This web formulary is continuously updated. There is more information about our formulary here. Within the Trust more medicines information is found on the Drugs & Therapeutic pages and clinical practice is supported by policies and guidelines on Sharepoint as well as the information on Trustnet. We are constantly mitigating medication shortages and update formulary appropriately.
