The number of individuals being prescribed drugs for Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for each of the financial years 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 with a male/female breakdown in each of the following) age brackets: o 0-5 o 6-17 o 18-24 o 25-34 o 35-44 o 45-54 o 55-64 o 65+ o All ages Please note that a patient should only be counted once, regardless of how many different ADHD drugs were prescribed or the volume of items in the requested periods. I wish to receive this information in electronic format, preferably in an Excel or csv file. If any portion of these records is withheld, please specify which specific statutory exemptions are being relied upon under the Act. Please describe each record withheld, including its date and reason for exemption. If you decide to withhold any record or part thereof I will expect all other non-exempt material to be returned to me. If you have any queries relating to this request, or if I can clarify any aspect of it, please feel free to contact me on the numbers provided below.

I think it''''s best if we proceed with: o All English prescribing and dispensing o Maximum age at time of prescribing during the year period Please note that I will be on holidays from September 8th to September 17th inclusive.
