Explore 6 years of of NHS prescribing data. We’re helping to make prescribing safer and more cost-effective.
Every month, the NHS publishes data about the medicines prescribed by GPs across the country. The data is anonymised, but it’s still very detailed – over 600 million rows. This is overwhelming: it’s hard to see anything in the raw data.
With OpenPrescribing, we’re making it easy to monitor prescribing trends, spot unusual patterns, and see who is prescribing what in the NHS.
We’ve built tools for GPs, medicines managers and NHS staff to identify where there are improvements and savings to be made. We’re also happy to generate bespoke data extracts, so get in touch!
