• Bulletin 51 launched: Lidocaine plasters (DROP-List)

    This new bulletin looks at lidocaine plasters and provides the rationale for not initiating lidocaine plasters in new patients, and for current patients to be considered for discontinuation of their prescription for lidocaine plasters. 

    Please can we offer our apologies for the delay around this document, which was agreed to follow the NICE guidance around pain. Following the delays in the guidance being published, and in the interest of ensuring that our documents have the sufficient quality and are relevant within the wider landscape, this document has been published a couple of months later than anticipated.

    Following the release of the NICE guidance we are also in the process of finalising Bulletin 50 - Pregabalin in neuropathic pain, which is due to be published before the christmas break.
