Private Controlled Drug Prescribers in England

$179 / year

This dataset comprises of current Private Controlled Drug Prescribers (PCDP) in England. It includes name and address information and identifying codes for Drug Prescribers working in England.


The Organization Data Service (ODS) is provided by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). It is responsible for the publication of all organization and practitioner codes and national policy and standards with regard to the majority of organization codes, and encompasses the functionality and services previously provided by the National Administrative Codes Service (NACS).

These code standards form part of the NHS data standards. The HSCIC is also responsible for the day-to-day operation of the ODS and for its overall development.

Data for General Medical Practices, General Medical Practitioners (GPs), Prescribing Cost Centres and Dispensaries are supplied by the NHS Prescription Services and are used to facilitate their remit to remunerate dispensing contractors and provide the NHS with financial, prescribing and drug information.

The fourth report from the Shipman Inquiry was published in July 2004. The report made a number of recommendations to strengthen the systems for prescribing of controlled drugs and for monitoring their movements from prescriber to dispenser to patient. In support of this, a practitioner code for Private Controlled Drug Prescribers (PCDPs) was introduced. The NHS Prescription Service is responsible for the coding and maintenance of the PCDPs. Each PCDP is linked to one Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG); this will be the responsible CCG although not necessarily related geographically. Private practices are not recorded.
