Spotlight on Prescriptions

Healthwatch Wolverhampton has received a number of patient experiences and concerns recently about prescriptions, including medication being changed or removed without patient’s knowledge as well as concerns about how Brexit may impact the availability of certain medications.  

Because of this feedback we will be holding a “Spotlight on” which is a public meeting allowing members of the public to find out more about a specific topic such as prescriptions, share experiences and ask questions to the people who make decisions and how these decisions are made.

Tracy Cresswell, Healthwatch Wolverhampton Manager, said: “We know that some patients are experiencing changes to their prescriptions without their knowledge or involvement in these decisions. We also know that the Brexit debate has caused concerns for some people about the future availability to access certain medications.

We urge patients who have experienced changes in their prescriptions to contact us on 0800 470 1944 or attend the “Spotlight on” on the 5 February.  

At our Spotlight on event, we will be joined by guest speaker(s) from the Clinical Commissioning Group who will be able to explain the changes and answer patient’s questions.”
