Request Reference: 7531 Request Date: 27 Feb 2018
Request: I would like to make a freedom of information request regarding antibiotic prescribing in children between 0-5 years of age, in 8 GP practices in the post area of OX4, Oxford, between December 2016- December 2017. If possible I would like: The number of GP consultations for children under 5 years of age The number of consultations resulting in antibiotic prescription The conditions the antibiotics were prescribed for The number of antibiotic prescriptions for each age group- Under 1 year, 1-2 year old, 2-3 year old, 3-4 year old, 4-5 year old [On 9 March 2018 you clarified the following:] 1. Please provide a list of the GP Practices the data is required for. Please see attached list 2. Do you require everything under Antibiotic BNF 0501 accumulated or broken down to presentation level. Broken down to presentation level would be helpful 3. Do you require the data monthly or accumulated for the time period given. Monthly data over the identified time period 4. I note that the age groups in your request overlap. For example a 2 year old would appear in the groups 1-2 and 2-3. Please therefore amend the groupings. Would you prefer 1-3 and then 4-5? I would like if possible to have children grouped per year but do see your point- can dates of births be provided then children can be grouped appropriately? If not as you suggest would be acceptable
