The total number of prescriptions written in the UK tolled at 887 Million in 2009, which was estimated to reach 940 Million at the end of 2010.

One of the important aspects about the UK, which is not unique but quite unusual in Europe, is that it is an International Nonproprietary Name (INN) market, where medical students are trained according to the INN prescription guidelines. Moreover, INN prescribing happens during the patent term as doctors are trained to write by INN.

Hence, the UK has over 80% of prescriptions that are being written by INN irrespective of the patent status of the product. This is the largest single element that has led to the growth of the generics market.

Consequently, generics were estimated to account for around 86% of the prescriptions in 2009, says our new research report “UK Generics Market Analysis”.
