NICE Guideline – GPG1 Developing and Updating Local Formularies
This guidance aims to provide good practice recommendations to assist NHS organisations in developing and updating local formularies effectively and in accordance with statutory requirements.
This guidance is designed to support:
- People involved in handling, prescribing and commissioning medicines within the NHS
- The development of local formularies that reflect local needs, reduce variation in prescribing, and allow rapid uptake of innovative medicines and treatments
It is written in the context of the NHS in England, but would also be applicable to developing and updating local formularies in Wales.
