CPJPG designates drugs according to the following classifications:

 

RECOMMENDED:  Reviewed by CPJPG and considered for suitable for prescribing in primary care.

 

RECOMMENDED (WITH Shared Care):  Reviewed by CPJPG and considered suitable for initial prescribing/administering by specialists in secondary and tertiary care with prescribing continued by GPs and primary care clinicians in conjunction with a Shared Care guideline.

 

RECOMMENDED – Specialist advice:  Reviewed by CPJPG and considered suitable for prescribing/administering by GPs and primary care clinicians on the advice of specialists in secondary and tertiary care.

 

RECOMMENDED – Specialist initiation (WITHOUT Shared Care):  Reviewed by CPJPG and considered suitable for initial prescribing/administering by specialists in secondary and tertiary care with prescribing continued by GPs and primary care clinicians (no formal Shared Care guideline).

 

HOSPITAL ONLY:  Not routinely funded for prescribing in primary care because of clinical issues and/or in line with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG policy, not a priority for funding.  Prescribing may be subject to challenge.

 

NOT RECOMMENDED:  CPJPG advises that the clinical case for use of drugs assigned this classification is not proven. Such drugs will not be funded for use in primary or secondary care.

 

Any new drug or new indication for a drug should be regarded as NOT RECOMMENDED until it has been considered by the CPJPG.
