The main aim of this formulary is to promote safe, evidence-based, cost-effective prescribing.

Limiting the range of medicines included in the formulary and promoting the use of generic medicines where appropriate:-

  • Enhances safety through familiarity with the medicines in use in the hospital by all staff
    involved in the prescribing, dispensing and administration of medicines
  • Ensures efficient use of NHS resources
  • Ensures efficient use of limited storage space both within the hospital pharmacies and
    on the wards, enhances good stock control and reduces the pharmacy stock holding

Streamlining medicines choices in line with our local Area Prescribing committee also ensures appropriate and equitable use of medicines across the local health economy. 

The introduction of new medicines to the medicines formulary is managed by the Joint Warwickshire Drugs and Therapeutics Committee.

The DTC meets monthly and members (consultants, pharmacists, nurses and GP's) come from the Trust and the host clinical commissioning group.

Positive NICE technology appraisals

Medicines which have been granted a positive technology appraisal by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) have been automatically included in our local formulary.

We are compliant with the 90 day window given to include a medicine with a positive NICE technology appraisal in our formulary.

Proposals to include other medicines require a consultant to make a submission to the pharmacy department.  Requests for inclusion of new medicines should be discussed with the specialty pharmacist and a DA1 application completed: DA1 Form
