Proposal To Modify Contracting Arrangements Every year PHARMAC invites tenders for the supply of certain medicines to DHB hospitals and/or to community pharmacies in New Zealand. This year, they are also seeking feedback on a proposed new approach to competitive procurement. NZNO warmly invites your feedback on PHARMAC’s proposal to introduce Principal Supply Status (rather than Sole Supply Status or Hospital Supply Status). Principal Supply Status would allow PHARMAC the flexibility to fund alternative brands in the community. For further information about the proposal, and the areas that PHARMAC particularly wants feedback on, please refer here. Please send feedback to PolicyAnalysts@nzno.org.nz by 21 August 2020.
