Request: Hi I am now submitting a formal freedom of information request as below: 1. I am looking to find out the number of prescription items of SSRI antidepressants (specified drug substance names listed below), made to children aged 17 and under for full financial year 2017/18. Please can the data be broken down by age group 0-6, 7-12 and 13-17? Citalopram Hydrobromide Citalopram Hydrochloride Escitalopram Fluoxetine Hydrochloride Fluvoxamine Maleate Paroxetine Hydrochloride Sertraline Hydrochloride 2. Similarly, but distinctly, can you tell me the total number of patients who were prescribed SSRI antidepressants (described as above in question 1) aged 17 and under for full financial year 2017/18. Please can the data be broken down by age group 0-6, 7-12 and 13-17? Many thanks, [Name Redacted] [On 27 June 2018 you clarified that you would like the following criteria to be applied to the information] Data for all three financial years, basing the patient counts on the NHS number as we capture from the prescription image. This would allow the requestor to replace the information they previously received if they were planning on combining/comparing all three financial years.
