Paediatric Intravenous Medicines Monographs

What's New

Access to monographs is now available on non-NHS devices via an O365 Sharepoint site. Use your NHSGGC O365 credentials to access.

The Paediatric Risk and Effectiveness Committee  have approved the replacement of existing, locally produced paediatric IV monographs with national monographs from the Medusa Injectable Medicines Guide. (see below re: access from non-NHS pcs/devices) The monographs, which are updated regularly, have been prepared by the Medusa group in conjunction with the Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacists group (NPPG) and are in wide use in other areas of the NHS across the UK.
