You may not have heard of us – we often think of ourselves as the biggest secret in healthcare – but our medicines are taken by millions of patients around the world every single day. From leading branded medicines that treat diseases and conditions, ranging from multiple sclerosis and asthma to cancer, to a portfolio of generic medicines that is one of the widest in our industry, treating conditions as diverse as epilepsy and eczema – we touch the lives of over 200 million patients around the world every day.

We’re proud of that, and the fact that we’ve got big names like Sudocrem and Vicks in our consumer facing business too.

And we’re not sitting still: we have our eye to the future. We are looking at new technologies, innovative devices, and a fresh approach to services. We are partnering with technology, digital and e-health companies to help make treatment options that are fit for the future. If this is a future you want to be a part of, read on…
