Partnerships and Support
Alcon Eye Care UK Limited works at a national, regional and local level with key stakeholders to support the delivery of healthcare and enable greater access for patients.
Healthcare Professional Payment Transparency
Alcon Eye Care UK Limited (‘Alcon’) is proud of its collaborations. Working together with the NHS, its staff and patient groups is vital for improving outcomes for patients and ensuring they receive the best possible care. Patients benefit from these collaborations with new and improved medical devices, better services and care, and clinical teams that have benefited from education.
The disclosure of payments to individuals is an industry-led initiative, which Alcon fully supports and has fully complied with by providing the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industries (ABPI) with a list of payments published on their website, where pharmaceutical company payments to individuals and healthcare organisations in the UK are listed.
Transparency across the public sector, including healthcare, is increasingly being demanded by the general public. Alcon has made every effort to encourage all individuals to disclose details of their payments, and is committed to continuing to work with all stakeholders to increase transparency around these relationships.
We believe that open communication about these interactions helps foster trust with patients, the NHS, and the public, and we are dedicated to full transparency. We are committed to working with integrity, upholding high ethical standards, and following all laws and regulations.
Our mission is to discover new ways to improve and extend people's lives. Our vision is to be a trusted leader in changing the practice of medicine. We aspire to have a strong and sustainable culture defined by strong values which help us execute the Novartis strategy in line with our mission and vision. We collaborate closely with partners who share a common vision and complementary strengths to achieve success. Our strategy is to use science-based innovation to deliver better patient outcomes. We aim to lead in growing areas of healthcare.
