Formulary

This is an electronic version of our Formulary written in conjunction with the Medicine Management Committee and the Pharmacy department.   The purpose of the Formulary is:

  • To promote safe, rational and cost effective prescribing within the Trust.
  • To help select the most appropriate drug amongst the many available.

 

This formulary is intended to act as a rapid reference source.  It is intended for the guidance of medical practitioners, nurses and other healthcare workers.

 

For local GPs and Non-medical prescribers working in the community there is the Greater Manchester Joint Formulary produced by the Greater Manchester Medicines Management Group (GMMMG).  The formulary ensures that patients receive seamless care across the primary-secondary care interface and reduces the need for switching programmes. All medicines recommended for use in the NHS in a NICE Technology Assessment (TA) are approved for use in Greater Manchester, the GMMMG site provides a list of medicines with a positive recommendation from  NICE and provides links to these TAs in the GMMMG formulary.  In the SRFT formulary below all the drugs with a positive NICE TA that are applicable to SRFT are included in the formulary.
