HC Deb 22 March 1993 vol 221 c470W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much of the drugs budget is spent on multiple fees to pharmacists for diphasic and triphasic drugs; and how much would be saved if only one fee was paid.

Dr. Mawhinney

This information could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Fees paid to pharmacists form part of their remuneration. The Department is committed to simplifying the fee structure as part of its restructuring of pharmacists' remuneration.
