Medicines funded by the States of Guernsey

The States maintains a 'White List' of medicines (drugs) and medical appliances. They are available to residents of Guernsey, Alderney, Herm and Jethou on prescription following payment of the prescription charge (currently £4.10 per item), unless that resident is exempt from prescription charges.

Please note that there are also some specialist medicines (drugs) and medical products not on the list, which are approved for use in the hospital either for inpatients or for some outpatients e.g. people receiving chemotherapy.

Funding for medicines in the hospital and in the community has been agreed by the States of Guernsey on the advice of a group of local doctors and pharmacists in the Prescribing and Formulary Panel. Please click on the headings below for further information. The medicines and drugs that are currently approved for funding in the community can be viewed on the White List in the downloads section of this page.

If you would like more information about the White List and how medicines and appliances are added or removed from it, please see the Terms of Reference of the Prescribing and Formulary Panel in the downloads section of this page or contact Geraldine O'Riordan, Prescribing Advisor, tel: 01481 732460.
