Event details

CHE Policy Forums

In 2021-22, prescription medicines cost the NHS in England £17.2 billion. Current policies, like NICE technology appraisal and the Voluntary Scheme, aim to incentivise innovation while ensuring access and affordability. This session explores recent research suggesting that prioritising long-term population health as the central objective of pharmaceutical pricing policy can help policymakers determine fair prices and appropriately distribute value between patients and pharmaceutical companies.

Beth Woods in discussion with  Keith Derbyshire, former Chief Economist and Chief Analyst at the Department for Health and Social Care, and Adrian Towse of Office for Health Economics.
