    PCT Prescribing Data: October - December 2010, underlying data (2.73MB)
    Have your say - give us your comments on this publication.

Summary

This release adds data for October to December 2010. PCT Prescribing already contains data for the quarters April - June 2008, July - September 2008, October - December 2008, January - March 2009, April - June 2009, July to September 2009, October to December 2009, January to March 2010, April to June 2010 and October to December 2010. Other quarters will be added subsequently.

Note that there have been changes to PCTs from 1st April 2010. In some cases these are minor changes to names (often reflecting a change to Care Trust status). In such cases the earlier name will be retained for consistency. The PCTs East and North Hertfordshire and West Hertfordshire have merged to form Hertfordshire. Some prescriptions will continue to appear for the old PCTs for up to 6 months as prescriptions are valid for that period.

The data is being made available via a tool called iView, which will allow users to manipulate and extract data. To use iView you will need to create an account.

To create an account and view the data, follow this link: https://iview.ic.nhs.uk/pctprescribing/

To view a user guide which describes how to use iView, follow this link: webfiles/publications/PCTprescribing/User%20Guide%20prescribing%20V503.pdf

In line with the Making Public Data Public initiative, the data for October to December 2010 is also being made available as a comma-separated variable (csv) file. The structure of the file is:

    Quarter
    PCT code
    PCT Name
    BNF section code
    BNF section name
    Items
    Actual Cost
    Net Ingredient Cost

Note that the file has column headings and that this is as extracted from ePACT (service provided by Prescription Services) and no changes have been made. It therefore differs from the iView product.
