Our Markets

In the United Kingdom, our licensed pharmaceutical products are distributed twice daily to NHS hospitals and pharmacies.

Globally, we are one of the leading medical suppliers to aid agencies, charities and NGOs – including UNICEF, the Red Cross, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Medicines San Frontier (MSF), which is also known as Doctors Without Borders.

We also work with competent national authorities, internationally, to register our UK licensed Morningside products, as well as importers, distributors and wholesalers to bring them to market.

Our export success has been recognised by many awards including the UK’s most prestigious accolade – the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade

Innovation

Our innovative approach embraces challenges with heavy investment, including Research & Development and launching new niche molecules.

For both pharmacists and their patients the end result is greater choice.

Recent examples of new niche products launched, include: 

  • First to launch the generic version of the contraceptive pill (Levest) in the UK, in 2010, with further first generic launches, including Glycopyrronium Bromide tablets, Nitrofurantoin Capsules and Diclofenac mouthwash.
  • Modified ‘slow release’ or ‘prolonged release’ tablets and capsules.
  • New ways for patients to take their medicine, such as the use of under the tongue buccal and sublingual tablets, which dissolve in the mouth rather than being swallowed.

Our unique strategy is to manage the entire end-to-end process from research & development, to registration, to sales, marketing and export within the Morningside companies.

This pioneering product development approach was recognised by winning the Pharmacy Business Award for Innovation in Generics in 2017.
