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.
I am new to GDP and the trainer was very patient with my endless questions and answered them all with rounded practical answers that i can take back to my workplace and implement.

Testimonial from David Burns
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 am glad that I contacted Pharmacy Consulting Limited (PCL). Jackie Peck helped me in understanding all aspects of community and internet pharmacy. She was helpful in conducting survey, preparing business plan and negotiation with wholesalers etc. She was extremely approachable and provided invaluable advice. She was proactive in helping and was very flexible. I will highly recommend Pharmacy Consulting Limited to all especially young entrepreneurs. It is a money well spent.
