NHS England and NHS Improvement have been coordinating implementation of the recommendations of the Public Health England review, ‘Dependence and withdrawal associated with some prescribed medicines: An evidence review’. This includes developing a framework to support commissioners to optimise prescribing of dependence forming medicines.

To support the development of the framework, a call for case studies was issued on 15 December 2020. The call was aimed primarily at commissioners, providers and other appropriate organisations such as those in the third sector. The deadline for submissions has recently been extended to the 29 January 2021 to allow stakeholders more time to respond.
