Traffic Light Status Information

Status Description

Red

Medicines which should be prescribed by specialists only  

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 consider, 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 in 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. Where new drugs come to market, under APC policy 085, they will be classified Brown until a review is deemed necessary.  

Amber Prescribing Guidelines
