Prescription requests

CCGs and other provider organisations wishing to request prescriptions need to contact their Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) (formerly Area Team) if they want to receive un-redacted copies

Your request should cover no more than a three month period. This will help us respond to requests more quickly.
