The Medicines Formulary
The Medicines Formulary has been designed as a tool to assist in promoting safe, cost-effective prescribing within the NHS. The aim is that the Formulary will cover 80-90% of prescribing within the Health Community although we recognise that there will be instances where prescribing outside of the formulary will be both necessary and appropriate
In line with the NHS Constitution we aim to treat all patients within a maximum of 18 weeks of receiving your referral letter from your GP General Practitioner. Unfortunately, in some cases the COVID pandemic has caused delays in treatment, but we are working hard to return things to normal and treat patients as soon as possible.
