Request Reference: 7610 Request Date: 27 Mar 2018
Request: I rang you a few minutes ago. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me. I would like to find out some information on the number of prescriptions dispensed of drugs within the benzodiazepine family. I would like to know: Which drugs within the family are used by the NHS? The number of prescriptions of each of those drugs dispensed over the last five years, calendar or financial (however the data is held), nationally. The number of prescriptions of each of those drugs dispensed over the last five years within the south east (any dispenser with an address in Kent, East Sussex, or Brighton) [On 25 April 2018 you clarified the following:] I would prefer the number of items rather than the number of forms, if that is possible. Would it also be possible to provide the dosage? For example, 400mg of Alprazolam. The areas I am interested in are Q67, Kent and Medway, and Q68, Surrey and Sussex.
