New UK Price Deal To Save NHS £930m & Speed Up Access To Innovation

Executive Summary

The revised PPRS, which is expected to take effect at the beginning of 2019, will implement a 2% cap on the growth in sales of branded medicines to the NHS that should result in substantial savings on medicines spending. It also provides for faster NICE appraisals for non-cancer drugs, and more flexibility in commercial discussions between companies and the health department.
