REQUEST FOR INFORMATION

Thank you for your email of 22 June 2020 requesting information about Aptamil Feed Thickener and Nutilis. You asked for the total number of PHARMAC funded prescriptions annually for both products. 

Your request has been considered pursuant to the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA).
