From a humble beginning, we have grown to become one of the leading players in the UK's Specials market. Today we operate from three separate Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliant sites in Prudhoe, Northumberland. As you would expect, all of our state-of-the-art facilities are licensed by the MHRA and we provide drug tariffed and non-tariffed products.

Our purpose-built cleanrooms have a number of distinct manufacturing rooms for coal tar preparations, external products, internal products and potent products. This enables us to manufacture within a safe, contained and controlled environment.

Cutting-edge technology combined with traditional drug-making techniques is our special formula for being able to offer you virtually all non-sterile dosage forms for Specials supply (including Specials Drug Tariff items) and non-sterile IMPs for hospital-based clinical trials. These include:

  • Oral liquids
  • Capsules
  • Sachets
  • Oral syringes
  • Medicated lollipops
  • Allergy testing kits/solutions
  • Ointments/Creams/Lotions
  • External lotions/paints
  • Potent products such as cytotoxics
  • Ear drops
  • Nasal drops
  • Disinfectants
  • Enema solutions
  • Pessaries
  • Suppositories
  • Coal tar products
  • Antibiotics

We also supply vet specials, sterile products, special obtains and make a variety of toxic products in a range of dosage forms. New products are researched and developed by our pharmacists and technicians on a daily basis. We now have thousands of formulations on file and create, on average, 30 new formulations each week.
