Dear Highland NHS Board,

I am requesting some statistics regarding the drugs used to treat prisoners with psychiatric disorders in HMP Inverness. I am doing this under the Freedom of Information Act.

The information I am after is:
1. A list of drug names used to treat anxiety, depression, psychosis and other psychiatric disorders in HMP Inverness.
2. The number of prisoners currently prescribed the above drugs on the 01/05/2018 and on this same date for the preceding 6 years.
3. The figure for the number of prisoners accommodated in HMP Inverness for the above dates.
4. The number of prisoners that were prescribed more than one of the above listed drugs for the dates requested above.

I hope this is easy enough to digest and you are able to provide me with the needed information. I would like this information in .xls form.

Please make me aware if anything needs clarifying.

Yours faithfully,
Sean Finnan
