This book is a comprehensive guide to all the important issues in managing a primary care budget. It will help GPs and other healthcare professionals to understand and to make the most effective use of the prescribing allocation. It gives numerous examples of how savings can be made, and outlines the resources which are available. The purchase of OTC drugs is a real option for patients, and a new formulary is included which classifies medicines according to their active ingredients in much the same way as the BNF does for prescribing drugs. Other alternatives to prescribing such as lifestyle changes and alternative therapies are considered with examples of where these can be used. All members of the primary care team, financial managers and boards members in health authorities, primary care groups and trusts, and pharmacists will find it an essential resource.
