Detail

In February 2010, the Department of Health commissioned a report to ascertain both the income derived from, and the costs incurred by, a dispensing GP practice in providing dispensing (pharmaceutical) services in England, and thus to arrive at an estimate of the overall profit for such services.  The final report resulting from this work is available below.

The findings from this report will be used to inform future General Medical Services contract negotiations. (http://www.dh.gov.uk/prod_consum_dh/groups/dh_digitalassets/documents/digitalasset/dh_128817.pdf)
