Non-urgent advice: The ICB Medicines Sub-Committee
The NENC Integrated Care System now has one governance procedure through the ICB Medicines Sub-Committee. This is supported by Northern Treatment Advisory Group (NTAG) and its subgroups. Until guidance can be reviewed by the ICB Medicines Sub-Committee and its sub-groups all guidance and agreements previously approved by the predecessor three Area Prescribing Committees (APCs) of County Durham & Tees Valley; North of Tyne, Gateshead & North Cumbria; and South Tyneside & Sunderland are still valid whilst within their review date. Clinicians referring to this guidance after any expiry date should exercise caution. ICB approved prescribing guidance and agreements will be hosted on the NTAG website moving forward and this is available publicly at https://ntag.nhs.uk/ .
