ePACT2 gives authorised users access to prescription data.
You can access online analyses of prescribing data held by NHS Prescription Services. Data is available 6 weeks after the dispensing month.
ePACT2 provides easy-to-use analysis, reports and dashboards. You can access the system with an internet connection.
ePACT2 has more functionality than the original ePACT system, including the ability to:
- interrogate prescription data in ways not possible before
- create data visualisation using interactive reports and dashboards
- look at high level data summaries down to individual prescription item detail
- schedule queries to be pre-run so results are available when you open a dashboard
- export data from reports and dashboards
- access whole country data
- view patterns of prescribing at patient level

Understanding ePACT2 data
Certain parts of ePACT and ePACT2 are not comparable. This is because we have enhanced ePACT2 to provide an improved data set.
An explanation of the fields held in the system is available on the Data Dictionary (Excel: 49 KB).
You can use the age logic summary flowchart (PDF: 205 KB) for information on how patient age is determined in ePACT2.
Training and support
There are a number of dashboards which are available to all ePACT2 users.
Information on the available dashboards and their specifications is available at ePACT2 dashboards.
