We’re Teva, we develop, produce and market affordable generic medicines, as well as innovative and specialty pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter consumer healthcare products, along with supplying active pharmaceutical ingredients to nearly 1,000 customers in over 100 countries.
We’re the UK arm of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd; that means we're part of one of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies in the world. With over a century of experience in pharmaceuticals, Teva is a big player on the world stage, which brings considerable benefits to us in the UK.
In the UK we've been around for over 80 years, which is longer than the NHS!
We’re a leader in UK healthcare, supplying a wide range of medicines to the UK’s National Health Service, as well as working alongside NHS organisations to improve the management of long term conditions.
Today we specialise in both generic and branded medicines, improving the lives of patients, whether it is by fighting infections, controlling cholesterol, relieving the symptoms of asthma, or providing lifesaving injectable medicines and pain relief for cancer sufferers. Our medicines are used in hospitals, pharmacies and clinics.
Teva plays an important role in delivering value to healthcare systems and economies around the world. The scale of production and accessible price of our products help to limit rising healthcare costs and improve patient health outcomes.
We have a new way of looking at people: through health, not only through sickness. This means we will not only help sick people get better – which is what we have done so far – but also help healthy people stay healthy. We will go further “beyond the pill” into integrated solutions, disease management, prevention and overall wellness.
As people seek to play a bigger role in their health, we too must play a bigger role in enabling them to feel more in control by providing both emotional and functional support in the form of the medicines, tools and information they need.
Real patient insights
Everything we do is based on real patient insights and grounded in real data. We have been listening to our patients in new ways, getting to know them and understand their needs, concerns and aspirations. Our research shows that people want to take better control of their own health and wellness, in ways that have not been possible until now.
With our strong global footprint, size and scale, and our world-class portfolio of generic and specialty medicines; we are in a unique position to deliver best-in-class, sustainable and accessible solutions that help patients manage their overall health.
This means fully understanding the care they need now and anticipating their needs in the future. It requires developing solutions that transform care—and helping to ensure those solutions are within reach. It involves forming partnerships to help us have an even greater impact.
The result of these efforts will drive better health. Being healthier gives people options, control of their lives, time with loved ones, and achieves our ultimate goal of enabling patients to live better days.
