UK market access: the importance of a local value story

Practical insights on how to ensure product adoption in the UK

Health reforms throughout European markets reinforce the call for biopharma companies to engage early with a wide range of stakeholders and provide real world evidence to support a product’s value proposition, and the UK is no different.

In the country’s fluid healthcare environment, with its new clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and different decision makers, market access activities have never been more important in the launch of a new medicine.

Payers now measure value by the impact on the patient and they are demanding meaningful data that demonstrates real world health outcomes from a new product. But market access starts before product approval and activities should first be initiated during the clinical trial phase. 

Gaining early understanding of stakeholder requirements and their impact on product development and market launch can help design a more effective lifecycle strategy, which can result in accelerated product approval at a value-based reimbursement price. 

The Webinar “Getting Market Access right in the UK”, was presented by Janice Haigh, Practice Leader, Market Access Europe at Quintiles and Gareth Williams, UK Director, Market Access & Innovation at Quintiles and discussed:

  • Global influences driving Market Access and how the European Marketplace is evolving with a focus  on current changes across the European major markets
  • The UK marketplace is evolving with major structural changes going live in the coming months within the NHS. Get insight on those changes and how they will effect pricing and Market Access 
  • What are the key success factors in getting Market Access right in the UK
