Fife NHS Board Area Drugs and Therapeutics Committee


Through this website, we wish to establish a spirit of openness, remove barriers to communication, and to create an opportunity for dialogue with prescribers, other Health Boards, and with the public. We recognise the need to share decisions, and the basis for them, so that we can encourage agreement on best prescribing practice not only within Fife but across Scotland.
