Abstract

The All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG) has endorsed the National Prescribing Indicators (NPIs) as a means of promoting safe and cost-effective prescribing since 2003. NPIs have historically focused on primary care prescribing; in 2015 a set of secondary care NPIs were developed by the All Wales Prescribing Advisory Group (AWPAG) and launched by AWMSG for use in 2016–2017. This report contains data relating to the primary and secondary care NPIs for the first quarter of 2016–2017.
