ABPI Scotland was established at the reconvening of the Scottish Parliament in 1999. The ABPI Scotland team works to represent the interests of our member companies to stakeholders here in Scotland.
We ensure that bodies such as the Scottish Government and NHS Scotland are kept informed about the issues affecting our sector and we also work closely with member companies to support their relations ensuring that they are supported in navigating the landscape of a devolved Scotland within the United Kingdom.

What is the value of the pharmaceutical industry to Scotland?
The wider pharmaceutical sector itself employs 5,600 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs and, once spill over effects are accounted for, generates £1.8bn of Gross Value Added in Scotland.
On its own, the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals employs around 4,000 people, with significant employment in rural areas.
The sector has complex supply chains and every pound of value created by the pharmaceutical sector, in turn, generates further value and jobs.
For every 10 jobs in the wider pharmaceutical industry a further 17 are supported in the wider economy.
