Our generic medicines and key therapy areas

Many of our medicines are a ‘generic’. Generic medicines contain the same active, or key, ingredient as the original medicine brand.

Generic medicines save the NHS billions of pounds a year1. These savings mean that when difficult decisions about the allocation of funding need to be made within the NHS, generic medicines have done their part in allowing a proportion of the budget to be freed up
