Therapeutic Advisory Service (TAS)

TAS is responsible for managing the introduction of new, non-cancer, drugs into the Leicestershire community.  The committee has representation from secondary and primary care and meets approximately every 6 weeks.  Decisions are automatically taken forward to LMSG for consideration and are incorporated into the Leicestershire Medicines Formulary as appropriate.  Applications for new drugs can be made online below following registration

TAS does not consider new drugs for mental health which are evaluated by the Leicestershire Partnership Trust Prescribing Group.
