ABSTRACT
The article presents the results of a British government report. The report, which was from the Office of Fair Trading, a body that protects consumers' interests in the United Kingdom, found that health services in the United Kingdom are overpaying approximately $980 million a year for prescription drugs. The report also found that many alternative products were available and should have been used by the health services for the treatment of several medical conditions including high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
