In reference to Morningside Healthcare’s oral contraceptives (Levest®, Cimizt®, Lizinna® and Zelleta®), Dr Farook Al-Azzawi. Consultant Gynaecologist at Leicester Royal Infirmary said:

This is a wonderful – and rare – opportunity for CCGs to make impressive cost savings. It is not often that we have a chance to easily cut costs, and here we have it.

By simply changing the name of the drug and informing the patient that it is exactly the same contraceptive pill containing the same active ingredients, but with different name, packaging and manufacturer, we have the opportunity to save.

This process is so much easier than changing entire therapies, and then having consequent reviews and potential side effects to deal with. We can keep the treatment the same but a simple change to a branded generic can make vital financial savings across CCGs.

It makes absolute sense to switch to branded generic products such as Levest®, Cimizt®, Lizinna® and Zelleta®, as patients are receiving the medication they require with an equivalent brand where switching is therapeutically neutral, but at a fraction of the price. This really helps us to take some of the financial pressures off the surgery’s prescribing budget.
