GPs told to refuse third party script orders in bid to cut medicines waste


related - but not directly - generic prescribing. We keep being told by the CCG that prescribing brand X or Y is cheaper than Z. Unfortunately a few months down the line it is Z that's cheaper. Does someone need to look at the drug Tariff rules that make brands cheaper than generics?
