An interim report into Pharmac has found issues with transparency, fairness and equity. 

The independent review is the first since the drug buying agency was established more than 25 years ago, looked at how well it performs against its targets. 

Pharmac Chief Executive Sarah Fitt boss accepts the drug buying agency needs to do better and they're working to be more transparent. 

The ACT party have labelled the review a whitewash and are calling on Minister of Health Andrew Little to reset the report and start again. 

ACT's Deputy Leader and Health Spokesperson Brooke Van Velden joined Kerre McIvor.
