Change in access to formulary

In order to improve access to all wound formulary products and reduce the need for prescribing with immediate effect all Ist, 2nd and 3rd line wound formulary products will be available via NHS supplies.  Procurement has updated the favourites list.

However, please note that 3rd line products will only be unmasked by the tissue viability team on a patient by patient basis with strict control on amounts requested.  Please ensure that 3rd line items are not requested unless agreed or advised by tissue viability.

The tissue viability team will need a clear rationale for the request and/or documented evidence of agreement/advice to use being given by the tissue viability team.
