Expression of Interest (EOI) - Preparation of the Medication Formulary
PHECC Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG)

The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) is an independent statutory agency with responsibility for standards, education, and training in the field of pre-hospital emergency care. The Medical Advisory Committee of PHECC write the Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs). Council then approve the CPGs and authorise publication. The content of the next edition of the CPGs will be as per the following 6 clinical levels.




Preparation of Medication Formulary

The Medication Formulary to be developed via this EOI relates to the medications and the doses as specified on the Clinical Practice Guidelines in each edition of the CPG. This document will build on the previous editions and the Medication Formulary and will be independently verified to ensure patient safety and accuracy of content from a pharmacological perspective post creation. The pre-production version of the CPG contains 46 Medications and will form the base for this project’s output. The preparation of the Medication Formulary is an essential part of the CPG publication project.

The current format and style of the Medication Formulary as it specifically relates to each different clinical level can be viewed within the Clinical Practice Guidelines editions which are available on this page.
