King's Fund on the rising cost of medicines to the NHS

A briefing from the King's Fund looks at how much the health service spends on medicines, both generic and branded, based on publicly available data.

In recent years, spending on branded medicines has been constrained by the pharmaceutical price regulation scheme, the next phase of which is currently under negotiation. The briefing explores policies used to try to control growth in costs and the choices policy makers are likely to face in the future.
