The Medicines Information Service is available to healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, midwives, dentists, dieticians etc.) working in primary and secondary care. For patients across the London boroughs of Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth the service is available via the Medicines Helpline.
The Trust along with all NHS providers and primary care services within South West London prescribe in line with the South West London (SWL) Joint Medicines Formulary. The SWL formulary aims to recommend clinically effective, safe and economic medicines for use in both primary and secondary care. A joint formulary across both primary and secondary care supports prescribing across the hospital and primary care interface, to ensure consistency in prescribing and continuity in patient care.
