AWMSG brings together relevant healthcare consultants and key organisations to form expert panels for the consideration of a variety of issues relating to medicines management.
The All Wales Prescribing Advisory Group (AWPAG), a subgroup of AWMSG, advises AWMSG on clinical developments relating to medicines use in Wales. The AWMSG work programme is further supported by the All Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre (AWTTC), which includes the Welsh Analytical Prescribing Support Unit (WAPSU).
AWMSG are committed to ensuring equity of access to the most appropriate and cost-effective medicines for the people of Wales. Through monitoring prescribing patterns, reviewing the literature and identifying examples of best practice, AWMSG aim to provide service users in NHS Wales with useful resources to achieve this.
