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 two agency partners AAH Pharmaceuticals Ltd 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.
