The Northern Ireland Formulary follows the BNF structure, click on the chapter links to navigate to the area of interest.

The aim of the Northern Ireland Formulary is to support the provision of safe, clinically effective and cost-effective medicines.  The formulary covers first and second line drug choices for non-specialist areas to guide the majority of prescribing decisions.  It is intended to be used across both primary and secondary care in Northern Ireland to ensure consistency and continuity of supply to the benefit of patients that require medicines.

Whilst the formulary aims to standardise practice it is recognised that individual patients may require medicines which lie outside this guidance.
