Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (PPRS)

The 2014 PPRS was a non-contractual scheme that was replaced on 1 January 2019 by the 2019 Voluntary Scheme for Branded Medicines Pricing and Access (Voluntary Scheme). The parties to this agreement were the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), acting on behalf of the health departments of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI). The purpose of the scheme was to ensure that safe and cost-effective medicines were available on the NHS in England.
