Novartis develops, manufactures and markets innovative medicines, devices and diagnostic tests which help improve patient outcomes. Based on sites across the north and south of England, we serve healthcare needs across the whole of the UK, as well as supporting the global operations of Novartis by manufacturing the active pharmaceutical ingredients used worldwide in many medicines.
Novartis focuses its business on three leading divisions: pharmaceuticals, eye care and generics. These three divisions are supported by our global research organisation, the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR) and by a centralised services group, Novartis Business Services.
In the UK, Novartis employs over 1500 people across four sites, including Novartis UK headquarters in Frimley, Surrey. These sites are responsible for the sales, marketing and manufacturing of products used in the UK and worldwide.
We aim to develop innovative products in growing areas of healthcare. At the same time, we are expanding our presence in the emerging markets of Asia, Africa and Latin America, where there is fast-growing demand for access to high-quality medicines and healthcare.
