Optimising the NHS – How will medicines be valued in integrated systems?

Optimising the NHS: How will medicines be valued in integrated systems?

How will medicines be valued in the newly integrated world of the NHS? What are the risks and benefits of a single national formulary? What else is changing? And what does this mean for market access?

Ellen Rule (Programme Director of the Gloucestershire Integrated Care System [ICS] and Director of Transformation and Service Redesign, Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group [CCG]) joined Tom Clarke (Director, Mtech Access) to explore all this and more in our live webinar on Friday 22nd October at 2.00 pm.

In our October #WhispersWordsofWisdom webinar, Tom Clarke and Ellen Rule discussed the key points highlighted in her recent proposals ‘The systematisation of medicines optimisation: Why medicines optimisation is a priority for integrated care systems and how it can be improved’, including:

  • The risks and benefits of a single national formulary and what this means for market access
  • How to support system and local networks to implement pan-ICS approaches to medicines optimisation
  • How industry can distinguish their product in this new world where systems become automated to substitute generics and biosimilars for branded medicines

Ellen and Tom discussed the implications of this paper, and the broader context of value in integrated care.

Ellen has worked in the NHS since 2003, holding a variety of senior positions in commissioning and provider organisations, spanning service redesign, assurance, contracting, operational management, and strategic planning roles. She also understands the challenges of HEOR, having achieved a masters in Health Economics and Policy. She also sits on two national committees for NICE.

We are excited to welcome Ellen to the Whispers’ Words of Wisdom webinar series.

This webinar forms part of our monthly Whispers’ Words of Wisdom series, in which we have in-depth, comprehensive conversations with senior colleagues from the NHS. We explore what their immediate priorities are, what they see as the greatest challenges currently faced by the NHS, and how the NHS might respond to these challenges.
