GSK in Dungarvan, which produces a variety of ‘over-the-counter’ pharmacy and oral care products, is the global home of Panadol. Around 6.5 billion Panadol tablets are produced in Dungarvan each year – that’s 200 Panadol tablets a second – exporting to over 70 countries worldwide.
Our Dublin headquarters is home to our Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Healthcare businesses. Our Pharma business is a leader in respiratory medicines and the largest provider of vaccines to the HSE in Ireland, while the consumer healthcare business is a market leader in both the pain and oral care markets.
Resourcing a progressive and sustainable healthcare system is extremely challenging. At GSK, we want to play our part in helping ensure Irish patients and consumers can access the healthcare they need. We want to work in partnership with government, policy makers, healthcare professionals, patients and citizen groups. We all have our part to play in tackling the challenges Irish healthcare faces, and we hope by working together openly, together we can help create a healthier Ireland.
