Abstract

For 2015–2016, there are 13 NPIs focusing on eight areas of prescribing and the reporting of adverse events (Yellow Cards). Two of the indicators, proton pump inhibitors and inhaled corticosteroids, are new for 2015–2016.  For those NPIs which were in place for 2014–2015, there was an overall improvement in Wales in line with the aim of each indicator with a threshold, compared to the equivalent quarter of the previous year (December 2014).
