Some recent feedback from our clients:


"Rushport set up an entire private pharmacy for us. They project managed and delivered every aspect needed and were an absolute pleasure to work with. I have been involved in many projects, both public and private, over many years and I can honestly say I have never found anyone who delivers as effectively."


"Rushport helped us with the opening of our new pharmacy (a new 40-hour licence) within our surgery. This was a whole new area of business for us and a steep learning curve. They provided us with knowledge and advice in planning and strategy, including detailed project planning to actually get us open on time, IT solutions, management and operational aspects, marketing and recommendations to maximise profits. He provided a valuable source of business and finance expertise that we continue to tap into since we have opened as we come across new issues. We couldn't have got everything done within our timeframe, and so efficiently, without this help."


"Rushport have been invaluable in helping us set up our pharmacy from scratch. With a deep knowledge of MHRA wholesale and GPhC standards they have guided us through the regulatory framework to obtain a registered pharmacy and Wholesale Dealers Authorisation. We feel confident that we are compliant in all aspects of running the pharmacy and can get on with the core business of making it flourish and grow.  The team are thorough, patient and professional and take the time to understand your particular business model. They can advise on everything from online pharmacy requirements, shopfitting and quality management systems to recruitment and marketing. I would advise anyone thinking of establishing a pharmacy to let Rushport help them get it right from the start."
