About Us

The Northern Ireland Medicines Governance Team was initially established in secondary care in August 2002 and extended to cover primary care in 2010. The secondary care team is made up of  6 senior pharmacists and an administrator dedicated to medicines risk management in acute Trusts in Northern Ireland.

Medicines Governance in primary care is supported by the Pharmacy & Medicines Management Team at the Health & Social Care Board (HSCB).


The Teams work collaboratively to support local and regional Medicines Governance initiatives.
