Community Dispensing


NHS National Services Scotland ISD Scotland & NHS National Services Scotland


The ISD prescribing team, in collaboration with the Scottish Government have recently began looking at ways of using routinely collected primary care prescribing data to identify patients being dispensed multiple medications.

At present the prescribing team are working to produce standard reports, which will be made available to authorised PIS users and will enable them to run summary and comparator reports.
