We want to ensure that our patients get the medicines they need to achieve the best possible health outcomes within the budget we have available.
Our Bedfordshire and Luton Joint Formulary aims to provide high quality, safe, evidence-based and affordable prescribing. It gives details of the most appropriate first choice of medicines for GP practices to use for patients in Bedfordshire.
The formulary is not intended to supersede NICE Technology Appraisals. Clinicians can and should prescribe medicines approved by NICE Technology Appraisals where patients meet the clinical criteria set out in the guidance and that it is the most appropriate treatment option in the clinical judgement of the treating clinician.
For more about the Bedfordshire and Luton Joint formulary and the local Bedfordshire and Luton Joint Prescribing Committee, please see the GP Ref website.
