Retail Pharmacies Market Study Evaluation

This report commissioned by The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) evaluates the impact of the OFT’s 2003 market study on the retail pharmacies market. The OFT appointed DotEcon to assess the effects of the Government’s decision in 2005 to relax the ‘control of entry’ regulations in response to the study’s recommendations. Our report reviews the impact on access, prices, choice and quality of service in the market and the monetary impact on businesses and taxpayers.

The report can be downloaded here (click here for the Annexes), or obtained from the OFT’s website.
