We provide prescribing and financial information relating to the provision of pharmaceutical services. We also calculate payments that are due to dispensing contractors in primary care.
Organisational changes and new arrangements for commissioning health services came into effect in April 2013.
These changes meant that organisations including Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and local authorities began to use pharmaceutical services. Because of this, they needed access to FP10s and prescribing and financial information.
Factsheets are available to help users to understand the changes and to give an overview for new users. These are currently under review following the Integrated Care Boards (ICB) restructure on 1 July 2022. We will provide the updated factsheets as soon as they are ready.
