March 2018: NHS England Guidance for CCGs: Conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care and implementation resources


The NHS in and around Southampton and West Hampshire reviews the use of medicines through the Basingstoke, Southampton and Winchester District Prescribing Committee (DPC). The main aim of the DPC is to ensure that there is a consistent approach to prescribing the most safe, efficacious and cost effective medicines across the local healthcare community. The Southampton Joint Medicines Formulary follows recommendations from the DPC, and is for use by all primary and secondary care prescribers within Southampton (See 'about’).

This formulary provides a list of medicines available for routine prescribing or those available within certain criteria. Unless otherwise stated, the medicines selected are recommended as first choice, particularly for new patients. Those patients stabilised on other therapies may be switched to a formulary drug if and when clinically appropriate.
