Ghost-branded generics are generic items which have unintentionally been prescribed with a manufacturer name. For example, Naratriptan 2.5mg Tablets is the correct generic name; a ghost-branded version is Naratriptan 2.5mg Tablets (Teva UK Limited). When an item is prescribed generically, the dispenser is reimbursed at the price in the Drug Tariff; but when a manufacturer is stated, the reimbursement price is usually more expensive.

This is a list of all generic items where the price paid has differed significantly from the Drug Tariff price. We estimate NHS South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula could have saved at least £ in December 2023 by avoiding ghost-branded generics.
This is a new, experimental feature. We'd love to hear your feedback .
