Specialist Medication: Shared Care + ADHD

General Approach to Specialist Request for Medication

We are required to prescribe in a consistent, safe and equitable way. Each medication request by any specialist will be considered and assessed in line with NHS GP best guidelines.

We prescribe when it is in accordance with the medication license, NHS NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellent) guidance and also the NCL (North Central London) JFC (Joint Formulary Committee) guidelines.
