About this release
Public Health Scotland has released NHSScotland prescribing data for April 2022 in two formats - practice level Open Data and an interactive dashboard.
Open Data files enable independent analysis of NHSScotland prescribing data. Information is shown for each practice and by individual drug. 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?
Monthly Prescribing Activity Data can be found on the Scottish Health and Social Care open data portal and an interactive dashboard can be found via the PHS Prescribing Webpages. The former ISD Scotland website also presents monthly aggregated summary statistics.
Further information is available from the Prescribing webpages.
