A new approach to medicines management
Our specialist clinical pharmacists provide clinical advice to support regulatory compliance and help improve medicines management for our clients.
At the same time our pharmacy support team is focused on the rapid supply and delivery of the right medicines at the right time.
We add further value to our clients’ services by offering carefully developed training packages.
We support patient involvement, helping where possible to provide individuals with information and control of the medication they are receiving; and building on evidence which shows that informed patients have a more positive hospital experience and a better clinical outcome.
If you would like further information about the ways we can help you achieve this, please call us on 0345 222 3550.
Maintaining best practice and professional standards in medicines management is crucial to the delivery of high quality patient care.
We ensure our clients are using medicines management policies and processes that meet these standards and are in line with regulatory requirements.

- Involving patients in their choice of treatment

They support compliance goals and help enhance skills and continuous development.

Every course we run is designed to promote good practice in medicines management and reinforce the existing skills of your teams in order to reduce the risk of medication errors.
Finding medication suppliers can be time-consuming and complex, whether it’s for named patients or for stock.
Prior to becoming our clients, we find many hospitals need to use a combination of different suppliers, resulting in increased paperwork and multiple deliveries.
We have simplified that.
- A one stop shop
- Easy online ordering
- Legal stock medication supply
- Named patient supplies
- Fulfilling your orders reliably and accurately
- Helping you manage specialist medication
