Working with HCPs and HCOs

Novo Nordisk works alongside Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) to improve the development and delivery of life-enhancing and life-saving medicines for patients.

To ensure that patients have confidence in these relationships, the pharmaceutical industry is taking the lead on disclosing details of payments and other benefits in kind made by Novo Nordisk to HCPs and HCOs.

In-line with current ABPI requirements, Novo Nordisk submits information regarding transfers of the value made to healthcare organisations and healthcare professionals to the ABPI central disclosure platform.  For further information, please visit www.disclosureuk.org.uk.

Statement for the disclosure of 2019 data during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020

As part of the pharmaceutical industry’s annual disclosure of transfers of value to HCPs, ORDMs and HCOs via the Disclosure UK platform and in order to ensure accuracy of the published data, the ABPI writes to all of the HCPs, ORDMs and HCOs named in companies’ disclosure data ahead of its publication on Disclosure UK at the end of June.

Given the unprecedented pressure on the NHS and health care professionals in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, in April 2020 the ABPI and PMCPA agreed that it would not be appropriate for industry to write to HCPs, ORDMs or HCOs to request that disclosure data be reviewed. Doing so would add additional work for NHS professionals at this time. To avoid this, and in-line with guidance provided by the ABPI, Novo Nordisk’s 2019 transfer of value data has been published on the Disclosure UK portal in aggregate.

Commitment to transparency

The pharmaceutical industry is committed to preserving the integrity of Disclosure UK and transparency in our interactions with HCPs, ORDMs and HCOs. The ABPI continues to explore how the full disaggregated 2019 data can be submitted to Disclosure UK in line with data from previous years.
