Consultations

We seek your views to make sure our policies are well informed and meet the needs of healthcare professionals and patients in the UK.

We consult on a wide range of topics, like developing guidance, changing our rules or reforming our procedures.

Thanks to those individuals and organisations who responded or engaged with us. We had asked for views on remote consultations and prescribing via telephone, video-link or online.
