It was a great pleasure to deal with Pharmacy Consulting Ltd (PCL).
I would recommend PCL to everyone especially young entrepreneurs about to embark upon owning their own pharmacy, be it in community pharmacy or Internet pharmacy.
I valued the advice and motivation that PCL has given me to pursue my dreams.
PCL’s knowledge in pharmacy regulation is vast and up to date and I will definitely use PCL again for my future projects

I found Pharmacy Consulting Ltd’s (PCL) input into the planning and installation of our ARX V Max extremely beneficial to the project.
The senior consultant from PCL met with me, the ARX project manager, and members of my shop fitting team, and we discussed the new pharmacy planned layout from PCL’s automation experience. This was useful as having previously worked with robots, and also being a pharmacist he could provide valuable advice on where the machine outputs would be best positi…
