Prescribing by GP Practice Datasets

All of these data releases are under the terms of the Open Government Licence

Financial Year 2021/2022

GP Prescribing information for October 2021 to January 2022 has been revised following a merger with practices 556 and 532 on 30th September 2021. Prescribing previously allocated to practice 556 between October 2021 and January 2022 has now been allocated to practice 532.

Following the development of a new database, data for August 2021 onwards may show a change in quantity for some inhalers, sprays and solutions. Where quantities were previously listed as a device, this may now show the amount of doses dispensed.

After examining discrepancies relating to the BNF, developments have been made to GP Prescribing data following an improved extract from the English BSA. Therefore, from September 2018 onwards, the data will show a more fully populated 'BNF Code' column. Some changes to BNF Chapter and Section will have occurred as part of this process.
