Other funded emollients
We have received advice that patients could use alternative funded emollients, including cetomacrogol (Pharmacode: 2615509), in place of aqueous cream. An alternative funded emollient would require a new prescription.
Patients can talk to their prescriber about alternative funded emollients(external link).
