Request: reference FOI-058999 Hello, I would like to make a FOI request to access the figures on how many women have been given prescriptions of Cerelle since 2013 up until January 2019. I would like to know the numbers of women who were originally on Cerazette, and who were switched to Cerelle, and also the numbers of women who were prescribed cerelle for the first time. I would like there to be a distinction between these two categories ideally. If the data is only available from a certain part of the country then this will also be helpful for me, for example X amount of women in London were prescribed Cerelle instead of the larger task of finding the data for the whole of England. It is most important for me to find out how many women were prescribed Cerelle after originally being on Cerazette. I will use these numbers to calculate how much has been saved by this prescription change as part of a University module which explores possible side effects of Cerelle a lot of women have complained of. I would like the information to be emailed to this email address. My name is Hannah Crowe, and I am a student at London South Bank University. Thank you for taking the time to read this! Kind regards, [Name Redacted]
