2013 UK Payment Disclosure

In 2013 GSK made payments totalling £1.69 million to 1,106 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 conducting 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 £458,180 in sponsorship payments to support 519 UK-based HCPs to attend scientific conferences and meetings in 2013. Sponsorship in this context includes registration fees, costs of accommodation and travel (both inside and outside the UK).

2013 grants and donations to healthcare organisations

GSK provides grants and donations in response to unsolicited requests from UK healthcare organisations to support medical programmes that cover unmet needs and improve patient care.

In 2013 GSK paid a total of £75,001 to 142 healthcare organisations. Further details of these payments including organisation names and amounts are provided here.
