Greater Glasgow and Clyde Prescribing

This site has been designed as a tool to assist in promoting high quality, safe and cost-effective prescribing within the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board.  The website has useful resources for prescribers and patients including:

  • The GGC Adult Medicines Formulary as a searchable or navigational database
  • The Therapeutic Handbook: an essential resource for junior medical staff working in NHSGGC
  • Current prescribing and clinical information via the PostScript suite of publications
  • Information for patients on access to medicines
  • Policies relating to medicines in NHSGGC
  • Other formularies

About the GGC Adult Formulary:

  • The Formulary is intended to cover the vast majority of prescribing and covers both Primary Care and the acute setting.
  • The Preferred List is aimed predominently at General Practice and junior medical staff whereas the Total Formulary contains more specialist medicines and those which are not considered first-line within a therapeutic area.
  • A mobile version of the Adult Formulary is available when this website is viewed on a smartphone
