How many people know the 8th of November is World Quality Day?

I bet not many!

The intention of World Quality Day is to raise awareness of the important contribution Quality makes to products used or consumed by customers.

A quick search on google provides a plethora of captions for what quality means. Ranging from

“Quality is a race that has no finish line” to “Quality begins on the inside and works its way out”

The oxford dictionary defines Quality as “the standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind; the degree of excellence of something”

Here at Rokshaw we move these statements forward and use the concept of Quality to ensure that our medicinal products are fit for purpose. Every time!

Ensuring compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice and Good Distribution Practice is key to our success in the supply of unlicensed medicines to vulnerable patients throughout the UK but compliance alone, for Rokshaw, is not enough.

Without effective leadership from the senior management team, the principles we instil in our staff and processes would not enable us to do what we do every single day.

Having the right leadership approach, staff attitude and procedures in place are essential and something we at Rokshaw excel at.

So, should quality be acknowledged and celebrated?

Absolutely yes.

Should we have a dedicated day of the year to focus on Quality?

In my opinion No.

Why? Quality is something we strive for every single day, not just one day a year.

Rokshaw Laboratories - Final Edit JPEG

 

Rokshaw Laboratories can announce the following changes and provide an analysis for the Part VIIIB Specials Drug Tariff, with effect of November 1st 2018.

The following changes are:

  • 1 Product Added
  • 0 Products Added
  • 208 Price Decreases
  • 45 Price Increases
  • 2 Prices Remain the Same

The 1 New Product added to the Drug Tariff is: Acitretin 5mg/5ml oral suspension

In summary, the November 2018 Specials Drug Tariff has shown a considerable decrease in the overall average sales price (now at £88.27) with big lines such as Omeprazole Suspensions, Melatonin Solutions and Spironolactone Suspensions showing decreases that will provide excellent value for the NHS moving into the new quarter. The November 2018 update has continued the trend of big price decreases across the product list and we predict that this trend will continue with prices getting even lower in the upcoming updates.

Rokshaw Laboratories also predicts that despite only 1 product has been added in the November update, the upcoming February 2019 update will see an addition of more lines to ensure that more prices are appropriately moderated across the Specials industry.

 

What can Rokshaw Laboratories Do?

 

Despite these changes, Rokshaw Laboratories will always be able to provide your pharmacy with a competitive price on Drug Tariff that allows for an ethical earning opportunity for community pharmacy and value for the NHS.
