Traffic Light Status Information

Status Description

Preferred

Clinicians are free to prescribe these drugs. They are regarded as cost effective choices which have evidence to support their use.  

Second Line

These drugs should only be prescribed in the scenarios described in the formulary after preferred drug(s) have been ruled out.  

Non Formulary

Non-formulary choice - the vast majority of a patient’s needs should be met by use of formulary preferred choices and second line options when appropriate. Therefore the Clinician should only use a non-formularly drug if this can be justified and it is recommended that all such instances are recorded in the patient record.  

Green SA

Specialist Advised – Specialists may simply advise a patient’s GP to initiate these drugs themselves after they have made an initial assessment. Note: SA drugs can be initiated by the specialist according to patient need and also depending on local commissioning arrangements which may mandate, through the contract between provider and commissioner, that all SA drugs are treated as SI.  

Green SI

Specialist Initiation - These drugs must be initiated, i.e. the first dose prescribed, by the specialist and then may be continued when appropriate by the patient’s GP following communication from the specialist.  

Amber SC

Shared Care - Responsibility for prescribing may be transferred from secondary to primary care with the agreement of an individual GP and when agreed shared care arrangements have been established. The specialist MUST stabilize the patient before asking for care to be transferred. Only specialists should initiate these drugs. Prescribing should be transferred to GPs according to an Shared Care Agreement [SCA]   

Red SO

Specialist Only - These drugs are deemed to be not appropriate for prescribing by GPs. Specialists should not ask GPs to prescribe these drugs.   

Black BL

Black Listed Medicines - These drugs are considered inappropriate for prescribing in Coventry & Warwickshire as they are either not cost-effective or of proven benefit or both.   

Not Recommended

Not Recommended - These are specialist drugs that are not recommended for use.  

Not Recommended / Black

These are specialist drugs that are not recommended for use and also, included on our local blacklist.
