Green
White or yellow soft paraffin ointment in contact with dressings or clothing is easily ignited by a naked flame. The risk will be greater when these preparations are applied to large areas of the body, and clothing or dressings become soaked with the ointment. Patients should be told to keep away from fire or flames, and not to smoke when using these preparations. The risk of fire should be considered when using large quantities of any paraffin-based emollient.

Traffic Light Status Information

Status Description

Amber

Medicines that should be initiated or recommended by a specialist for continuation in primary care. The specialist must notify the primary care provider that the prescribing responsibility has been transferred. Where applicable, shared care protocols will be agreed and must be adhered to. 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 not recommended for prescribing. 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 primary 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
