Appraisal process

Click on each of the stages below for a brief overview of the AWMSG appraisal process


Excluded medicines

The exclusion criteria are designed to provide broad guidance on products which fall outside the role and remit of AWMSG and where progression to formal appraisal is unlikely. In these circumstances Health Boards may consider whether individual products are appropriate for local formulary inclusion.

AWMSG Steering Committee decides whether the medicine meets the criteria for appraisal. The company will be informed of the AWMSG decision.
