In a World First, Asda Announces 'Not for Profit' Price on All Cancer Treatment Drugs
Date:5/20/2010

becomes very real and very personal.

"I'm very proud of the work our pharmacy team are doing to lower prices."

Additionally, Asda is working with suppliers to negotiate further discounts on the trade price of privately prescribed cancer drugs, with any savings passed directly on to customers as soon as they are available.  

According to research by Asda, 63 per cent of people are unaware that private prescription prices vary between pharmacies, with the majority of people (76 per cent) going to the same pharmacy to pick up prescriptions. A staggering 92 per cent of people surveyed have never compared the prices of private prescription drugs.

This announcement follows Asda's recent 'not for profit' commitment on IVF drugs, which saved consumers up to 800 pounds per cycle.  For over a decade, Asda has lobbied on behalf of consumers to widen the availability of pharmacy services and products, which has successfully seen the demise of the Resale Price Maintenance (RPM), which allowed drug manufacturers to fix pharmacy prices artificially high.

The 'not-for-profit' commitment will be available in store from Monday May 24th, 2010.
