Transfer of Values Figures


17 Apr 2019:

MSD has conducted a thorough assessment into the recent issue whereby MSD figures reported on the Irish Transfer of Value (TOV) website were incorrect. 


The cause of this issue was an error in uploading the data that resulted in all of MSD’s payments being increased by a factor of 100.   The incorrect data were posted on the TOV site from February 27, 2019 until April 12, 2019, a period of approximately 6 weeks. The correct data has now been published on the Transfer of Values website, JavaScript:extLink('


We sincerely apologise that this error occurred and we have implemented a number of measures to ensure this situation does not arise again.  This week, we will write to all those healthcare professionals and organisations affected to ensure they are aware of the issue and the steps we have taken to rectify this matter. 


MSD is committed to accurately reporting this information and is fully committed to providing transparency around our company interactions with key stakeholders. 


We would ask any Healthcare Professionals or Healthcare Organisations who may have queries and concerns on this issue to contact us directly at
