At Novartis, we’re proud of our ongoing partnership with the NHS and are committed to working with the NHS to deliver better care for patients.

Prior to commencement of each joint working project, specific milestones are outlined and agreed by all parties. Funding and resources are provided by the parties in line with the agreed schedule, providing the project milestones have been achieved. Where Novartis is providing funding, payment is only made when an invoice has been issued by the NHS recipient. This ensures funds are allocated and given responsibly.

Novartis Oncology

Since 2011, Novartis Oncology has worked on many joint working projects with the NHS. We share the NHS goal of improving treatment pathways and care for cancer patients, and firmly believe that greater collaboration with industry can support the NHS in meeting the healthcare challenges of the 21st century.

Novartis Pharmaceuticals

Novartis Pharmaceuticals also collaborates with the NHS to develop new services that better serve the needs of patients. By working together to discover access solutions, our partnerships aim to transform the care given to patients, irrespective of their care setting. We want to see the NHS be a sustainable health service, not just for today but also for future generations.

Novartis is committed to transparency. Full details of our current joint working projects are listed below.
