Prescriptions Dispensed in the Community, Statistics for England - 1996-2006

This bulletin covers all prescriptions that were dispensed in England by community pharmacists, appliance contractors and dispensing doctors. Items prescribed by GPs form the majority but dentists' prescriptions and prescriptions written in hospital or a Community Health Trust are also included, provided they were dispensed by a community pharmacist. The bulletin shows the headline cost (net ingredient cost) of medicines before the deduction of discount or charges paid and therefore does not represent the actual cost to the NHS, however many overall messages are very similar. Details of all items prescribed, including costs were published in The Information Centre's Prescription Cost Analysis publication on 20 April 2007.
