The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has today published the first list of drug price concessions for June.
The timing of the list's release (below), published by the PSNC, continues the theme of late monthly announcements by the DHSC which has created difficulties for contractors as they try to plan their businesses.
In February PSNC chief executive Simon Dukes said community pharmacy’s negotiator was working with the DHSC to create a “more responsive” process that will see concessionary prices announced much earlier each month.
