HSJ/CHKS interactive prescribing data tools

Our interactive data tools, created by healthcare services company CHKS, enable you to compare prescribing rates and costs for your PCT for paracetamol and asthma treatment.

The tools – based on information on GP prescribing published by the NHS Information Centre – enable you to see the relationships between prescribing rate and population, and whether your PCT is in line with expected values given its population.
