Prescription data

We provide prescribing, dispensing and organisation data to help NHS stakeholders track trends and to inform decisions.

Using a wide range of information based on prescribing and dispensing, we create reports specific to user needs and requirements.

These reports allow informed decisions to be made in order to deliver value for money services to patients and taxpayers.

Information is made available to Primary Care Organisations (PCOs), NHS stakeholders and the general public to help with:

  • performance management
  • financial planning
  • adhering to clinical best practice
  • compliance with regulations
  • identifying outlier behaviour
  • publication of national statistics
