Supply of Medicines

We are working to a shared agenda with the NHS, health care professionals and the Government in delivering effective and efficient healthcare to patients. Our agent supply network ensures a modern and effective supply and delivery service is in place at all times.

AstraZeneca's Supply and Delivery Service

A review of how AstraZeneca medicines reached patients in the UK during 2007 highlighted opportunities to simplify and modernise the existing system to help us ensure that our medicines are delivered to those who need them, when they need them.

Old Supply Chain
Old Supply Chain

We now deliver our medicines directly to customers in the UK through three agency partners AAH Pharmaceuticals Ltd, Alliance Healthcare and Phoenix.

We are supplying our medicines directly to the NHS with the help of our agency partners, instead of supplying them indirectly through a wholesaling system.

This more direct relationship, allows us to have a direct channel of communication and to better understand the needs of our customers and the UK Pharmaceutical supply chain environment.

NHS Childhood Seasonal Flu Immunisation Programme

As part of the NHS Seasonal Flu Immunisation programme, from September 2018 children qualifying for a free nasal spray vaccine in GP surgeries are all 2-3 years old (but not 4 years or older) on 31st August 2018.

The school’s programme is being extended this season to school year 5 so that all children in reception year and school years 1-5 will be offered flu vaccination in England (apart from the Isles of Scilly where it is offered through general practice). In Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, other cohorts maybe included.

In former school pilot areas all primary school aged children will continue to be offered the vaccine.

Those children in the clinically at-risk groups, aged 2 to less than 18 years of age (please see Green Book chapter 19 for definitions of clinically at-risk groups) that are eligible for flu vaccination via the school programme because of their age will be offered immunisation at school. However, these children are also eligible to receive the vaccine in general practice.

Stock can be ordered via Immform for the National Flu Programme.
