Patient groups are organisations that represent the interests of patients with a particular disease or condition. They play a crucial role in informing and supporting patients, as well as safeguarding the rights of patients and their carers.
Novartis is committed to supporting the important work of patient groups and to working collaboratively with them on specific projects where there is a shared interest and benefit to patients.
In all our interactions with patient groups, we strive to build relationships based on mutual respect and transparency.
A list of patient groups to which Novartis UK provided support for in 2019 is detailed here.
We publish this information annually for Novartis UK Innovative Medicines division.
