OFT: Does PPRS meet its objectives? –Secure the provision of safe and effective medicines for the NHS at reasonable prices –Promote a strong and profitable pharmaceutical industry capable of such sustained research and development expenditure as should lead to the future availability of new and improved medicines –Encourage the efficient and competitive development and supply of medicines to pharmaceutical markets in this and other countries

Ministerial Industry Strategy Group Long Term Leadership Strategy Better Regulation Medicines Uptake PartnershipEurope Government support for NHS/Industry partnerships Diagnosis and proposals to address low/variable uptake of new medicines
LTLS - Timeframe Progress Report to MISG – 9 February 2006 –Work Programme for 2006 Agreed Progress on Europe and Regulatory Groups – 18 May 2006 Final Report to MISG – 1 November 2006 Publication February 2007
Post Code Lottery Inequitable access to medicines/treatments Political and Medical problem Three HTA systems magnifies problem UK lags behind continental Europe in uptake Industry NHS Partnerships offer some solutions
Long Term Conditions are a principal driver of healthcare cost Disease AreaNational Prevalence 2005/2006 Asthma5.8 per cent Cancer0.7 per cent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease1.4 per cent Coronary Heart Disease3.6 per cent Diabetes3.6 per cent Epilepsy0.6 per cent Hypertension12.0 per cent Hypothyroidism2.4 per cent Left Ventricular Dysfunction0.4 per cent Mental Health0.6 per cent Stroke1.6 per cent The Information Centre, NHS Unplanned and expensive inpatient episodes
Pharmaceuticals are part of the solution to better long term condition management In all the above areas, pharmaceutical research has resulted in –New treatments for control or reversal –New formulations for easier/faster administration, better compliance –Improved tolerance, fewer complications
Actual prevalence of disease No contact with system In contact but no related complaint investigated Complaint investigated but not correctly diagnosed Diagnosed but untreated Treated but not optimally Treated optimally 100% Public Health Programmes Find and treat targets incentives Diagnostic tools Therapy decision support More qualified clinicians NICE guidance reinforced Find and Treat Programmes could make a major impact
Implications for fieldforces Flexibility in resourcing Collaborate AND Compete Source of knowledge and skill (not just money!) The patient must benefit
In Summary Longer Term Industry/Government relationships give room for optimism Short term environment likely to become more negative More pressure to demonstrate value for money of medicines
