Patient support programmes (PSP) are set up by companies to help patients and /or healthcare professionals better manage disease and optimise treatment. It is imperative that patient safety is a priority in PSPs and that the company is able to meet ethical, legal and regulatory obligations including pharmacovigilance (PV) requirements.  These notes are a compilation of best practice, based on current legislative requirements and PV inspection findings.  They have been developed by the ABPI and shared with the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
