These formularies are not intended to supersede NICE Technology Appraisals (TAs). Most NICE TA approved drugs will be appropriate for initiation within secondary or tertiary care and may be specifically mentioned. Clinicians can and should prescribe medicines approved by NICE TAs where patients meet the clinical criteria set out in the guidance and that it is the most appropriate treatment option in the clinical judgement of the treating clinician.
