Savings on Biosimilars

The NHS is starting to achieve significant savings by switching to biosimilars. https://improvement.nhs.uk/news-alerts/nhs-saves-324-million-year-switching-better-value-medicines/
Meanwhile we are knocking a few cent of the reference price of generic drugs in the hope that it will somehow generate millions in savings with no impact on continuity of supply.

If I didn’t know better I would say that the Dept of Health and the Government are frightened of Big Pharma.
