The most obvious way in which Takeda improves people's lives is by researching, developing and bringing to market new and better medicines that help to address the nation's most pressing healthcare needs.
But just as important are the different ways in which we help healthcare providers to get the right medicines to the right patients. Having restructured our entire business model to align our operations more closely to the continually evolving requirements of front-line healthcare providers, we have the flexibility, creativity and speed of response to help clinicians and their patients in many different ways. Drawing on our own resources and specialist knowledge, together with best practice from all around the country, we are ideally placed to offer timely, effective and expert support on a partnership basis.
Being developed in close collaboration with healthcare professionals in response to specific local needs, the success of these initiatives is measurable over time in terms of improved patient outcomes, whether in primary or secondary care. The help we provide takes diverse forms, from supporting GP practices in auditing high-risk groups and supporting the work of patient organisations to specialist nurse training, community initiatives and culturally-specific education programmes for vulnerable patient populations.
As well-informed specialist partners in key therapy areas, who share a common goal, our approach is open, collaborative and patient-centred. The overwhelmingly positive feedback from our NHS partners supports our conviction that this way of working promotes effective innovation and offers a mutually productive way forward to a healthier society.
