Request Reference: 8843 Request Date: 21 Oct 2019
Request: My name is [Name Redacted] and I am a 4th Year Pharmacy student in UCL. I am currently doing a research project with my supervisor. The project is about the acceptability and substitution of paediatric formulation. I was wondering if you have data on the total number of prescriptions that were written for children in 2018 and how many of these included antibiotics. [On 11 November 2019 you clarified the following:]1. Children would refer to those under 16 years old. 2. I would gladly appreciate if I could get the total figure. 3. If possible, I would only like the data for antibiotics only and not from the BNF code as the BNF code states Anti-infectives which includes data of anti-viral medication which I do not require.
