Every month, the NHS in England publishes anonymised data about the drugs prescribed by GPs. But the raw data files are large and unwieldy, with more than 600 million rows. We're making it easier for GPs, managers and everyone to explore - supporting safer, more efficient prescribing.
Got a tricky query for the data? We can provide custom extracts, we know the data well, and we’re keen to collaborate with academics and clinicians. Get in touch to find out more.
