More recently we have launched a service to assist community and hospital pharmacists source unusual products to help better meet individual patient needs. Occasionally, a pharmacist will require an item that is not a regular line and therefore not stocked by a mainline wholesaler. In this instance, our team is able to step in and help find a ‘special obtain’ on your behalf.

This involves us producing and sending all of our pharmacy customers a free of charge monthly report summarising all out-of-pocket expenses relating to Specials.
