At Roche, we firmly believe that better patient care can be achieved through collaborative working with the NHS. The ABPI Code of Practice defines ‘Collaborative Working with Organisations’ as work which either enhances patient care or is for the benefit of patients or alternatively benefits the NHS and, as a minimum, maintains patient care, and must be carried out in a manner compatible with the Code. 

Collaborative working is generally between one or more pharmaceutical companies, healthcare organisations and other organisations. 

Joint working is a limited form of collaborative working and describes work between one or more pharmaceutical companies and the NHS and others which is patient-centred and, the key defining point that separates it from collaborative working is that joint working always benefit patients. 

Roche has successfully worked and continues to work alongside national, regional, and local NHS organisations to support and implement developments in healthcare delivery for the benefit of patients.

All of this we believe can lead to improved access to quality healthcare services, and better outcomes for patients and their families.
