Please note: in the Excel spreadsheet found at the link entitled “Prescription Cost Analysis as Excel spreadsheet” above, the title originally read:- “Quarterly Prescription Cost Analysis: England. January to February 2011 - Data by individual preparation” This was incorrect and should have read: “Quarterly Prescription Cost Analysis: England. January to March 2011 - Data by individual preparation.”
A replacement version of the spreadsheet (v2) has now been provided with the corrected title (as at 14 July 2011). Note that the data in the original spreadsheet was for the period January to March 2011 and was therefore correct.
Quarterly Prescription Cost Analysis (PCA) provides details of the number of items and the net ingredient cost of all prescriptions dispensed in the community in England.
