2010 Annual Report
Pharmaceutical & Laboratory Test Utilisation


Dear Collegue

Welcome to your 2010 bpacnz annual report. This report provides you with an overview of your patterns of prescribing and laboratory test ordering for the year to March 2010.

A number of comparisons are made throughout the report which we hope will provide you with the opportunity to reflect on the way in which you use pharmaceuticals and laboratory tests in your day-to-day practice. This information may be useful for considering potential areas for audit, identifying learning opportunities, and initiating peer group discussions.

This report includes the following information:

  • General summary
    This includes a comparison of your volume of prescriptions, and laboratory tests between 2009 and 2010, as well as an overview of the pharmaceuticals and laboratory tests you use most often.
  • Key clinical messages
    This provides information specific to you and provides an opportunity for revisiting key messages relevant to everyday prescribing and testing.
  • Details of pharmaceutical and laboratory tests
    A comprehensive list of all pharmaceuticals and laboratory tests requested by you over the report time period. To allow for comparison, your figures are supplied, along with the national average per GP. Note, the ‘average GP’ does approximately 100-110 consultations per week.

We hope you find this report useful, and would welcome your feedback
