We work on behalf of our members to protect and enhance the reputation of the consumer healthcare industry in the media and with the public, and to promote and encourage self care.
If the media report concerns around an ingredient used in an over-the-counter medicine, a self care medical device or a food supplement product, our team will assess the situation and respond appropriately on behalf of our members.
An enhanced business profile
Your products will be included in the OTC Directory online, our go-to resource for healthcare professionals seeking advice on supporting patients and consumers to self care.
PAGB offers free use of its meeting rooms to members, and very reduced rates for associate members. We also invite our members to hot-desk at our offices if you’re in the area (subject to availability).
Is my company eligible for Full membership?
Companies qualify for full membership of PAGB if they manufacture and/or market branded non-prescription medicines, self-care medical devices, food supplements or registered herbal medicines in the United Kingdom.
How much does Full membership cost?
The minimum fee for full membership starts from £5000+VAT at 20% annually and this is charged on a pro rata basis from the date you join. Full membership covers you and colleagues working within the UK consumer healthcare department. Each company fee is calculated based on their respective sales taken from a Nielsen total market report.
You may be at a stage where you are considering viable routes to market entry, exploring claims, or seeking to reclassify a product and we can support you on that via Gateway membership or contact us for more information about our regulatory and advertising consultancy service.
