Working together to protect us all against future pandemics

Today the Prime Minister is hosting a summit meeting with the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies to discuss how Government, Industry and the NHS can work together to tackle emerging variants and future pandemics.

  • Our life sciences sector has been a shining light in our response to COVID-19 and with scientists working tirelessly to learn more about the new variant, it is vital that we are equipped to tackle future healthcare challenges.
  • That is why the Prime Minister has convened a summit with leading pharmaceutical companies to discuss how we can work together to tackle the pandemic and future health challenges like dementia, cancer, and mental health – backed by nearly £500 million announced by the sector today, which will create hundreds of skilled jobs and drive prosperity across the UK.
  • This summit will help to cement our status as a science superpower – so we can tackle the issues of today and tomorrow.
