Contractor Details

The Contractor Details dataset is published monthly and contains a list of pharmacy contractors across England.

The list of contractors is based on information supplied to NHS Prescription Services by Integrated Care Board (ICBs) and should be taken as a guide only due to the problems gathering this information and any delays in informing NHS Prescription Services of changes.

Contractors indicated as 'Private - NHS Prescription Services only' captures private prescribing information for controlled drugs Schedule 2 and 3 (Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001) for information purposes.

Community pharmacies who submit FP10PCD forms require a private controlled drug account number which should be used when submitting these forms. This account number should also be used for submitting CD requisition forms and is a different account to the NHS account number used by contractors to submit NHS prescriptions.

The data includes contractors for Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney.

We do not keep records of contractors from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This data was previously published on the NHSBSA Information Services Portal. Changes have been made to the data since migration to the Open Data Portal and you can read about these changes in the Contractor Details migration changes documentation (ODT: 217KB).
