GSK’s $15m fees data go online
The Financial Times is reporting that GlaxoSmithKline paid a staggering £9 Million in speaking and consulting fees to US doctors in the second quarter of this year.
GSK's website now shows 121 pages listing more than 3,700 doctors who had received fees for work including speaking to other doctors, appearing at conferences and consultancy.
The Financial Times writes:
"The details are published as pressure intensifies for the industry to highlight substantial support to doctors, whose authority can help prescription sales. Different draft US healthcare bills threaten to make disclosures compulsory."
This documentary made by investigative journalist, Shelley Jofre, further highlights how influential key opinion leaders are paid by Glaxo to basically promote the use of their drugs.
