ITV's This Morning talks about the cost of identical medicines

Identical medicines discussed by Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis


TV’s MoneySavingExpert Martin Lewis used the backing of the RPS when he appeared on ITV’s This Morning programme to talk about the prices of identical medicines to Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

In his regular money-saving slot on the popular morning show Martin explained what the PL number means on a packet of medicines. He highlighted that people can end up paying high prices for branded medicines without knowing that cheaper, generic versions can be just as effective and in some cases, identical. RPS has worked closely with the MoneySavingExpert team on a report on branded and generic medicines.
