Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust adheres to the formulary developed by the Birmingham and Solihull Integrated Medicines Optimisation Committee (IMOC).
The IMOC has representation from all the local NHS secondary care providers, the Integrated Commissioning Board and local GPs. The formulary encourages safe, rational and cost-effective prescribing, and a unified choice of treatment for patients in the region to ensure seamless transition of care for patients.
