At PAGB, we represent over 90% of the UK’s manufacturers of branded over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, medical devices and food supplements.
As primary care continues to face growing pressures, we aim to empower self-care as the expert voice of the UK consumer healthcare industry. We are working to increasing consumers’ confidence in self-care, educating with guidance and expertise on the efficacy and safety of OTC products, and promoting awareness of the expertise that community pharmacists can offer people for self-treatable conditions.
We support journalists and media with information and guidance about branded OTC medicines, medical devices and food supplements, whilst making efforts to improve the quality and accuracy of reporting on science and health issues.
Get in touch with our media and communications team for our expert comment and guidance relating to the latest news in the consumer healthcare industry.
To support journalists who may need information and comment quickly and from recognised experts in the field, we work closely with a number of independent healthcare professionals and PAGB experts in the pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare industry.
Our experts provide comments and insights on OTC medicines and medical devices to support PAGB’s statements and any news coverage to help increase consumer confidence to self-care.
