Medicines Management Team Formulary
The Medicines Management Team (MMT) have published a MMT Formulary on SystmOne which preferentially displays Sheffield Formulary recommended products along with other products that have been approved as cost effective choices or where there is important safety information to convey. This is automatically available for all Sheffield SystmOne practices and will take effect for each user provided they have the ‘Formulary Entries’ box ticked – please see this guide for further information.
The Sheffield Formulary has been produced under the auspices of the Sheffield Area Prescribing Group (APG) and is designed to give clear concise guidance on drug selection.
The formulary contains a list of preferred choices for non-specialist drugs and products, which will be available in both primary and secondary care. Please note that appropriate funding will be made available for all drugs that receive positive NICE technology appraisal, however not all of these drugs will be specifically listed in this non-specialist, primary care formulary.
The choice of preferred drugs has been made on the basis of evidence of clinical efficacy, safety, patient acceptability and cost effectiveness. The contents reflect wide consultation within the city.
