CCG Prescribing Data - July to September 2015

Details

This release contains data for the quarter July to September 2015, by Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Data for April 2013 to June 2015 is already available by CCG. Data for April 2008 to March 2013 is available by Primary Care Trust (PCT), see link below.

The data is 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 April to June 2015 is also being made available as a comma separated variable (csv) file. The structure of the file is:

Quarter

Area Team

CCG

BNF Chapter

BNF Section

Items

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 now contain Area Team. The HSCIC has also made another change, grouping the ‘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.
