The Pricing & Reimbursement of Medicines in the United Kingdom – Understanding the pharmaceutical market in the healthcare system is an in-depth guide to the pricing and reimbursement mechanisms in the UK market, in particular the Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (PPRS) that came into force in January 2005.
The 70 page report clearly explains the structure of the healthcare system and the regulations and arrangements in place that provide the framework for setting medicine prices and gaining reimbursement through the state financed national health service (NHS). Attention is paid to the mechanisms that restrict spend on pharmaceuticals, including the role of the National Institute for Clinical Evidence (NICE) in England and its equivalent in Scotland. Finally, key current or forthcoming events that may affect the environment are identified and explained. Latest market figures are provided where possible.
