Our range of respiratory medicines means we share a common interest with respiratory specialists.
We focus on supporting the NHS and the Department of Health in managing long-term conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We address cost-efficient prescribing and develop joined-up care through our Joint Working projects to help improve patient outcomes and also offer value for money.
By recognising aligned goals and objectives in areas of mutual interest, we can work jointly to improve patient outcomes and enhance patient experience. That might be through medicines optimisation, quality improvement, pathway redesign or improvement, innovation or identifying cost efficiencies.
Over five million people in the UK are currently receiving treatment for asthma and the NHS is thought to spend over £1 billion each year treating the condition.1
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the most common respiratory diseases in the UK – with over three million people living with the condition. However, only about 900,000 have formally been diagnosed,2 because people are reluctant to seek medical help, and often ignore their symptoms.
As well as developing and providing our own specialty medicines dedicated to the treatment of asthma and COPD, we provide a range of information, consultation and education services to help you manage and improve the service you provide to your patients. This includes inhaler technique training and helping patients understand how compliance and self management of their condition can benefit their overall health.
We work in partnership with multiple Clinical Commissioning Groups across the country to deliver improved patient outcomes. This is through such Joint Working projects as advanced inhaler training, improving patient education and clinical management of asthma and COPD as well as many more projects. Our Joint Working projects are available on our Joint Working pages.
