How the information is supplied
The information NHS Prescription Services hold on practices is supplied to us by CCGs, Area Teams, Commissioning Support Units, Hospital Trusts, Local Authorities and Independent Sector Healthcare Providers Commissioning Hubs (until November 2014) and provider organisations.
GP practices may consist of a number of different types of prescribers, including GPs, nurse prescribers, pharmacist prescribers, optometrist supplementary prescribers, physiotherapist supplementary prescribers and podiatrist supplementary prescribers.
NHS Prescription services only captures the initial and surname of prescribers.
Some of the 'Practices' listed in the information are not traditional practices. They are other services which the PCO has set up as a practice ie specialist units or out of hours services. These units are often indicated as having one prescriber linked to the practice however there may be more.
The data includes prescriber details for Isle of Man, Jersey , Guernsey and Alderney.
The NHSBSA does not keep records of prescriber details from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
