    Traffic Light Status Information

    Status Description
      Amber   Medicines that should be initiated by a specialist and can be continued in primary care only under a shared care agreement and once the patient has been stabilised. Prior agreement must be obtained by the specialist from the primary care provider before prescribing responsibility is transferred. The shared care protocol must have been agreed by the relevant secondary care trust Drugs and Therapeutics Committee(s)(DTC) and approved by Berkshire West APC.   
      Brown   Drugs that have been reviewed and considered low priority. These drugs are not considered a cost effective use of scarce NHS resources. There may be individual patient specific or clinical reasons why a drug deemed low priority may be suitable for a particular patient. This is for the GP to condsider, weighing up the reasons against his/her allocated CCG budget. Where the decision is made to prescribe a low priority drug, detailed documentation must be included within the patients' notes for audit purposes. *Please note that low priority drug requests are unsuitable for the Case Review Committee and therefore should not be sent to this committee.   
      Green   Medicines suitable for routine use and can be prescribed within secondary care within their licensed indication in accordance with the BNF or other recognised national formulary. Primary care prescribers take full responsibility for prescribing  
      Red   Medicines which should be prescribed by specialists only
