Who is going to pay for software and hardware changes in healthcare institutions, pharmacy and wholesaler systems – and how much will it cost?

< Back

Each healthcare institution, pharmacy and wholesaler will need to purchase the equipment required to enable it to scan the unique identifier and undertake verification and decommissioning. This will require the development of software to link through to the repository system via software changes and/or stand-alone systems depending on how systems are configured, and the support provided by your software supplier.

The UK Medicines Verification System is fully funded by pharmaceutical manufacturers & parallel distributors and is provided free of charge for end users, there are no costs to connect.
