Request Reference: 8457 Request Date: 12 Apr 2019
Request: Hello, I am looking to find out the total number of antidepressant items prescribed and the total number of patients receiving at least 1 antidepressant item in each financial year 2015-16; 2016-17; 2017-18 as well as the latest data from the year 2018-19 (Please specify the latest data provided, I understand it is to February 2019). For each of the above years, I would like to know the following: Number of antidepressant items prescribed to each age group (groups as listed on this table ‘Antidepressant Prescribing’ https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/prescription-data/prescribing-data/antidepressant-prescribing ) o Within each age group the number of items prescribed of each Chemical within BNF Chapter 4.3 (Antidepressants) Number of antidepressant items prescribed in each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), broken down by age group Number of patients receiving at least 1 antidepressant item in each age group (groups as listed on this table ‘Antidepressant Prescribing’ https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/prescription-data/prescribing-data/antidepressant-prescribing ) o Within each age group the number of patients prescribed at least 1 antidepressant item of each Chemical within BNF Chapter 4.3 Number of patients receiving at least 1 antidepressant item in each CCG, broken down by age group For all of the above please provide the exact figures, not a rounded number. If any of this is too wide or falls outside of the 18 hour limit please focus on the age range and CCG data over the Chemical items – or if anything else is unclear please advise me on how to narrow my request. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions or to clarify this question. Many thanks, [Name Redacted]
