One business which has won awards for its innovative approach is Loughborough based Morningside Pharmaceuticals, which specialises in manufacturing and supplying generic and branded medicines to UK hospitals and pharmacies, as well as globally through aid agencies.
In 2017 Morningside won the Innovation in Generics category at the UK Pharmacy Business Awards, for using innovation to embrace challenges with heavy investment towards launching new niche generic molecules.
In 2010 Morningside was the first company to launch the generic version of the contraceptive pill in the UK. An innovative approach has also been taken to bring choice to both pharmacists and patients, by developing new ways for patients to take their medicines, whether it be slow release formulations or using different delivery methods.
Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, Chief Executive of Morningside Pharmaceuticals, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting this year’s Innovation Awards because one of the keys to any successful business is continuous improvement in line with customers’ needs. Innovation embodies the improvement of something that has come before, and it’s the companies that do this best, which are the ones that will ultimately have sustained success.
"This often means considering measured risks, such as taking a holistic approach to the whole business while ensuring investment is made in people and training. Ultimately the businesses which seek to make continuous improvements, close the biggest gaps and identify the newest opportunities.”
