Symposium - Pharmaceutical policies in the long run (11 Nov 2019, Merton College Oxford)
Symposium: Pharmaceutical policies in the long run: Reflections on 60th anniversary of the Hinchliffe Report
A symposium to mark the 60th anniversary of the Hinchliffe Report - a Government Committee tasked with examining the rise in pharmaceutical expenditure following the introduction of the NHS.
Its recommendations were far-reaching including:
• Improvements in the training of GPs to understand evidence regarding the use of new drugs and the economics of prescribing;
• Routinely conducting clinical trials to assess drugs and to publish results in an independent prescribers’ journal;
• Development of an expert body that would be informed by research on economic and social aspects of the NHS;
• An examination of the economics of drug development, marketing and pharmacy to ensure efficiency and equity in prescribing;
The purpose of the workshop is firstly to reflect on the report in order to understand the degree to which we face similar challenges today, and the degree to which we have been able to address these challenges. Secondly, if a Government was to commission a report to look at pharmaceutical expenditure today, what potential long-term recommendations could be made to address current challenges?
