Position statement regarding price hikes of medicines

The Pituitary Foundation does not condone nor support price hikes relating to any medicines. The costs of medicines are of concern to patients and the NHS alike, and there needs to be robust governance around the pricing of medicines.

The Pituitary Foundation also supports awareness being raised around price hikes of medicines so that governance can be improved. We feel that fair pricing of medicines is important to ensure patients have access to the medicines they need.

Unjust price hikes have damaging consequences to the NHS and cause stress to patients who can see there may be difficulties in continuing to receive an essential medication that they rely on.
