This publication allows users to see how the use of prescribed diabetes medications and associated costs have changed over time, from April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2019. It contains a time series of statistics at the national level and one year of statistics at the GCC level in the form of diagrams, data tables and support comments.

Access to the ePACT2 system via an associated user ID is limited to a designated registered user. You cannot transmit access, passwords, usernames or login details to the ePACT2 system.

Changes in numbers over time should be interpreted in relation to changes in available drugs and their costs and changes in NHS practice.
