Our state of the art facilities are regulated and licensed by the MHRA. We manufacture and supply ‘Specials’ to Hospitals, Pharmacies, Pharmaceutical Wholesalers, Dispensing Doctors and Buying Groups. We supply Drug Tariff and Non-Drug Tariff lines.
‘Specials’ are unlicensed medicines designed to meet the individual patient’s clinical needs where a licensed medicine is not pertinent to their treatment. Pharmaceutical ‘Specials’ differ from licensed medicines that can be found in a pharmacy as regular medicines need to be licensed before they are available. However, as some patients have certain clinical requirements that a licensed product cannot meet, the UK law allows the manufacture and supply of unlicensed medicines subject to certain requirements.
A ‘Special’ may be prescribed to a patient in the below situations:
- Where a patient cannot swallow tablets or capsules
- Where a different concentration or strength is required
- A different formulation is required
- Where a patient is allergic to an excipient
- Patient has a specific intravenous nutritional need
- Patient is unable to eat
- A specific formulation is required
