Thank you for your request for information as outlined below:
Under the Freedom of Information Act, I’d like to request data on PCNs issued within the NHS.
Specifically, I’d like to request the number of NHS Prescription Penalty Charges issued, and the sum of these Penalty Charges over the past year, 2022.
Could I please receive this data for the country, broken down by the areas of Integrated Care Partnerships. I would like the number and sum for each individual area.
If this is not possible, can I please receive this broken down regionally, in the most convenient way for your retrieval. (Local authority, NHS trust areas, etc).
