County Durham and Darlington Drug Monitoring recommendations

Please forward any comments that you have on the guidelines to the author. Some of the recommendations are not necessarily in line with national best practice, rather they are a pragmatic approach combining safety and practicality in the real world of the Durham and Darlington primary care locality.

The aim of the Formulary is to promote safe, evidence-based and cost effective prescribing. It has been developed by the York and Scarborough Formulary Management team in association with Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and York and Scarborough Drug and Therapeutics Committee (DTC).

New medicines may be considered for inclusion in the Formulary following joint consideration by DTC and Vale of York/Scarborough and Rydale CCG Medicines Commissioning Committee (MCC). In addition, all drugs recommended by NICE Technology Appraisals are automatically included as a treatment option, when used in line with criteria set out in the guidance and local formulary policy. 

The database is formatted in accordance with BNF chapter classification for ease of use.   It includes hyperlinks to the e-BNF, eBNF(children) and Electronic Medicines Compendium which holds Summaries of Product Characteristics for more detailed prescribing information. Links to NICE Technology Appraisals have been included where a positive review has been published.

For new drug requests from within York and Scarborough Hospital, please contact the hospital Formulary Team for advice on which new product request form to complete.
