National Prescribing Indicators 2018-2019

Prescribing indicators are used to highlight therapeutic priorities for NHS Wales and compare the way in which different prescribers and organisations use particular medicines or groups of medicines. Prescribing indicators should be evidence-based, clear, easily understood and allow health boards, primary care clusters, GP practices and prescribers to compare current practice against an agreed standard of quality.
