About Us

In common with other local health communities, the Leicestershire Medicines Strategy Group (LMSG) acknowledges the benefits of having a Leicestershire Health Community-wide strategy for the prescribing of specialist medicines and the managed entry of new drugs and related technologies.

Leicestershire Health Community comprises the three Clinical Commissioning Groups*, University Hospitals of Leicester (UHL) NHS Trust and Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT), amongst which there is a total consensus on the need for this strategy, and the LMSG has been in place since 2005.

The guidelines and information on this website also apply to the Alliance Care contract.
