At meeting of the advisory board of the City Council discussed a situation with the prices of medicinal goods.
The representative of KP "Pharmacy" reported that with dollar rate growth prices of medicines sharply increased in Ukraine, and on separate medical preparations to 90%. Same became the reason of increase of demand for the drugs made in Ukraine. Now the enterprise has 140 points of realization of medicines, and before them was more than 400. And in rural areas 2-3 drugstores are liquidated.
Representatives of supervisory authorities consider that information on deliberate overestimate of the price inNikolaev drugstores, to put it mildly, doesn't answer reality. The carried-out checks showed that in local drugstores of an extra charge made 23-28% and only on some drugs to 35%.
The prices are formed generally by wholesale suppliers of drugs of Kiev, Odessa and Dnepropetrovsk. With relative stabilization of dollar since February of the current year reduction of prices of medicines began. It is dictated, first of all, by decrease in purchasing power of the population.
On April 16 the Cabinet of Ministers approved the list of drugs the prices on which will regulate the state. For wholesale suppliers level of a margin won't exceed 12%, and for retail - 25%. It concerns about 3000 names of drugs from 8000 most actively acquired in Ukraine.
The truth druggists don't exclude option when "the care of the state" can result in deficiency of drugs.
Making comments on charges of some city doctors of existence of "kickbacks" to pharmaceutical points at hospitals, the deputy head of department of health care A. Prikhodko told that such facts demand official confirmation. However the population agrees to make out the complaint not always. Despite it fight against "unscrpulous" doctors is conducted. The professional, recommending to the patient means for treatment, always has to speak about alternative between purchase expensive, but more effective import preparations and rather cheap domestic лекартсвами.
