A copy of the information is attached.
The data source was the NHSBSA Information Services Data Warehouse.
The time period covered is November 2018 - May 2019.
NHSBSA Prescription Services process prescriptions for Pharmacy Contractors, Appliance Contractors, Dispensing Doctors and Personal Administration with information then used to make payments to pharmacists and appliance contractors in England for prescriptions dispensed in primary care settings (other arrangements are in place for making payments to Dispensing Doctors and Personal Administration). This involves processing over 1 billion prescription items and payments totalling over £9 billion each year. The information gathered from this process is then used to provide information on costs and trends in prescribing in England and Wales to over 25,000 registered NHS and Department of Health and Social Care users.
This dataset is limited to items prescribed via the Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS) to patients whose post code begins 'YO26 6'.
This dataset is limited to items dispensed by Gale Farm Pharmacy 109-119 FRONT STREET, ACOMB, YORK, YO24 3BU (FCW26).
"No. of Items" shows the number of times a product appears on a prescription form not the quantity prescribed.
All data is based on dispensed prescription items that were processed by the NHSBSA, not including items not dispensed, disallowed or returned back. Also excluding items prescribed but not presented for dispensing or not submitted to NHS Prescription Services by the dispenser.
