Medical and Educational Goods and Services (MEGS)

About our MEGS offer

The BMS-Pfizer Alliance is committed to supporting healthcare professionals and the NHS to drive improvements in patient care and help achieve the best results for patients. One of the ways in which we do this is by providing Medical and Educational Goods and Services (MEGS) to organisations that are comprised of health professionals and/or provide healthcare or conduct research. 

The MEGS that we provide are in the form of financial grants or services delivered by a BMS-Pfizer Alliance colleague or a third-party supplier engaged by Bristol-Myers Squibb Ltd and/or Pfizer Ltd. MEGS are intended to either enhance patient care or benefit the NHS and maintain patient care. They cannot be linked to the prescribing or use of a specific medicine. As a result, the BMS-Pfizer Alliance’s involvement is strictly limited to the provision or delivery of the MEGS grant or service and we do not receive any direct benefit in return. MEGS do not constitute an inducement to prescribe, supply, administer, recommend, buy or sell any medicine.

Information on MEGS is contained within the ABPI Code of Practice and can be explored in interactive form on the Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA) website

The BMS-Pfizer Alliance MEGS are made available to healthcare professionals, providers and organisations, via a number of programmes, each subject to any stated criteria and available capacity.  More information on BMS-Pfizer Alliance MEGS is available below.
