercise here.

Below are the pati​ent information leaflets and position statements that relate to the prescribing changes.​
