Map of Medicine

Map of Medicine supports the optimisation of care by providing access to comprehensive, evidence-based guidance, and clinical decision support at the point of care. Map of Medicine care pathways offer the opportunity to improve the way the commissioning of health care is planned and delivered locally.

Formulary and NICE Technology Appraisal

Our CCG adheres to the NICE technology appraisal process and recommendations for medicines. All medicines with a positive NICE technology appraisal will be automatically added to the local formulary. Where NICE states ‘option for treatment’, the medicine will be added to the local formulary and if necessary its place in the relevant local care pathway(s) be defined.
