Prescribing Support Team

Thank you for visiting Dumfries & Galloway Health Boards' Prescribing Support Team web site.

The site has been created to act as a central resource for all local drug advice as approved by Dumfries & Galloway Health Boards' Area Drug and Therapeutics Committee.

The ready access to prescribing information will support the safe and cost effective use of drugs in Dumfries & Galloway.

At present we spend £49million on drugs annually; it is therefore imperative that we maximise the health benefits from this investment for the people of Dumfries & Galloway through the use of evidence based medicine.
