For formulary products used less commonly, there maybe a 24-hour delay before the product is available on site as stocks may not be routinely kept.

This formulary does not contain the information necessary for prescribing, dispensing or administration. It should be used in conjunction with the British National Formulary (BNF), supplemented as necessary from specialist publications and manufacturers’ Summaries of Product Characteristics (SPC), local guidelines and national guidelines. It is intended for use by prescribers who have the necessary training and experience to interpret the information it provides.
