Revolade® (eltrombopag olamine) Your Choice is a ‘dispense and deliver’ service provided by Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK Ltd., in partnership with Pharmaxo Pharmacy Service Ltd. and Lloyds Pharmacy Clinical Homecare Ltd.

It is a new patient support programme which is provided for your stable immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) patients, who are likely to remain on their current established dose of Revolade.

 

What are the benefits of Revolade Your Choice?

Patients receive their Revolade at home or another convenient location instead of in hospital, so they can continue with their normal daily routine and avoid unnecessary inconvenience:

 

Improve consistency in treatment

 

Improve patient’s quality of life

 

Save time and money for patients and their families, with no travel costs or missed days of work to pick up medication

 

Reduce the need for unnecessary hospital appointments

 

Patients can choose to have their medicine delivered to a preferred location, i.e. their place of work

 

 

How does it work?

Your patients will receive their Revolade through a courier service, as and when they need more medicine.

Homecare providers do not offer any incentives or encouragement to prescribe Revolade as part of this service.

There are no recommendations as to how the patient should take their medicine or manage their condition.

All further medical advice must be sought through and directed to the patient’s regular healthcare professional.

 

 

How can you set your patients up with Revolade Your Choice?

1.

Complete an Expression of Interest form which you can receive from your local Novartis Disease Area Specialist.

2.

The set up process will then be initiated between the homecare providers and the hospital trust homecare pharmacy team.

3.

Once the service is available in your trust, the relevant homecare prescription will be made available.

 

What support is available for my patients through this service?

A range of resources are available to your patients to support them while managing their ITP. These will be provided to patients in their first delivery of Revolade. You may request further items through your local Disease Area Specialist or by contacting Novartis.
