Medicines are a vital part of health services and used as the most common treatment in the NHS. They cost the NHS around £11 billion a year. This makes it, second to staff costs, the biggest single cost in the NHS. Sometimes it is necessary for changes to be made to medicines that are prescribed; this does maximise cost effective prescribing but this may also be due to more effective drugs becoming available, safety reasons or the result of new medical information/medical studies.
Your care will not be compromised in these changes and any problem with a change in medication will always be dealt with promptly.
