How Cycle is holistically supporting patients with rare diseases

Our patients are at the heart of everything we do, and our aim is to deliver treatments and services to the underserved rare disease patient community. We firmly believe in a holistic approach as the best way to make meaningful impact and we do this with a clear focus on our patients, their caregivers, families, and support networks.

From the earliest stage of development, we understand the importance of listening and integrating the voices and needs of our patients and their families. We continue this holistic approach after the approval process to ensure we continue to listen, learn and meet the unique needs of our community.

Our talented and deeply dedicated team understand the importance of caring and making a difference at every stage as they commit to providing patients with treatments, fair access, disease education at every life stage and patient support services.

Holistic approach

As part of our holistic approach, we make long-term commitments to care for and support our patients and their caregivers. We are committed to:

Helping patients with rare diseases irrespective of their ability to pay for treatment. We want to address the toughest imbalances in access to medicine by making treatment available through our Free Goods Programme. Such is our commitment to this mission that it is embedded within our company’s constitutional documents (Articles of Association). To learn more please visit our Free Goods Programme.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

We are committed to building a truly inclusive, diverse, and equitable culture for our employees and one which reflects our core values. To effectively serve, find solutions for and support our patients, we are committed to and accountable for embracing equal opportunity and diversity.

We are committed to building an inclusive and diverse team representing all cultures and backgrounds, with as wide a range of perspectives as possible, and harnessing industry-leading skills. We aim to create opportunities and reduce barriers for everyone, and we believe that the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. By creating and fostering a workforce that reflects and contributes to the diverse community in which we work, we will help to improve the lives of employees, our patients and their communities.

We are proud of our efforts on equal pay, but we recognise equal pay alone is not enough. It is one part of our equal opportunities journey and we are committed to levelling the playing field throughout the entire employee experience, from recruitment and onboarding to ongoing employee success.

Our focus on ethics and integrity

We encourage our colleagues to think differently, challenge conventional wisdom, and foster innovation, while always being guided by the best interest of patients. To do this effectively and impactfully we are committed to our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and the belief that the Code must be lived in a way that is respectful of each other, our stakeholders, and applicable laws, regulations, and industry standards. Our Code of Conduct is our guide to operating with integrity around the world. It sets expectations for everyone who works at Cycle.

For this reason, we have developed a comprehensive Compliance Program. To learn more, please visit our Compliance and Ethics page.
