2012 Aggregate Healthcare Professional Payment Disclosure

In 2012 GSK made payments totalling £1.9M to 1,517 UK-based healthcare professionals (HCPs) for providing advice and consultancy, including chairing and speaking at meetings, assistance with training and participation in advisory boards. Many UK-based HCPs are considered global experts and therefore these fees include payments made by GSK operating companies around the globe. This figure does not include payments to consultants in relation to research and development work, including the conduct of clinical trials.

GSK ensures that any payment made to HCPs is reasonable, within market rates and reflects the time they spend speaking/advising.

GSK also paid a total of £887,294 in sponsorship payments to support 1022 UK-based HCPs to attend scientific conferences and meetings in 2012. Sponsorship in this context includes registration fees, costs of accommodation and travel (both inside and outside the UK).

GSK provides grants and donations to UK healthcare organisations to support the purchasing of medical equipment, research where GSK is not directly involved in the activity and to support their employees / members to undertake medical education / study run by independent third parties, such as University courses and diplomas.

In 2012 GSK paid a total of £177,933 to 156 healthcare organisations. Further details of these payments including organisation names and amounts are provided here.
