On the 8th October 2017, Nottingham regulatory solicitor Martin Hadley attended, by invitation, the Pharmacy Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.
It was clear from the show that the pharmacy profession brings together a great many different individuals and organisations. The exhibitors included the manufacturers of highly technical items for use in the pharmacy. These included robotic dispensing systems and data collection software programmes.
There were a significant number of manufacturers of pharmacy products including natural products, over the counter items and prescription only medications.
Professional bodies were represented including the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Association of Pharmacy Technicians. Furthermore, the association bodies of the Pharmacist Defence Association and National Pharmacy Association were there to help and advise their members.
It was enlightening to hear views on the profession from Julian de Bruxelles from the Independent Community Pharmacist publication. Similarly, Charlotte Basely from Today’s Pharmacist was able to give Martin an insight into current issues in the profession.
Martin was able to meet with fellow professional colleagues Jennifer Kelly and Kulzinder Garcha of HRC Law, and Laura Pyatt of Ansons Solicitors. They all offer valuable legal services to the pharmacist. These include related commercial work such as property and business sales and purchases, as well as advice on employment matters.
As a result of the meeting, Martin was able to highlight the complementary service that he is able to offer in advising on any regulatory issues that can arise.
Martin found the fair and extremely useful day so intends to return next year.
