Mustafa Bhaiji from Manton Pharmacy
A very informative overview of GDP and the role of the RP. Great to be able to discuss GDP issues with Brian and with others on the course.

Rima Gupta from Mode Pharma
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!
