Teva provides medicines that help improve the health of millions of patients in the UK every day.
We provide hundreds of generic medicines which are supplied to the country’s thousands of pharmacies and dispensaries. We also have a presence in the GP surgery and hospitals with medicines to treat multiple sclerosis, cancer, pain, Parkinson’s disease and respiratory disorders like asthma.
We’ve been around for almost 80 years and supply more packs of medicines to the National Health Service than anyone else.1 Whether they’re used in hospitals or by GPs, nurses, or independent pharmacists, our medicines are backed by comprehensive advice and information.
Generic medicines save the NHS more than £13 billion in just England and Wales.2 Teva contributes more than £3 billion to these savings. Without Teva and all the other generics companies, the drugs bill would be approximately twice its current level.3
We believe the changes in the NHS give community pharmacy a great opportunity to shape its own destiny and establish itself as a key service provider in the evolving NHS: helping patients take their medicines properly, and helping address public health issues. We believe pharmacy should be involved with what’s happening locally to ensure they protect and develop patient services as well as firmly establish their own patient service provider roles within the NHS.
We’re here to help and that’s why we’ve created an area dedicated to your most frequently asked questions. If you can’t find what you need there, or in the Summary of Product Characteristics for our medicines you can contact us by this website, by phone or by email.
We hope this Guide to Teva has helped you understand who we are at Teva, and see that improving the health of patients in the UK is our vision, goal and purpose.
