Monograph
January 2019

Debate about funding has highlighted the difficulty of persuading sceptics that the NHS is a good use of public finance. There is a widely held view – particularly in finance ministries and some sections of the media – that health systems such as the NHS are ‘black holes’, constantly demanding increased funding without concomitant returns to society.

OHE has published its report to the Charity Commission for the year 2017, its first full year as a registered charity.

OHE Lunchtime Seminar with Dr. Aslam Anis, The University of British Columbia. The seminar will discuss the impact of the pan-Canadian Pharmaceutical Alliance “tiered pricing” framework (a flexible 'price-cap' regulation) on generic entry, the resulting drug expenditure levels from a drug plans’ perspective and the implications of price-capping policies on drug shortages.
