Dear Sir or Madam,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000/
Freedom of Information Act (Scotland) 2002.

I am currently undertaking research into Benzodiazepine use and
Ethnicity so Attached for your reference in the appendix of this
email is a list of the Benzodiazepines including 'Z'-drugs I am
interested in by chemical name and their brand name.

So please can you send me the following information.

Primarily I'm interested in:

1) The prescription information which you have pertaining to each
drug and corresponding to the ethnicity of the patient.

Please can you examine all in-patient prescription charts* in the
Trust and identify the patients who have prescribed, and their
ethnic origin.

Secondarily I would also be interested in their prescribed dosage.

and lastly their statistical age breakdown and gender (if possible)

nb: or However the data is stored, as most recent at a minimum
possible for at least for the past year

I am happy to have the above information provided to me in
electronic format (Either an excel sheet, word file or .pdf)
