UK NHS Area Prescribing Committees (APC's) for England - March 2022

november 2021 APC Map

We've compiled a full England Vector Map consisting of the English NHS APC (Area Prescribing Committee) Map. Nov.21
Area Prescribing committees are groups of GP’s pharmacists and other key healthcare professionals that identify and promote the appropriate use of medicines across clusters of CCG’s.

Each boundary is made up of multiple CCG's and is individually editable. Purchasing this bundle of files would be useful for editing in adobe illustrator or powerpoint or some similar package then using that map in publications or presentations.

On this map we have grouped all the CCG's of England into their appropriate APC clusters. We've then dissolved the boundaries of each of those clusters and this gives us the geographical APC boundaries. These aren't official GIS NHS boundaries but more derived boundaries which we have created from the latest revision of the UK CCG Boundary map.

GIS Shapefiles

We can also supply the GIS .SHP shapefiles of all the APC boundaries as a whole or individually. These are the actual original GIS vector files with associated data tables attached to the shapefile hence the cost will need to be discussed depending on intended use. We can also supply the boundary files as KML or GEO-JSON files, Just get in touch and we'll work something our.

There are 266 Individual CCG areas Across England and these are clustered into the 67 APC Groups shown in our APC maps. We also include a basic excel spreadsheet showing which CCG belongs to which APC.

Above is a snapshot table taken from the actual spreadsheet.

Vector based graphics aren't the same as normal image files

vector raster comparison

Vector map image file formats are far better and more versatile than normal images when it comes to mapping. Raster image files are files with extensions such as .jpg, .gif, .png etc. Vector files are more like coloured drawings where every line, shape or piece of text is created using coordinates and attributes that make up complex images with code which can be edited after the image has been created.  A vector map can be opened in applications such as Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, Corel, Powerpoint and many other editing packages(some of which are free to download and use). The other major benefit of a vector file format is they can be scaled up to any size and they don’t become pixelated or lose any resolution. You could literally print it out the size of a bus and it would be as crisp as if it were printed at A4.

We can also supply A0 Laminated Prints of our APC - Area Prescribing Committee Map
We can print any of our maps at almost any size. If you need a laminated poster map, A4 printed maps, deskpads or something for the office wall including maps printed onto a whiteboard or magnetic board then we can  help.  We can create the maps you need and transfer them onto all kinds of printed media, faster and for a lot less cost than you might originally think.
