The NENC Integrated Care System now has one governance procedure through the ICB Medicines Sub-Committee. This is supported by Northern Treatment Advisory Group (NTAG) and its subgroups. Until guidance can be reviewed by the ICB Medicines Sub-Committee and its sub-groups all guidance and agreements previously approved by the predecessor three Area Prescribing Committees (APCs) of County Durham & Tees Valley; North of Tyne, Gateshead & North Cumbria; and South Tyneside & Sunderland are still valid. ICB approved prescribing guidance and agreements will be hosted on the NTAG website moving forward and this is available publicly at https://ntag.nhs.uk/ .
The Committee will normally meet every three months. However, additional meetings may be arranged should a need arise.
Documents for meetings will be circulated to members at least 1 week prior to the meeting, unless they are exceptionally urgent.
