Established in 1896, Roche has been supporting the health of the UK since 1908, even before the NHS was established. We are a committed, long term partner to this country.

Roche continues to search for better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases and make a sustainable contribution to society. We have one mission: to do now what patients need next.

Over thirty medicines developed by Roche are included in the World Health Organisation Model Lists of Essential Medicines, among them life-saving antibiotics, antimalarials and cancer medicines. We have over 580 different diagnostic tests that either look for signs of disease or are used in managing disease.

Moreover, for the twelfth consecutive year, Roche has been recognised as one of the most sustainable companies in the Pharmaceuticals Industry by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).

We have had a presence in the UK since 1908, operating across three main business areas:

  • Pharmaceuticals - The UK is one of our most important global centres for researching and developing novel medicines, as well as marketing these medicines once they have been developed.

  • Diagnostics - We provide a broad and cutting-edge portfolio of tests and technology to prevent, diagnose and manage diseases.

  • Diabetes care - We provide diabetes management solutions and services to improve the lives of people living with diabetes.
