Our research has indicated that many of your colleagues at hospices around the country are finding it increasingly challenging to obtain a consistent, reliable and legal supply of stock medication.

Many medication suppliers are finding it a challenge to meet the increasingly stringent regulations imposed by the MHRA with its Wholesale Dealer’s Licence.

The impact of this is that some hospices are having to obtain medication from various supply sources.

Supply systems like this, often using three or four different sources of medication, are usually overly expensive, complex and, most importantly, very time-consuming for nursing staff to manage effectively.

We have a dedicated team working closely with our hospice clients, who can help hospices overcome some of the challenges they are currently facing.

This year we are also supporting two excellent events organised by Hospice UK.

‘Thinking Differently’ Clinical Leaders Conference (June 2019)

In June, we attended the Clinical Leaders Conference, ‘Thinking Differently’, hosted by the Executive Clinical Leads in Hospice and Palliative Care (ECLiHP), which is a Hospice UK network.

We were delighted with the positive reception we received, and it was a pleasure for us to meet and speak with so many of you in person.

Hospice UK National Conference (Nov 2019)

We are also delighted to be attending all three days of Hospice UK’s flagship event, their national conference in Liverpool in November.

Their theme for the conference is ‘Dying for Change’. We want to bring positive change to the hospice movement throughout the UK, making consistent, reliable and legal medication supply available to all hospices.

Please do make some time to visit our stand at the conference. We would be delighted to discuss the ways we might be able to help you, including the supply of medication, Ashtons Live View and electronic prescribing.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about medication supply or the pharmacy services we provide, please call us on 01273 224604.


We will be at the Hospice UK ‘Dying for Change’ national conference from 20th-22nd November in Liverpool.

If you have any queries or would just like to chat about how we can help with your service provision, please don’t hesitate to come and visit our stand!
