NHS West Kent Clinical Commission Group encourages cost-effective use of medicines and other items provided on prescription in the Local Health Economy.
The West Kent Interface formulary (IF) and has been developed in conjunction with Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust and is a tool that supports this aim. Both primary and secondary care prescribers and health care professionals have all had an input into the production of each chapter, either by contributing in the wider consultation or by being directly involved in the West Kent Prescribing Interface Group or Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells Drugs & Therapeutics Committee. The IF contains a list of medicines recommended for prescribing as well as approved prescribing and shared care guidelines.
The Interface Formulary (IF) covers all 15 chapters of the British National Formulary (BNF) and is designed to be used in conjunction with the BNF.
All material in this formulary is aimed at health professionals, but is information currently held within the public domain. Members of the public seeking advice on medicine-related matters are encouraged to speak with their GP, pharmacist or nurse, or contact NHS 111 service.
