Joint Formulary Committee (JFC)

About Us

The North Central London Joint Formulary Committee (NCL JFC) advises commissioners, provider trusts and primary care clinicians in NCL on appropriate, equitable, evidence-based and cost-effective medicines use. The JFC scientifically assesses medicines in terms of comparative efficacy, safety, convenience and cost-effectiveness. The remit of JFC is scientific and advisory in nature and hence makes recommendations to accountable budget holders.

The JFC is driven by an evidence-based approach and new medicines will be recommended if they offer a significant advantage over existing products or suitably address an unmet clinical need. NCL JFC membership includes consultants, GPs, pharmacists, other health professionals and a patient partner.
