Herefordshire & Worcestershire Medicines and Prescribing Committee (MPC)

 

The Herefordshire & Worcestershire Medicines and Prescribing Committee (MPC) is a group of health care representatives across Herefordshire and Worcestershire operating in a partnership capacity, to provide and improve the health outcomes for the Integrated Care System (ICS) population by promoting safe, high quality, consistent, and transparent evidence-based recommendations on medicines [including prescribable (FP10) appliances] across the ICS health economy. 

The key objectives of the committee are:

  • To support clinical decision-making – formulary management, prescribing guidelines and policy development
  • To advise on medicines inclusion in treatment pathways and services
  • To facilitate interface discussion around medicines usage
  • To facilitate the Horizon Scanning framework

The committee will undertake work on behalf of NHS Herefordshire & Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, Worcestershire Health and Care Trust and Wye Valley NHS Trust.  The central principles of equitable, rational prescribing and medicines use, namely clinical and cost effectiveness, appropriateness (including convenience), safety and financial management, will guide the thinking and outputs of the committee.
