The Need for Responsible Person (RP) Support

GDP Guidelines of 5 November 2013 on Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use (2013/C 343/01) stipulate the requirement of the Responsible Person (RP) as well as their duties and obligations expected of them by undertaking this role. The RP must have a high level of knowledge, demonstrate competence and deploy the right skills so that patients and healthcare professionals have the confidence and trust to use medicines.

Pharmacy Consulting Limited has been offering services to new UK Wholesale Distributors of Medicines since 2006.

We offer various levels of services:

  • Supporting Wholesalers New and Old to obtain their WDA and processes required within the application
  • Building Quality Systems in compliance with GDP as evidenced by many MHRA Inspections
  • Acting as an external support network for an internal RP
  • Acting on an ongoing basis as a contract RP
  • Training for new wholesalers
  • Update training for your Continuous Professional Development

Our strength is to develop a project plan bespoke to the client and their business needs, allowing us to collaborate together to achieve the end goal of maintaining a compliant wholesaling business with a WDA.

Why Consider Us for a Contract RP?

With extensive experience acting as RP for a number of businesses, you can be assured that we will provide up-to-date advice, a necessary service level and compliance with the MHRA regulations.  We live and breathe the pharmaceutical market and just a short telephone conversation with us will help to demonstrate the depths of our expertise.

Any WDA (H) needs an authorised RP by the competent authority, MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency).

Jackie (née Heneghan) Peck, John Finey and Kimberley Peck are our active RPs for several companies across the UK. Our consultants are approved by the MHRA to act as a Responsible Person for UK Wholesale Distributors of Medicines and we have supported and still support a number of new market entrants to the UK wholesale pharmaceutical market.

They work to prepare and submit applications to achieve a WDA. Our RPs works to develop a Quality System to cover the wholesaling of medicines in compliance with Good Distribution Practice as evidenced by successful MHRA Inspections.
