Generic Products

What are Generics?

Branded pharmaceutical companies invest significant amounts of money in researching and developing new drugs. These new drugs enjoy patent protection for up to 20 years, which gives the manufacturer the exclusive right to market and sell their drug, and to receive a return on their original R&D investment. Once the patents on these new drugs expire, other drug companies (such as Consilient) can apply to manufacture a generic / bioequivalent product. As more companies manufacture the drug, increased competition drives down the price to customers and in turn, the cost to the NHS.

Generic medicines provide the same quality, safety and efficacy as the original brand name products and undergo strict audits before being licensed and given market approval by EU or national medicines authorities.
