A further 35 drugs have been included to the ‘discount not deducted’ (DND) list for which the discount deduction scale will no longer apply from April 2021.

The latest move follows the applications made by the PSNC to the Department of Health and Social Care (DH) and the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) to include the products in the DND list.

The new entries will take the total number of products granted DND status over the past one year to over 300.
