The often complex processes and objectives behind the UK Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (PPRS) are explained in a new publication from the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI).
The PPRS voluntary system of price regulation has been in existence since 1957 and is renegotiated every five to six years - enabling easier planning of health services and stability for industry. Understanding the 2005 PPRS provides at-a-glance statistics and background to the latest agreement, the mechanics behind how it works and prospects for the future.
Understanding the 2005 PPRS is a useful introduction to the workings of the scheme including all the key figures about the pharmaceutical market in the UK.
