General Affiliate membership


General Affiliate membership is open to organisations with an interest in the pharmaceutical industry that operate in the UK.

Most of our General Affiliate members are suppliers of products and services to the industry, including law firms, management consultants, and recruitment agents. Affiliate Membership is designed to keep colleagues within a company engaged and informed around the policy areas and changes in the environment that affect their clients. In order for them to do this we offer a range of regular communications and updates to ensure colleagues are knowledgeable in their day to day work. 

How we support our General Affiliate members
