About this release
This release by Public Health Scotland (PHS) presents data for items prescribed in Scotland and reimbursed by the NHS, for September and October 2023. The data is in two formats - Open Data and an interactive dashboard.
Open Data files enable independent analysis of NHS Scotland prescribing data. Information is shown for each practice and by individual drug for items prescribed in Scotland and reimbursed by the NHS. In response to feedback from users we have produced a prescribing dashboard to allow exploration of the Open Data file. Four interactive views are available:
- What are the highest cost therapeutic areas for prescriptions in the community?
- How do individual GP Practices contribute to overall GP Practice prescribing?
- What is the variation in Prescribing among the biggest GP practices?
- Where are the most prescriptions being written?
The next release of this publication will be on 12 March 2024.
