Reckitt Benckiser sued by NHS

23rd February 2011

The NHS in England has launched legal action against the makers of the heartburn medicine Gaviscon.

High Court documents have revealed that Health Secretary Andrew Lansley is leading the action against Reckitt Benckiser on behalf of health authorities and primary care trusts. Reckitt Benckiser was fined £10m last year for abusing its dominant market position in the supply of heartburn remedies to the NHS. Both the Department of Health and the company have declined to comment on the subject at this stage.
