NHS England has launched a consultation inviting GPs, clinical commissioning groups, patients and members of the public to comment on whether low-cost items that can be purchased over the counter for common minor ailments should remain available on prescription. The cost to the NHS for items like basic painkillers and eyedrops is estimated at £136m a year.

NHS North West Surrey CCG (NWS CCG) is pleased to present its first Annual Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Report delivered in this format.  Historically, this report has been delivered within the CCG’s Annual Report and Accounts, which is normally published in September of each year. However, it has been decided to now publish the report every January, to align with the practises of our partner organisations.
