Medicines Management

Medicines management

NHS South Eastern Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group are responsible for the prescribing budgets of its member practices.

The CCG has its own medicines management team who work closely with the GP practices to support high quality cost effective prescribing.

There is an Area Prescribing Committee, which is hosted by NHS Portsmouth CCG, which oversees the introduction of new drugs and guidelines into the local health economy and manages the Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Prescribing Formulary. The Area Prescribing Committee has also approved the Hampshire–wide Wound Management Formulary for local use.

This page will be developed over the coming months to provide information on the local prescribing decisions and policies.

We are now publishing information which sets out which NICE Technology Appraisals are included in our local formularies. This document will be regularly updated.
