Re: Can I promote products online?

Dear Sir,

BMJ readers might also want to know that when the pharmaceutical industry makes payments to healthcare professionals, then under the ABPI Code of Practice, companies must disclose them publicly.

Companies do this via Disclosure UK – the ABPI’s searchable database that shows payments and benefits in kind made by the pharmaceutical industry to doctors, nurses and other health professionals and organisations in the UK.

Disclosure UK is part of our commitment to transparency in industry dealings with healthcare professionals.
