01.09.14 There is currently a shortage of Bactroban Nasal Ointment 2% from the manufacturer. We were using Naseptin Nasal Cream as a replacement. We will now be using Octenidine (Octenisan®) nasal gel in all patients.
21.8.14 Niquitin lozenges will be unavailable due to a manufacturing problem until the end of 2014. Therefore Niquitin gum may be used as the Formulary alternative during the shortage period.

This Formulary is intended for use by staff working within Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust.  It is intended to guide treatment choice both for initiation in hospital and recommendation to primary care.

Formulary items are displayed at the top of each page.  Next to each entry is a link to the BNF and SPC for more detailed prescribing information.  Non-formulary items (including brands where generic prescribing is required) are shown in red at the bottom of each page.

Traffic Light For medicines classified as Double Red by NPAG, prior approval from the CCG is required before prescribing.
*IFR request forms, prior approval forms and shared care protocols can be accessed via the PathfinderRF site.
