South Devon NHS Foundation Trust improve quality at their Torbay pharmacy manufacturing unit
Torbay Pharmaceuticals Unit manufactures licensed pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical specials and CE marked products in their dedicated controlled facilities. The Unit meets Government regulations and EU directives, including MHRA and EU GMP requirements along with ISO requirements around the manufacturing and testing of these products - it is also certified to both ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003.
The Unit, part of South Devon Healthcare NHS Trust, required an electronic quality management system to help them manage their compliance activities to continue to meet the above standards and regulations. Their new system also had to be able to act as a central management database as the Unit was split over three sites.
Q-Pulse, Ideagen’s quality management product (QMS), is designed to encourage organisations such as Torbay PMU to focus on what is important by providing a suite of integrated modules to manage quality processes effectively and efficiently. Torbay PMU recognised that Q-Pulse would help them manage processes such as document control, corrective and preventive actions (CA/PA) and audit all electronically, removing duplication of effort and reducing the amount of paperwork they were previously using.
