Have your say on the prescribing of over-the-counter medicines for minor conditions
NHS England wants to hear the views of patients and the public on the prescribing of over-the-counter medicines for minor conditions. A national consultation sets out proposals showing how ending routine prescribing for minor, short-term conditions could free up vital funds for NHS frontline care.
To get involved and have your say on the consultation, you are invited to attend one of the following meetings or webinars:
- Wednesday 21 February, 1pm – 2:30pm – Webinar (online)
- Monday 5 March, 2pm – 4pm – London (face to face)
To register for one of these sessions please visit the NHS England website, go to the bottom of the page and click on your chosen event. The consultation closes on 14 March 2018.

Healthwatch Lincolnshire is investigating if ‘where people live affects their health’
Health related housing issues in Lincolnshire may include physical health, mental health or just your general wellbeing and happiness and can cost the NHS up to £2 billion per year (Kings Fund 2016)1.
Does the property you live in generate problems and issues that you then find difficult to cope with?
Problems can include such things as being unable to keep warm because of inadequate heating or poor insulation; mould in one or more rooms; your home being too big or small for your needs but you are unable to move; you have nuisance neighbours or feel very isolated because of where you live.
Your feedback will be used to influence part of a new Lincolnshire wide Housing Strategy being developed by Lincolnshire County Council, in partnership with the District Councils. We may also carry out a further piece of work to do a more in depth investigation into one or more of the outcomes from this survey. This survey closes on 16 March 2018.
