ABOUT THE DORSET FORMULARY
This Formulary is for use by prescribers and healthcare professionals across Dorset. The development of the formulary has been overseen by the Dorset Formulary Working Group (a sub-group of the Dorset Medicines Advisory Group) and choices are based on clinical evidence as well as consultant and GP opinion.
The formulary aims to provide information on medicines available to prescribers, reflecting safe, evidence-based, cost-effective choices. This formulary replaces both the Pan-Dorset formulary, which remains available at http://www.dorsetccg.nhs.uk/aboutus/medicines-management/pan-dorset-formulary.htm for a short time, but also the individual Trust formularies at each respective participating Trust.
The Formulary is not intended to be a static document. If you would like a drug to be considered for inclusion in the Formulary please email either Formulary.Applications@dorsetccg.nhs.uk, or your Trust representative for a copy of the New Medicine Submission Form which you should then fill in.
