PharmaTimes Directors' Club - Overview



Next PDC meeting:

The next PDC meeting will be: 'Does economising in medicines compromise patient safety?' This is your chance to book your place for 2 July, 12.30 to 4.00pm at Dexter House, Royal Mint Court, London.

To understand the issues from the perspective of the Pharma industry, MHRA, NHS procurement specialists, the patient, NHS England and legal experts make sure you attend this lively PDC forum, when the speakers will be encouraging and inviting discussion with the audience.

In the name of saving on expenditure, some would say that the NHS payers are riding roughshod over the established regulatory procedures and compliance.

Is it right that the industry is asked to play to one set of rules and the payers another? The latest ruling when a judge found a CCG guilty of rejecting NICE advice, is a positive sign that payers must watch their step and will not be given carte blanche because of budgeting issues.

Is it fair to Pharma?

Is it safe for patients?

To hear each side's argument please book here to attend.

The meeting takes place at Dexter House, Royal Mint Court, Tower Hill, London, on 2 July (12.30pm to 4.00pm).

Please do join us.
