Pregabalin prescribing - INFORMATION FROM THE LMC

CONFIDENTIAL TO LMC MEMBER PRACTICES ONLY, NOT TO BE SHARED OR FORWARDED IN WHOLE OR PART WITHOUT THE LMC’S CONSENT

Please find attached a guidance notice from NHS England which it has instructed CCGs to circulate to all practices by the end of the week.You will read that NHS England is under legal obligation to issue this guidance.Please also find attached a GPC statement in respect of the NHS England notice.I’m sure the contents of the documents will be self-explanatory for you, and I can assure you that the GPC statement has been issued only following careful consideration and legal advice.

I have no doubt you will be as appalled as I am by this development, which might turn out to be the thin end of an extremely nasty wedge.
