Please note the Prescribing by Dentists report will no longer be published separately. The data is already included in the Prescription Cost Analysis (PCA) publication and from April 2016 will continue to be published with a separate csv file as part of the PCA publication. Detailed analysis of the data will be included in the Prescriptions Dispensed in the Community report in July.
This report provides an overview of NHS prescriptions written by dentists and dispensed in the community. It is based on data supplied by NHS Prescription Services, a division of the NHS Business Services Authority.
The report looks at national-level data for 2014 in terms of prescription items and Net Ingredient Cost (NIC) and looks at changes since 2005.
