Good Distribution Practice ( GDP ) including Responsible Person ( RP) Roles and Responsibilities Training
Our one-day Introduction to GDP Training provides an overview into the Good Distribution Practice Guidelines, the roles and Responsibilities of the Responsible Person (RP) and the competent authorities that enforce the rules and regulations to ensure compliance when handling and distributing medicinal products.
The pharmaceutical industry is a highly regulated sector where the paramount focus on minimising the risk to patient safety has led to significant changes in recent years.
The course would be beneficial for any personnel involved in pharmaceutical distribution looking to obtain a general understanding of GDP and the regulations a Wholesale Distributor of medicinal products must adhere to. The course will also provide an insight into the competent authority and their role in ensuring patient safety.

Here are some kind words from attendees of previous RP training courses …
Our trainer Jackie was extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. If I ever require help or further assistance, I would not hesitate to contact Jackie and I would certainly recommend her for the services as a consultant and higher knowledge.
Our trainer Jackie was extremely knowledgeable and the way how the material was presented was very interesting. I found her also very helpful, explaining every questions and doubts perfectly. I would highly recommend Jackie as a trainer and also as a consultant.
Both Jackie and Sandeep made it really easy to understand the content – they encouraged discussion but also made sure that focus was given to areas specific to the attendees.
Overall I enjoyed the course and found it far less overwhelming than I expected.
