LEO Pharma in the UK
LEO Pharma’s presence in the UK is as part of the unified UK and Ireland commercial operations affiliate (UK/IE), comprising of different offices and field-based teams across each of the two countries, which work both independently and in partnership to deliver patient-focused innovations in dermatology and thrombosis. Elements of many programmes which were developed and launched locally are now established throughout other LEO Pharma affiliates globally, which is testament to LEO Pharma UK/IE’s innovative, collaborative and creative team.
The UK/IE affiliate also acts as the central international hub coordinating activities for the ‘Region Europe North+’ cluster of LEO affiliates. In addition to the UK and Ireland, the cluster comprises of Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Australia and New Zealand.
Whilst patient-focused engagement and medical education programmes are spearheaded by the LEO Pharma UK/IE affiliate, Manufacturing plants are located in Ireland with the topical dermatological plant in Dublin and an anticoagulation plant in Cork, which accounts for one-third of LEO Pharma’s global manufacturing capabilities.
