'glaxo wellcome'

(with logo - supplied)

Glaxo Wellcome is one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, and the major single supplier of medicines to the NHS. As a global research-based group, we are dedicated to fighting disease by bringing innovative medicines and services to patients throughout the world and the healthcare providers who serve them.

Our continuing success is based upon working in partnership with healthcare professionals, listening to patients, and anticipating and responding to changes in the healthcare environment.

We believe that prevention and treatment of disease is about much more than providing effective medicines. That is why we take an active role in developing initiatives aimed at improving patients' health, such as the provision of comprehensive information packs for patients', and specialist support services for NHS managers, doctors, nurses and pharmacists. This includes providing health economics and health management information, and giving guidance on medical audit and healthcare priorities.

These broad services aim to provide a framework within which the NHS can work to achieve its mission - 'to improve the nations' health and to secure provision of high quality care for those who need it'.

Attention to the views, needs and experience of the people who prescribe and take Glaxo Wellcome medicines, combined with the quality of the company's innovative products, is the key our future success.
