National Prescribing Indicators 2017-2018: Quarterly reports

For 2017–2018, there are 14 primary care NPIs focusing on seven areas of prescribing and the reporting of adverse events (Yellow Cards). Four of the indicators – high strength inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), opioid patches, anticholinergic burden, and NSAIDs and CKD – are new for 2017–2018.

There are also three secondary care NPIs focusing on three areas of prescribing.

On a quarterly basis, a report is compiled analysing the performance of each health board against the current set of NPIs.
