Why it matters: Desogestrel is available as both generic tablets and as a number of brands. For a time some of these brands were cheaper than the generic tablets, so CCGs started to use them. However the price of the generic has now fallen and is the cheapest option to prescribe.
Description: Total quantity of branded desogestrel as a proportion of total quantity of all desogestrel.
CCGs are ordered by mean percentile over the past six months. Each chart shows the results for the individual CCG, plus deciles across all CCGs in the NHS in England.
