Request for a New Medicine or Change in Regimen
| Any NHS healthcare professional working within the East Lancashire Health Economy
| can request that the MMB considers an application to assess a new medicine, and
| prioritise it against other competing requests.
| Where a clinician is considering requesting an intervention for a patient that is not already
|commissioned, but this patient represents the first of many, this will be considered only
|as a Service Development. As such, the clinican should request the intervention for all
| patients, The process for applying for a medicine to be reviewed as a service development
|by the MMB can be found below with the application form for a 'New Product, or Change
| of Regimen' and guidance relating to the governance arrangements of documents
|submitted to East Lancashire Medicines Management Board.
