New formulary launched for Gloucestershire

28/03/13

A new Gloucestershire-wide drug formulary website is due to be launched on April 1. 

The new Joint Formulary will be used by all NHS prescribers in Gloucestershire to promote evidence-based, safe, cost-effective prescribing. The new website will be freely available on the internet to improve accessibility to all clinicians and patients across the county.

The Joint Formulary has been developed in the spirit of co-operative collaboration between Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Gloucestershire Care Services, and 2gether NHS Foundation Trust.

It will be fundamental to all aspects of medicines management and will ensure equity and continuity of treatment between the primary and secondary care settings.
