The Cornwall Joint Formulary


The Cornwall Joint Formulary

This has been designed as a tool to assist in promoting safe, cost-effective prescribing within the Cornwall Area. The aim is that the Joint Formulary will cover 80-90% of prescribing within the Cornwall Health Community although we recognise that there will be instances where prescribing outside of the formulary will be both necessary and appropriate.

The Joint Formulary is produced as a joint venture between primary and secondary care. This means that both primary and secondary care prescribers, community pharmacists, Primary Care Trust prescribing teams, clinicians and pharmacists from Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust all have input into the production of each chapter of the Joint Formulary, either by contributing in the wide consultation or being directly involved in the Joint Formulary Group.
