NSW Medicines Formulary

The NSW Medicines Formulary is a list of medicines approved for initiation in inpatients in NSW public hospitals and health services (including NSW Ambulance). The formulary includes the approved indication, dose formulations and prescribing restrictions for individual medicines, where applicable.

The NSW Medicines Formulary and associated governance supports optimum clinical governance and better value health care. The integrated state-wide approach for evaluating and approving the use of medicines reduces unnecessary clinical variation, improves safety, and enables a state-based approach to the procurement of those medicines.
