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.
