Pharmacy is exempt, I here you say, well in the past we were, but as we start to develop new services this is often not the case. If a pharmacy starts to provide services such as “Treatment of disease and disorder or injury “as defined in schedule 1 of the Health and Social Care Act -they need to register with the CQC regulator. But surely pharmacy has always carried out a “Response to symptoms service “well yes, we have and this service is exempt, however employing directly a doctor or other healthcare professional to provide the service in your community pharmacy will if you do not register with CQC, potentially result in an unannounced CQC inspection. If pharmacies provide these services they must work to the highest standards and keep robust record which pharmacies traditionally do not do. We counter prescribe and advise on self-medication day to day but we do not keep robust records.
Pharmacy Consulting has been performing consultancy work for Vygon for several years, during that time they have provided us with a very professional and efficient service. PCL helped Vygon obtain their original Wholesale Dealers Licence and have provided Responsible Person (RP) support to our Quality Team ever since. PCL guided us successfully through our MHRA inspection. More recently, Jackie delivered GDP update training sessions for me and my deputy when I started in my new role as Head …
Testimonial from Vygon
Very informative, Jackie created a relaxed atmosphere which was conducive to active participation of the whole group. Jackie also provided a summary of the recent MHRA convention which was very beneficial.
Testimonial from David Burns
“Very informative training day.” “Highly recommended”
I found the information very useful and interesting. I will use the information given in the future for orders I do and also to check all relevant procedures that are needed.
Nicola Taylor from Survitec
Dawn ran a very informative session about GDP guidance and the role of the Responsible Person. This helped me understand further about my role as the Responsible Person and how to stay 100% compliant according to the guidelines. I also picked up key points on what to look for when looking at potential suppliers and warehouse facilities. All together an excellent session, worth every penny! Pharmaceutical Wholesaler Client
GDP/RP Training Course
The day was fun and I enjoyed the review of GDP requirements!
Nancy Nielson from Idis
I think the PCL course dovetails very well with wholesaling as it provides practical course material with a good eye to Quality Management, which is the concern of our company with the MHRA inspection process beginning soon.
Raul GP pharmacy manager Suffolk
Very good content and well presented.
Very useful day with a good overview of MHRA GMP & GDP process, procedures and roles and responsibilities. Isatec on site training – Andrew King
The trainer was highly skilled and professional. We now feel very well informed and supported to start our critical GDP inspection.
