This release contains prescribing data for the quarter October to December 2017, by Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) at British National Formulary (BNF) Section level. The data is made available via a tool called iView which will allow users to access the quarterly timeseries and to manipulate and extract data.

Data for April 2013 to September 2017 is already available by CCG within iView. Data for April 2008 to March 2013 is available by Primary Care Trust (PCT) within iView, see link below.

In line with the Making Public Data Public initiative, the data for October to December 2017 is also being made available as a comma separated values (csv) file. The structure of the file is:
Area Team
BNF Chapter
BNF Section
Actual Cost
Net Ingredient Cost

Note that the column headings may differ from the iView files as this is an extract from ePACT (service provided by NHS Prescription Services).
The data in the .csv file and in iView data contain the old NHS Area Teams. NHS Digital has also grouped the non-CCG 'Cost Centres' that were included in the data into a single category. For further detail, please see the link 'Methodological Change Note' in the Related Links section below.
