    Prescribing should occur where the medicines are managed within a clinical trial. Where patients do not meet the clinical trial criteria, prescribing should only occur where data is collected to inform developing evidence. This should occur where there is good medicine governance and an ability to collect evidence, usually through a Drugs and Therapeutics Committee in hospital.
    By prescribing outside a clinical and without the collection of evidence, is a lost opportunity and will result in a dearth of evidence that it is either effective or ineffective.
