What inspires us

Our mission is to serve patients and we know that our work is by no means ordinary. Our teams take pride in knowing that what they do has a positive impact on patients locally and around the world. Our achievements would not be possible without their efforts, driven by a powerful sense of shared purpose.

We empower staff to be involved in efforts to give back to the community. We encourage them to participate in initiatives run by the Amgen Foundation, including the Scholars Programme and Biotech Experience, which provide world-class science-education opportunities for students and teachers, as well as to volunteer with local charitable organisations through our Impact Day scheme, or to take part in the annual Myeloma UK London-Paris bike ride – a charity that we have raised more than £60,000 for over the past three years.
