Prices of Growth Hormone medicines prescribed in primary care in 2019, and numbers of patients for each

The request was successful.

Dear Business Services Organisation (Northern Ireland),

Could you tell me how many patients in primary care were prescribed the following medications (non-biosimilar and therefore more expensive) last year?

genotropin, humatrope, norditropin, nutropin Aq, saizen, zomacton

Second, how many patients in 2019 were prescribed the cheaper omnitrope?

Please could you also tell me the prices of the defined daily dose (DDD) of all these medicines?

Yours faithfully,

Joanna Lane
