Quality assurance in NHS hospital pharmacies supported by Cherwell

NHS Pharmaceutical QA Service Annual Symposium, 16-17 September 2014

Pharmacy manufacturing units in UK NHS hospitals and trusts have the same responsibility for quality and patient safety as a global drug manufacturer but with fewer people and resources. Cherwell Laboratories has confirmed its ongoing support in helping NHS QA professionals keep up-to-date by attending the NHS Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance Service Annual Symposium.

Experts from the company will be available to offer advice during the event at the Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth on 16 – 17 September 2014. A selection of Cherwell’s comprehensive product range will also be on display.

Organised by the NHS Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance Committee, the annual event brings together key pharmaceutical staff from across the UK. The 2014 programme offers a variety of presentations and workshops to educate and update delegates on current issues within the pharmacy industry, with a focus on 'Optimising Patient Care Safely'.

Cherwell Laboratories specialises in providing solutions for environmental monitoring and process validation within the pharmaceutical and related industries. The product range includes Redipor prepared media, a comprehensive selection of prepared agar plates, bottled media, broth bags, vials and ampoules developed to meet the regulatory requirements of industry and individual customer specifications. Cherwell also supplies SAS microbial air samplers for environmental monitoring within controlled environments such as cleanrooms plus a range of biological indicators for the validation of sterilisation processes.

'Our products offer a variety of environmental monitoring and process validation solutions to support quality assurance within the pharmaceutical industry,' Andrew Barrow, Sales Manager, commented. ‘Our attendance at events such as the NHS QA Symposium helps us understand the current challenges within the industry ensuring we can continue to offer the best advice and solutions.'
