There’s a simple purpose that sits at the heart of our
business: to enable people with life-altering conditions to lead better lives.
We want to be the company that imagines and leads the future of healthcare for
people with life-altering conditions, creating value for society
Imagining and leading the future
Our success so far stems from our single-minded determination
to focus on our patients and our willingness to adapt to changing environments.
We're motivated to put ourselves in patient’s shoes and imagine new ways to meet
challenges and achieve a better future for the people we help, and society at
Our purpose, mission and strategy
Since Shire’s formation just over 25 years ago, we remain true
to the purpose that inspired us from our early days to help people with
life-altering conditions lead better lives.
Our caring approach has made us a leader in many of our therapeutic areas, but
we want to achieve more. Looking forward, we need to develop even more
groundbreaking, new ways to transform more patients’ lives, adding value to
society, while delivering value to our stakeholders. This purpose keeps patients
and their needs at the centre of everything we do.
