Prescribing and Medicines Optimisation


NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group are responsible for the prescribing budgets of its member practices.

The CCG employs its own medicines optimisation team who work closely with the GP practices to support high quality cost effective prescribing.

The CCG hosts the Area Prescribing Committee which oversees the introduction of new drugs and guidelines into the local health economy and manages the Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Prescribing Formulary. The Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Formulary can be accessed online at The Area Prescribing Committee has also approved the Hampshire–wide Wound Management Formulary for local use.

All medicines that are recommended in NICE Technology Appraisal Guidance are automatically included on our formulary within 90 days of publication. The only exceptions to this would be if the recommended medicine is not going be prescribed in the local NHS, because the condition it is used for is only treated at specialist centres outside the local area.
