Drugs excluded from national tariff

NWL CCGs have a list of commissioned medicines excluded from the national tarrif. 

Initiation of medicine 

These are the current tick box forms in use across North West London for initial authorisation of payment for high cost drugs, recommended by NICE. These should be completed by the acute trust wishing to obtain funding for a patient registered with a NWL Clinical Commissioning Group. Documents are available for download at the Hounslow CCG website.

Local agreements

NWL CCGs have agreed to commission some high cost drugs outside NICE guidelines. 

Rheumatoid arthritis – use of biologic outside of NICE guidance
Psoriatic arthritis – use of adalimumab, etanercept, golimumab or infliximab

Continuation forms

These are the current continuation forms in use across North West London for re-authorisation of payment for high cost drugs. These should be completed by the acute trust wishing to obtain further funding for a patient registered with a NWL Clinical Commissioning Group. Forms can be found here.

Individual funding requests

For medicines and/or indications that are not routinely commissioned, these require an individual funding request. Forms can be found here.
