GP practices vote on the proposal of a merger of the six Clinical Commissioning Groups to create a single Clinical Commissioning Group.
The voting request follows recent communications with practices on the proposed merger. This paper provides feedback on the comments and discussions that have taken place over the last few months. There is also a draft paper produced by the clinical chairs on the proposed Clinical Input into the new System, which has been one of the most frequently asked questions from GPs.
If you have any feedback or queries please contact a clinical lead:

Community Health Matters – engaging new and emerging communities
We have been working with local community organisations to engage with new and emerging communities in Nottingham City.

Prescribing of gluten free foods
In June 2018 a six-week consultation was held across Greater Nottingham on whether gluten free foods should be available on prescription. As a result of this consultation, the prescribing of gluten free foods was stopped except for children. This decision was in line with national guidance on the prescribing of gluten free foods.
Read about gluten free prescribing here.
Medicines available over the counter
Over the summer of 2018 we engaged with people across Nottingham City to determine whether we should implement national guidance on the prescribing of medicines available over the counter.
From November 2018, over the counter medicines will no longer be routinely available on prescription for minor illnesses.
The restrictions do not affect prescribing of over the counter medicines for longer-term or more complex conditions, or where minor illnesses are symptomatic or a side effect of something more serious.
Read about changes to the prescribing of over-the-counter medicines here.
The Over The Counter Medicine engagement report is available here.
To find out more about how we have involved local people in our work see our annual engagement report.
