Statewide medicines formulary now available for prescribers

Western Australia’s first Statewide Medicines Formulary (SMF) has been developed by the WA Drug Evaluation Panel and the Department of Health to assist clinicians prescribe medicines to patients.

Formulary One (external site) (F1) is the web-based platform that hosts the SMF, and is designed to be user friendly, simple to use and provide you with trusted, accurate and complete information.

F1 features information from a number of sources including:

  • MIMS information 
  • Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme 
  • medicine product and consumer information
  • state and local guidelines and forms
  • links to locally subscribed library services

making it a one-stop-shop for medicines management.

Who can use F1?

F1 is available to all medicine prescribers working in the Western Australia public health system, along with prescribers working with public patients in private hospitals.

If you work with public patients in a private hospital in Western Australia, or are a public clinician using a hand held device, access to F1 will require a log-in, using your health employee (HE) number.

Contact us for further information about using F1 via this website.

Until November, we are seeking your comments and feedback as we apply the finishing touches to F1.  Please contact us with your ideas and comments.
