​​​​​​​Committed To Improving The Lives Of Those Affected By Cancer

Pfizer Oncology has a longstanding commitment to the pursuit of life-changing breakthroughs. By placing patients and collaboration at the centre of everything we do, we believe we can have a meaningful impact on the lives of cancer patients. Both now, and in the future.

Changing Lives

Every day, around 1,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK.But, thanks to innovative treatment breakthroughs and significant advances in our understanding of the disease, more people than ever are surviving cancer.2

At Pfizer Oncology, we have an industry-leading portfolio of more than 20 approved innovative cancer medicines and biosimilars across over 30 indications, including melanoma, breast, genitourinary, colorectal, blood and lung cancers.3

We've made meaningful progress - but our work is far from finished. Currently, there are 130 Pfizer-sponsored Oncology clinical trials, with studies spanning more than 20 different tumour types and subtypes.4​​​​​​​

Building Partnerships

At Pfizer UK, we are proud of our long history of successfully partnering with organisations that share our purpose to deliver the right treatment for each patient at the right time. We also partner with scientists, academics and clinicians, to share knowledge, skills and expertise, with the aim to improve the health and lives of people in the UK and around the world.

Over the past 70 years, we have continued to invest in the UK and are committed to working with the National Health Service (NHS) and other healthcare organisations across the industry, developing solutions to improve the delivery of care and patient outcomes. The NHS has access to over 150 Pfizer medicines and vaccines that are delivered to pharmacies, surgeries, and hospitals across the UK every day.5

We also partner with relevant policy-makers and other stakeholders driven by our purpose: ​​​​​​​Breakthroughs that change patients' lives.

​​​​​​​Empowering Patients

Patients are now -  more than ever - equipped, informed and empowered to define healthcare in their own terms. At Pfizer, we recognise the importance of harnessing the power of patient experiences to understand what healthcare means to the individual. Through our commitment to working together, we aim to personalise patient care and deliver better healthcare for the people that matter most - patients.6

Patient centricity within Pfizer Oncology is a longstanding tradition. Over the years, our team has cultivated relationships with many patient advocates across the world - with the common goals of ensuring health equity and literacy for all, and supporting patient engagement in clinical trials.

In 2019, to expand these efforts and further embed patient insights and experiences into all activities, Pfizer Oncology launched an initiative to create a Patient Centric Ecosystem (POPCE). Today, this ecosystem is continuing to yield actionable insights, providing opportunities for information-sharing and partnership across the cancer community.4

Committed To The Future

At Pfizer, we are relentless in our pursuit of medicines and vaccines that will benefit patients around the world, and our product pipeline has never been stronger. By 2025, we are committed to treating 225 million people with breakthrough therapies.

In addition to our medicines, we are also supporting patients through innovative technologies, such as the ByYourSideTM app, a digital support programme designed specifically to help people living with cancer, as well as their friends and family members.7 

In the UK, our investment goes beyond our medicines. We are investing in the future by supporting the scientists of tomorrow, through the UK's National Apprenticeship Programme, our undergraduate placement scheme and various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and SIP (Science Industry Partnership) activities.​​​​​​​5
