Incorrect prescriptions over the last 5 years in England

Incorrect prescriptions in England over the last 5 years

I did a Freedom of Information request in October 2013 and requested from NHS England some information on incorrect prescriptions. I was provided with some data over a five year period which highlighted this information.  This is my first infographics and it shows the most popular reason for why the prescription was incorrect.
One of the main reasons was that the incorrect drug or medicine was given.

What I learnt from this?

The main thing I learnt was that infographics can really enhance a story and bring it to life. I also learnt that it is critical you are specific with your FOI requests as NHS England came back quite a few times and asked for more information.

Thanks for reading!
