Primary Care Rebate Schemes

Primary Care Rebate Schemes

Primary care rebate schemes are contractual arrangements offered by pharmaceutical companies, or third party companies, which offer retrospective financial rebates to the CCG on GP prescribing expenditure for particular branded medicine(s). The availability of a scheme does not influence the inclusion of specific medicines in care pathways or formularies.  

Both East Lancashire CCG and BwD CCG are members of PrescQIPP and refer to the reviews undertaken by PrescQIPP’s Pharmaceutical Industry Scheme Governance Review Board (PISGRB).  See https://www.prescqipp.info/primary-care/tag/rebates for more details.
