Open consultations

Remote consultations and prescribing by telephone, video-link or online: Call for evidence

We’re asking organisations and individuals with relevant expertise to share their experiences, views, data and insights about remote consultations and prescribing via telephone, video-link or online.

We will use the submissions we receive together with other information we hold, to decide if we need to make any changes to our guidance for UK doctors, Good practice in prescribing and managing medicines and devices (February 2013). If so, this evidence will help us decide if we need to run a public consultation on a revised draft and help us shape the consultation document and methods.

The call for evidence will run from 26 November 2019 until 18 February 2020.

Closed consultations

We recently carried out the following consultations, which are now closed. Thank you to those who gave us feedback to inform our work in these areas.

We ran a public consultation on some proposed changes to how doctors collect and reflect on patient feedback as part of their revalidation from 30 April to 23 July 2019.

This consultation is now closed. 

We are currently analysing the responses and aim to publish revised guidance in early 2020. 

Please contact our patient feedback review team at [email protected] if you have any questions about the review.
