Mental Health Medicines Formulary 17/18
The Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) mental health formulary is a reference guide that highlights the formulary decisions approved by the CWP Medicines Management Group in conjunction with Primary Care. Medicine selection has been based on evidence of efficacy and adverse effects, and prudent considerations around cost. It is intended that the formulary promotes rational prescribing of cost effective medicines in recognition of limited resources. The clinical evidence reviewed in reaching these decisions is based on research studies published in reputable journals, national clinical guidelines and technology appraisals from NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and SMC (Scottish Medicines Consortium), and professional body guidelines.
