As the biggest supplier by volume to the NHS, we know that patients all across the UK rely on Teva for their medicines.1
We take that responsibility very seriously. From packaging to distribution, all through our supply chain, we're focused on making our medicines accessible to healthcare professionals and ultimately onto patients.
We pack around four billion tablets and capsules a year into around 200 million packs of medicines at our solid dose packaging facility in Eastbourne. This site follows industry-recognised Good Manufacturing Practice, meaning the highest standards of quality and safety are applied throughout the packaging process.
From the tablets/capsules arriving in bulk containers to the final medicine boxes being stored on the pallet ready for shipping, our packaging experts oversee every stage. This includes creating the artwork for the outer box, the design and the packaging components.
After they’re packed at our Eastbourne site, our medicine packs arrive at our distribution centre in Castleford, West Yorkshire. Other medicines, such as our branded lines, are delivered directly to our distribution centre.
Every working day we supply our wholesale partners with the products they have ordered from us. Wholesalers act as the link between manufacturers and doctors, pharmacists and hospitals, taking delivery of medicines; storing them safely and securely until they are needed by customers; then delivering them, as required, quickly and efficiently to wherever they are needed by patients.
You may collect your prescription in a pharmacy or dispensing practice, or you may have been given your medication whilst you were in hospital.
From Eastbourne, to Castleford and Harlow, we have invested in our technology and facilities to guarantee the highest pharmaceutical standards.
There are four main Teva sites in the UK and a large field-sales team who are responsible for geographic areas of the country and our various customer groups.
Teva employs over 1,200 people across the UK, in our main locations and in field-based roles.
