As a healthcare company, we regularly work with healthcare professionals. From collaborating on clinical trials providing high quality, balanced information about our medicines and vaccines, in all of our interactions we aim to be transparent about our work, operate with integrity, and always put the interests of patients first.

Physicians are vital to our organisation and our mission of helping people do more, feel better, live longer. We rely on the expertise and insight of doctors and other healthcare professionals to understand patient needs, and help us to develop new treatments that will best address these needs.
Working with healthcare professionals on clinical trials is an essential part of our efforts to develop new medicines and vaccines.
We are making industry leading reforms to our business model. We have already changed how we incentivise our sales professionals. Now we are changing how we deliver medical education to healthcare professionals including removing direct sponsorship from GSK to individuals to attend scientific conferences and stopping direct payments to healthcare professionals to speak on our behalf.
We are committed to public disclosure of payments we make to healthcare professionals.
