Data, from the NHS Business Services Authority for January and February 2019, suggest that three National Health Service prescriptions were dispensed for unlicensed cannabis-based products for medicinal use in primary care in England during this time. Additionally, the NHS Business Services Authority data report that 10 private prescriptions were dispensed for unlicensed cannabis-based products for medicinal use in January and February 2019.
Unlike NHS primary care where all dispensed prescriptions are processed centrally, this is not the case for secondary care. This information is collected by a third party and not routinely published.
