Who are we
Galen Limited is a privately owned UK Specialty Pharma company, which markets branded prescription medicines within the UK & Ireland. Established in Craigavon (Northern Ireland) in 1968, Galen works in partnership with healthcare professionals & patients, by combining product innovation with competitive pricing. In addition to its sales & marketing expertise, Galen has development, manufacturing & regulatory capabilities through affiliation to the Almac Group, which is a global provider of pharmaceutical services to major Pharma, biotech & virtual companies.

Galen utilizes its knowledge of the changing healthcare environments in the UK & Ireland to optimize sales through endorsement by Healthcare Technology Assessment bodies & hospital/ primary care formularies. Once support of the key decision makers for medicines’ management has been obtained, prescribing uptake is driven through integrated sales & marketing activities to target healthcare professionals. In order to expand the product portfolio, Galen is actively seeking late stage opportunities for in-licensing to the UK & Ireland, & also to the US, where a commercial operation has recently been established. In addition, Galen is working with out-licensing partners, around the world, for products developed in conjunction with the Almac Group.

Currently, Galen is promoting a range of branded prescription products to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in the UK within its TrustSaver portfolio.

Target groups
Through its team of Healthcare Business Managers, Galen contacts key decision makers within the Clinical Commissioning Groups (in the UK) & Hospitals, as well as other health care professionals, including key opinion leaders, hospital specialists, general practitioners, pharmacists & nurses.
