Enabling sustainable partnership between the NHS and the life sciences industry

To improve patient care, innovation and outcomes at better value for the health system we enable projects and programmes to take place from which each stakeholder is able to derive mutual benefit. This is achieved via a transparent platform of partnership and cooperation between industry and the NHS, both nationally and regionally.

In 2017, IQVIA entered into a strategic collaboration with the country’s leading transformative body for oncology services, the national Cancer Vanguard. The Cancer Vanguard works across a total population of 10.7 million people, providing an unprecedented opportunity to transform and create new models of cancer care that can be reproduced nationally. This initiative, in partnership with the pharmaceutical industry, has recently been extended to improve the breast cancer patient care pathway across the Greater Manchester and represents a clear embodiment of a core pillar of the life sciences industrial strategy in using data and digital tools to support research and improve patient care.

As the move toward increasingly accountable and integrated care systems builds momentum, we continue to work with individual Trusts, Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) and the industry, to improve treatment pathways by supporting collaboration across the health system as a whole.
