Understanding prescribing data

Maximise the potential of prescribing data analysis


Use NHS data to drive efficiency and growth for your healthcare business

Prescribing data from NHS GP practices across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland enable us to explore patterns and trends like never before. Used well, these datasets have the power to improve your performance in a number of ways. For example, they can:

  • Enable pharma and medical device companies to analyse trends and regional variations to ensure targeted marketing campaigns
  • Track competitor performance down to pack level at an affordable price
  • Track usage of generic vs branded drugs
  • Track local usage vs direct/wholesaler sales to better understand parallel trade and private prescribing
  • Allow GPs, practice managers and CCGs to scrutinise their efficiency, and monitor their performance against national or regional trends
  • Measure prescribing data against NICE guidelines


Tailored data analysis support for the public and private sectors

Need help interpreting the wealth of prescribing data that’s now available? CSL has the expertise to support your team. You’ll liaise directly with a UK based consultant, rather than an account manager, meaning there’ll always be a speedy answer when you need it. Whether you work with us on a short- or long-term basis, you’ll receive the same level of service and unparalleled know-how.

You might also be interested in our Rx Alerts service. Available on laptop, iPad and smartphone, this app takes the NHS primary care prescribing data and delivers key insights directly to your sales, marketing and supply chain teams.

We’ve worked with these statistics for many years now, and we never tire of discovering new and fascinating findings that can flag issues before they become a problem, and identify new opportunities.
