Thank you for responding to my previous FOI request ID 25502 (at https://opendata.nhsbsa.net/dataset/foi-25502). Could I please request an update on this to cover any additional months for which data is available i.e. GP CPCS figures from April 2022 up to the most recent month for which data is available.
A copy of the information is attached.
GP CPCS referrals by month
The data source was the NHSBSA Information Services Data Warehouse.
April 2022 to February 2023 inclusive
Column header disp_code provides the dispenser code. We do not hold the Prescriber code but do hold the GP name, address and Post Code which are given as we hold them.
The number of requests in month, not the number of unique patients. This data has been calculated using our current methodology for counting referrals based on the data as it is received.
Since this is GP CPCS only, no items were supplied as a result of these referrals.
