Medicines Management

Medicines are an integral part of the care and treatment that many local patients receive to manage their health conditions and improve their health. 

As commissioners efficient management of medicines is an important part of our mix in delivering positive outcomes for patients and value for money for NHS resources. We work closely with GP practices, community pharmacies and other clinicians and health professionals to ensure medicines are optimised so our patients receive evidence based treatments at a price affordable to the local health economy.

About the East Sussex Health Economy Formulary

The East Sussex Health Economy Formulary is a collaboration between primary and secondary care which promotes good quality prescribing in accordance with both local and national guidance. 

The East Sussex formulary has been developed as an advisory tool to assist in promoting safe, cost effective prescribing within the health economy. It aims to cover the majority of prescribing whilst recognising that there will be instances where prescribing outside the formulary will be both necessary and appropriate.
