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 of QA/RA.  I would recommend PCL to any organisation that needs support in their pharmaceutical operations. Vicky MuirQA/RA ManagerVygon
