Request: 1) How many leg bags and catheters prescribed in Halton HWB were dispensed in the last 3 months of 2018 by pharmacies in Halton HWB? 2) How many leg bags and catheters prescribed in Halton HWB were dispensed in the last 3 months of 2018 by Dispensing Appliance Contractors outside of Halton HWB? I do not require figures by pharmacy, just a sum total for the 34 pharmacies in Halton HWB, and then figures for items prescribed in Hatlon HWB, but were dispensed by DACs in England. [on the 29 July 2019 you clarified] In response to clarifying my questions: 1) Please provide data for items prescribed by Halton CCG. 2) OCS codes from link you sent: FFE52 FX408 FKX94 FVK97 FWD06 FCR04 FMJ48 FYV11 FEH76 FFJ49 FWX65 FVE45 FCT70 FEV08 FA414 FAP30 FGN94 FR844 FK419 FP895 FFG82 FPM89 FT619 FTW03 FJA60 FRJ72 FXV78 FAG38 FMJ67 FEX76 FJ621 FV661 FF559 FQ403 FQF13 FRE44 FMA99 FXD72 FEE80 FJY10 FXL15 FV013 FXJ61 FEK41 FFR46 FHT09 FWQ86 FDX88 FFK41 FAW89 FCL67 FH435 FMK48 FK878 Some pharmacies appear to have two codes for the same address. If the OCS code does not have any data, please ignore. Please provide a sum total, I do not require data broken down to each individual pharmacy. 3)I would like data for items where ‘Leg Bag’ is specified in the product name and where the coding structure allows you to identify leg bags.
