We've been working with NHS Improvement to produce a data set on prescribing in a hospital setting which has been dispensed in the community.
The data is related to items prescribed and dispensed in England.
The data fields include:
- period name
- BNF name
- BNF code
- hospital trust code
- hospital trust name
- total quantity
- total items
- total actual cost
- total NIC
Due to an underlying error in the data which affected the 'Actual Cost' and 'Out of Pocket Expenses' fields, we have had to re-run the ePACT2 data for the months of October, November and December 2019.
If you downloaded the reports for these three months before 11am on 15 April 2020 you will need to download these again for the revised figures.
You can read our guidance document (Word: 249KB) which will help you understand the data.
