Drugs price scandal
NEW LABOUR has bowed to pressure from a major drugs company and increased the proposed maximum price for commonly used drugs by 500 percent. Drugs giant Norton Healthcare threatened to stop production of generic drugs-which, like aspirin, are not usually sold under a brand name-unless the government upped its proposed price cap.
So the NHS will now have to pay 37p instead of 7p for a pack of 28 standard sized aspirin tablets.
