The criteria for consideration of a drug can be found below. If your request fits at least one of the criteria for consideration, then proceed as follows:

  • To add a new drug to formulary, or a new indication for an existing drug, complete form 1.
  • To amend the formulary, such as changing a drug from alternative to first choice or complete removal of a drug, complete form 2.
  • For minor amendments, such as correcting an error or adding links to safety alerts or guidance, complete form 3

Please note that forms 1 and 2 must be completed by a healthcare professional currently working in the NHS in Greater Manchester, and supported and signed by a clinical / medical director or head of medicines management. Ideally these should also have been considered and approved by the local drugs and therapeutics committee prior to submission to the Clinical Reference Group.

Full instructions on how to make a submission can be found below in “Guidance for completion of new medicine request form”. Forms should be submitted to nuth.enquires.gmmmg@nhs.net.
