Clinical Pharmaceutics and Technical Services within the NHS in Wales ensure specialist pharmaceutical products are prescribed, formulated, dispensed or manufactured for some of our most vulnerable patients in settings such as: Cancer services, ITU, HDU and Neonatal Intensive Care.
Each specialist unit offering these services must comply with the EU rules governing Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and the Quality Assurance of Aseptic Preparation Standards (QAAPS). The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and our Regional Quality Assurance Specialist Pharmacist, audit to these rules and guidance to ensure compliance.
Learning and sharing experience from self-inspection, internal and external audit is a valuable exercise and the topics for this learning event will focus on recent regional audit findings and risk reduction priorities.
