Big pharma limits deliveries to Greece

A number of big pharma, including Roche and Sanofi, have started limiting drug deliveries to some hospitals in Greece because of unpaid bills, according to the UK newspaper the Times

A number of big pharma, including Roche and Sanofi, have started limiting drug deliveries to some hospitals in Greece because of unpaid bills, according to the UK newspaper the Times.

The newspaper reported that Roche has halted deliveries to public hospitals that have not paid their bills since September. However, the Swiss company will continue to supply medicines it considers to be life-saving, the Times said.

GlaxoSmithKline told PMLiVE that it is in talks with the Greek government, but will not halt deliveries.

Nycomed may also suspend deliveries if the situation worsens, according to the Times.

Nycomed, Roche and Sanofi were unavailable to comment at the time of writing.
