VPAS expired at the end of 2023 – are you ready for VPAG?

In this exciting 90-minute masterclass for LSAA and EMIG members, our stellar panel will provide expert comment and guidance on the new Voluntary Scheme for Branded Medicines Pricing, Access and Growth news to an industry desperate for clarity.

Although the UK Government and ABPI announced an agreement upon heads of terms in November, it’s clear this is a significant change for the pricing and reimbursement of branded medicines in the UK. Are you prepared for this paradigm shift in the way pharma views reimbursement?

 Key Learning Objectives:

  1. What is VPAG and how is it meant to operate?
  2. Why is the scheme controversial?
  3. Understand how the payment percentage is set
  4. Is it working for industry?
  5. Is it working for the NHS?
  6. What is the future of the scheme?
