1 David Fisher Commercial Director, ABPI PDIG Summer Conference 2008

2 Building Partnerships with the NHS PPRS Renegotiations

3 Ministerial Industry Strategy Group “There are a number of areas where increased dialogue and partnership between the NHS and industry would deliver significant benefits for Government, patients, industry and research.” A more ‘mature’ relationship can be developed between the industry and the NHS (at both national and local levels) through joint working on areas of mutual interest and benefit.

4 Why do it? The NHS in National standards, local delivery Professional networks and KOLs still important, but will increasingly ‘bump up’ against the local commissioning agenda Less clinical / prescribing freedom for individual GPs or Pharmacists

5 The NHS of tomorrow.. More contracted GPs – obliged to conform with local formularies (who writes these?) More ‘corporate’ and better informed More prescribers, but more controls

6 “Significant changes in the structure and measurement of the NHS, and particularly the introduction of a variety of Health Trusts and new business - orientated roles in the NHS, have meant that there are more complex channels to go through to sell a particular product. Managers in Trusts are increasingly focused on value for money when choosing medicines, which has an impact on what clinicians are guided to prescribe.” Carolyn Hunt, Head of Field Force Training and Development, Pfizer (Pf March 08)

7 TRAINING ABPI Training for industry managers initiating and implementing joint working projects Industry and NHS stakeholder training and support POTENTIAL PROJECTS Build on ideas arising out of NHS Workshop September 2006 Articulate the ‘win-win’ GUIDANCE and TOOLKIT DH Guidance specific to joint working Best practice toolkit on joint working for NHS and industry managers (on DH and ABPI websites) Promotion and dissemination of toolkit at key conferences and other forums Recommendations

8 JOINT WORKING DEFINITION Joint working between the pharmaceutical industry and the NHS refers to situations where, for the benefit of patients, organisations pool skills, experience and/or resources for the joint development and implementation of patient- centered projects and share a commitment to successful delivery. Joint working agreements and management arrangements are conducted in an open and transparent manner. Joint working differs from sponsorship, where pharmaceutical company(ies) simply provide funds for a specific event or work programme. Joint Working

9 ABPI NHS Outreach Programme: What Is It? Reaching out to NHS customers that do not talk to / engage with pharma (‘do not enter here’ policies) Describing mutually beneficial ways of working to improve service / quality to patients Introducing companies to new NHS customers Facilitating joint working projects Learning and sharing what works and how

10 NHS / Pharma Involvement 32 out of 33 ‘difficult to access’ PCTs expressed an interest in working with the programme 24 companies involved in N West 25 companies involved in S West 35 companies involved in East Mids

11 What it isn’t ABPI constraining individual company activity (all are free to pursue their own agendas in parallel to outreach) NHS customers seeing ‘working with pharma’ as ‘working through ABPI’ ABPI ‘pooling’ pharma resources to offer to NHS customers

12 How do we do it? Leg work and hard work Establishing rapport and building trust (ABPI is broadly trusted by NHS customers) Working through their priorities and then describing those that might be of interest to pharma Joint working not sponsorship – both parties put something in and get something out Agreeing the project design with pharma companies around the table thereby influencing outcomes, building rapport and trust

13 Challenges Neither NHS customers nor pharma companies are ‘joined up’ Communicating the programme is largely ‘bottom up’ Establishing rapport and building trust and learning new behaviours ABPI Code of Practice?

14 Outcomes to date Programme well received by both NHS customers and pharma on the ground Helping companies think through the learning need of their front line staff based on evidence (what they need to know, how they need to behave) Asking NHS customers to promote the benefits of working with pharma (articles in the press, conference presentations)

15 Involving the right people with appropriate support? “Need more senior endorsement, from senior to middle management. The local people lack experience and skills to release the budgets and marketing skills”. “On the pharma side, by being a senior person, I was able to get the partnership agreement completed quickly, and I gained more from the project by knowing how to use the opportunity”. (Pharma)

16 “HDM has a different meaning in different companies - some are specialist sales reps, hence pushing sales; others are more project based”. “The industry people are less experienced than the NHS people”. (Pharma) Involving the right people with appropriate support?

17 “Sales reps may not be the most appropriate people. Not sure why they were chosen, or who else is available in the companies”. “It could have been helpful to bring in other expertise from within the pharma companies at certain times e.g. marketing”. “Were reps the right people to have on this team”? “When choosing reps, the companies should find out who would be best suited. Is it just the local rep who is being sent? This is not necessarily the best person. The same can be said for the PCT choice of person”. (NHS)

18 What’s in it for Pharma? By working with the NHS to improve the quality and quantity of care provided …… E.g. through provision of high quality education programmes to ensure staff are adequately trained to diagnose and treat patients; by helping to increase access and capacity of services etc….. ….will ultimately result in more modern medicines being appropriately prescribed and used properly by patients
