Following the May 2024 NENC Medicines Guidelines Group we now seek comments from across the NENC ICB on this new NENC wide position statement which has been developed to support new national dosing recommendations for oral iron.

Comments are welcomed from across the system, including residents and patients of the NENC. Comments will be returned to the medicines committee, or its sub-committee, and used to inform implementation of the decisions in NENC.

All comments will be reviewed but please do not expect a personal reply as we do not routinely reply to all comments. It is important to include any relevant evidence to back up any suggestions and please keep comments concise where possible.
