Adherence to the formulary is strongly recommended by GMMMG and this formulary supersedes all local formularies. The formulary is applicable to new initiations and should meet the needs of the majority of adult patients.

The GM Formulary includes medicines and technologies for use in adult patients only. For information relating to prescribing in children prescribers should refer to the BNF and BNFc.

The GMMMG Formulary lists products by generic drug name. For some drugs, branded generics may offer a more economical means of procurement in Primary Care. In this instance the brand with the lowest acquisition cost and greatest ease of acquisition should be prescribed according to local choice.
