This release contains data for the quarter January to March 2014, by Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Data for April to December 2013 is already available by CCG. Data for April 2008 to March 2013 is available by Primary Care Trust (PCT), see link below.
The data are being made available via a tool called iView which will allow users to manipulate and extract data.
In line with the Making Public Data Public initiative, the data for January to March 2014 are also being made available as a comma separated variable (csv) file. The structure of the file is:
Area Team Code
Area Team Name
BNF section code
BNF section name
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.
3 December 2014 - The HSCIC has amended the format of the data it provides in iView, please see the link to the Methodological Change Notice in the 'Related Links' section below. A csv file reflecting these changes is also available, in addition to the original csv file.
