Pharmacy and appliance contractor dispensing data

A report detailing monthly information dispensed by Pharmacy and Appliance Contractors in England which includes Advanced Services declared. View our Pharmacy and appliance contractor dispensing data caveats (Word: 241KB).

The December 2023 pharmacy and appliance contractor dispensing data has run again to include a breakdown of Contraception Service consultations by Ongoing and Initiation. Due to a technical issue, the number of Contraception Service consultations previously displayed was not accurate. The new report has the correct values.

The February 2024 files have been replaced due to amendments to the number of items.

The March 2024 files have been replaced. This is due to amendments made to the figures regarding Number of Appliance Use Reviews (AURs) conducted in user's home.
