Collective Response to Patient Safety during COVID

The pandemic created significant challenges to the ongoing management of AZ’s Clinical Trials, which deliver significant value to our patients and society. Solutions had to be implemented at record pace, to change the way we ran our clinical trials and protected our staff. Procurement set up a cross functional team that supported the business with vital parts of the implementation process and helped secure key products and services in half the time of normal sourcing activities; whilst still protecting our patients safety and AZ’s license to operate.
