About the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Area Prescribing Committee

In common with other local health communities, the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Area Prescribing Committee (LLR APC) acknowledges the benefits of having a Leicestershire Health Community-wide strategy for the prescribing of specialist medicines and the managed entry of new drugs and related technologies.

Leicestershire Health Community comprises the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Integrated Care Board, University Hospitals of Leicester (UHL) NHS Trust and Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT), amongst which there is a total consensus on the need for this strategy, and the LLR APC has been in place since 2005.
