§ 54. Mr. Pavitt
asked the Minister of Health if he will issue a further Executive Council Note to prescribers to counteract the trend noted by pharmacists to prescribe excessive quantities of medicines to patients since the reimposition of prescription charges.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
The circular I am about to issue on pre-payment certificates will repeat an earlier suggestion that it should not normally be necessary for doctors to prescribe in larger quantities than they would consider necessary on clinical grounds.
