At Novartis, we value the work of patient groups and the important role they play in supporting the needs of people fighting serious illnesses. We are committed to discovering new ways to improve people’s lives, and often work collaboratively with patient organisations on specific initiatives in order to make a difference to those in need.
Collaborating with patient groups helps us better understand the needs of people living with certain diseases, where unmet need remains and how we can help deliver improved care for patients. Learnings from our collaborations with patient groups also help to inform some of our joint working projects with the NHS; for more information click here.
We ensure that our interactions with patient groups are ethical and we strive to build relationships based on transparency, mutual respect and shared goals. To find out more about our commitment to patients click here.
