17.45 - Panel Discussion: How Do We Fund Medicines That Healthcare Providers Can’t Afford?

Healthcare providers, including the NHS, cannot always afford to provide medicines to a growing population. Additionally, the drug discovery and development process is a long and an expensive. Pharmaceutical companies cannot always afford to reduce their prices whilst maintaining commercial viability. Is there another way that these costs can be absorbed such that patients can access medicines deemed too expensive under current provision?

This panel will explore the options of global funds, local procurement strategies and other funding opportunities to explore these options, in what is becoming an increasing problem both within the UK and worldwide.
