Lancashire and South Cumbria ICB Formulary for Wound Care Products
 East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen Wound Care Prescribing
 A new wound care formulary has been developed for use in Lancashire and South Cumbria  Integrated Care Board [ICB].
 It was compiled by the Tissue Viability Nurses within the 5 Trusts in the ICB.
 In East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen GPs will no longer be asked to prescribe for wound care products as arrangements 
 have been put in place for products to be ordered direct from NHS Supplies.  
 The exception to this is for Nursing Homes where products will still be issued via FP10s. 
 Please note: GPs should not be asked to prescribe for non-nursing care homes or residential homes
 A PDF version of the new ELHT Wound Care Formulary can be viewed here.
 Nursing Homes should use the Dressing Request and Exception Form when requesting prescriptions from the GP - click here
