Dear Fife NHS Board,
For 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 what was the expenditure on primary care and secondary care prescribing?
For both primary care and secondary care, how much of this expenditure was on statin and other lipid-lowering medication and on diabetes-related medication?
Could you please give a breakdown of expenditure on the specific diabetes-related medications involved? eg insulin, metformin etc.

Yours faithfully,

George Winter
