I write in response to your Official Information Act request, dated 27 September 2018. You requested the following information:

Can you please provide information on Schedule H budget spent on pharmaceuticals as a dollar ($) value for each of the 2015/16 and 2017/18 financial years, and specify if each value provided is a net or a gross value (i.e. excluding or including rebates).

  • If it includes rebates, then please also provide the $ value of the rebates, as a separate $ value too.
  • Please clarify if the value includes the Pharmaceutical Cancer Treatments (PCT), and if it does, then please provide the value of the PCT component too.
