Tell us about your career with GSK
I’ve spent the majority of my career in HR. I started at GSK as an analyst within our Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability function, where I conducted the first analysis for the Partnership for Prevention programme. The programme is now being rolled out globally.
What was the thinking behind the P4P programme?
The P4P programme stemmed from a series of site visits in the emerging markets conducted by our US Medical Director. A consistent theme was that our employees did not have access to preventive healthcare services. It was their collective stories that were the true catalyst for the programme.
How does P4P work?
P4P offers a core set of preventive healthcare services to our employees and their benefits-eligible dependants at little to no cost. These services include immunisations, cancer screenings, preventive exams, prenatal care and tobacco cessation. P4P also includes some treatment options, which prevent further disease complications for example HIV, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. We encourage employees to work closely with their healthcare providers to determine which services are appropriate for them.
