Desogestrel prescribed as a branded product by all Sub-ICB Locations

Why it matters: Desogestrel is available as both generic tablets and as a number of brands. For a time some of these brands were cheaper than the generic tablets, so CCGs started to use them. However the price of the generic has now fallen and is the cheapest option to prescribe.
