Dispensing practice name and address

The Dispensing practice name and address report is produced monthly and provides the name and address details of dispensing practices for each primary care organisation (PCO).

It also includes:

  • how many GPs are in each practice and how many of them are dispensing GPs
  • practice name
  • practice address
  • total GPs within the practice
  • number of dispensing GPs within the practice

It is updated each month to include 24 rolling months.

A dispensing practice is defined as a practice with at least one active dispensing GP. The information NHS Prescription Services hold on practices is supplied to NHS Prescription Services by primary care organisations (PCOs), which include clinical commissioning groups, local authorities, provider organisations and commissioning hubs (prior to November 2014).
