Glaxo Says It Will Stop Paying Doctors to Promote Drugs

Date: December 16, 2013
Author: Katie Thomas
QUOTE: The British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline will no longer pay doctors to promote its products and will stop tying compensation of sales representatives to the number of prescriptions doctors write, its chief executive said Monday, effectively ending two common industry practices that critics have long assailed as troublesome conflicts of interest.

Good on Glaxo for doing that. If I was a worker of at Glaxo, I would be very proud of this step taken by my company. Those doctors that promote drugs are very unethical, in my opinion.
