Open Access Materials

We recognise the importance of sharing best-practice in optimising medicines use and a selection of materials are therefore available as open access resources.  Any data included in files available from this area of the website has been anonymised and subscriber CCGs should log-in for access to their data analysis.

Components from three of our suite of eight key outputs are available here:
