NSW Medicines Formulary

The NSW Medicines Formulary is a list of medicines and other therapeutic agents that have been approved for use within NSW public hospitals and health services. It includes the approved indication, dose formulations and any applicable prescribing restrictions for each medicine.

The NSW Medicines Formulary and associated governance aims to support optimum clinical governance and better value health care. This integrated state-wide approach for evaluating and approving the use of medicines will reduce unnecessary clinical variation, improve safety and enable a state-based approach to the procurement of those medicines.

Since 2020, the CEC have been working in partnership with the Ministry of Health who are leading the procurement reform project to establish the NSW Medicines Formulary and associated governance.
