Dispensing Practice Name and Address

The Dispensing Practice Name and Address dataset is produced monthly and provides the name and address details of dispensing practices for each primary care organisation at Sub Integrated Care Board Level (SICBL).

It also includes:

• how many GPs are in each practice and how many of them are dispensing GPs

• practice name

• practice address

A dispensing practice is defined as a practice with at least one active dispensing GP. The information NHS Prescription Services hold on practices is supplied to NHS Prescription Services by primary care organisations (PCOs).

You can view all definitions for the fields included in the dataset in the Dispensing Practice Name and Address data dictionary (XLSX: 12KB)

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 Dispensing Practice Name and Address migration changes documentation (ODT: 217KB).
