Database of Medicine Prices 05 May 2018

IMPORTANT: This dataset is probably truncated to only the first 1000 rows of data and is not complete. Only use to familiarise yourself with the dataset. Please get in touch if you would like help finding the full dataset.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers must sell their medicine to pharmacies at the single exit price (SEP), and are not allowed to subtract discounts or add levies. The SEP has to be approved by the Department of Health, and is then published on the Medicine Pricing Registry (MPR) website in the ‘Database of Medicine Prices’. This database is updated monthly with approved changes to pricing or other medicine details.

Note that this dataset has not been cleaned.
