Supplementary notes

Patient access is defined for most countries as the point at which the product gains access to the reimbursement list.

* In these countries some products are not included in the reimbursement scheme and so this artificially declines the average time.

** The source mentions that it does not take into account France's system of temporary authorization for some products, which means this time will be higher than in reality. ***MHRA’s Early Access to Medicines Scheme provides access prior to marketing authorization but is not included within this analysis, and would reduce the overall days for a small subset of medicines.
