Pharmacy

Richmond Pharmacology has integrated MHRA-licensed pharmacies located within each of their trial centres.

The pharmacies have been designed, commissioned and are operated in compliance with MHRA best practice and GMP guidelines.

The pharmacies are temperature controlled throughout and are connected to a sophisticated ‘auto-dialler’ alarm system. Richmond Pharmacology has the ability to store IMPs in a wide range of conditions to meet a sponsor’s requirements. Ambient and storage temperatures are continuously monitored and all temperature data is exported and signed off electronically. Stored temperature logs are available upon request.

Richmond Pharmacology pharmacies are staffed by 3 pharmacists with extensive experience of IMP preparation and dispensing for clinical trials. Pharmacy supervision is under the control of 3 licensed QPs
