This film asks if we can rest easy with Stephen Whitehead’s assurance that “Big Pharma” corruption is all in the past? Mr Whitehead has repeatedly insisted that this is the case. Stephen Whitehead is head of the ABPI (the organisation behind the ABPI “code”). This code has had quite a lot of criticism: bmj.com/content/344/bmj.e2910 and bmj.com/content/346/bmj.f770
Apart from Stephen Whitehead, the names to note are: Chris Viehbacker and Jean Pierre Garnier. All three seem to be doing quite well for themselves despite this £3 billion lawsuit. This has to be terribly wrong?
