Dispensing by Contractor

The data covers prescriptions that are prescribed in Northern Ireland by GPs or Nurses (within a GP practice), that are subsequently dispensed by a community pharmacist, dispensing doctor or appliance supplier and are finally submitted to the Business Services Organisation (BSO) for payment and have been paid.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, publication of Dispensing by Contractor data on the BSO website and Open Data NI will be temporarily suspended following release of the February 2020 datasets. If possible, we will aim to publish backdated reports once the impact on business as usual processes and data quality are known
