Pharmaceutical pills

The Department of Health and Social Care (DH) and the National Assembly for Wales have agreed concessionary prices for a further eight items for April 2018 prescriptions.

An initial 13 items received concessionary prices on April 20, followed by a further 15 items in a separate announcement last week.

Commenting on the latest prices, the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee said last Friday (April 27) that it "is still working with the DH to agree further concessionary prices on other drugs reported to be unavailable at the stated April 2018 drug tariff price".
