Public consultation on disclosure of industry payments to the healthcare sector

By September 8, 2023No Comments

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has launched a public consultation on disclosure of industry payments to the healthcare sector.

The consultation seeks views on the possible introduction of new secondary legislation. This legislation would place a duty on manufacturers and commercial suppliers of medicines, medical devices and borderline substances to report details of the payments and other benefits they provide to healthcare professionals and organisations. The purpose of the proposal is to increase transparency of the relationships between industry and the healthcare sector, to enhance patient trust and protect the impartiality of clinical decision-making. The consultation also seeks views on alternatives to regulation.

The consultation will be open for 6 weeks. More information on this consultation can be found here.
