Unlicensed medicines and supply for market shortages

A core part of our business is the export of unlicensed medicines. These are medicines which are licensed in their country of manufacture (such as the UK), but are not licensed in the importing country.

Allowing pharmacies and clinicians around the world to supply their patients with the medicines they urgently need. This could be a one-off shipment or a regular delivery of several containers.

We can also supply bespoke and specially prepared medicines which have been prescribed by a doctor or pharmacist when a licensed product is not available. As part of our service, you will be allocated a dedicated Account Team available to answer any specific questions you may have and who will monitor your requirements from the first point of contact to despatch.

Managed access and named patient supply

CHAPPER healthcare has over 40 years’ experience in managing the supply of named patient medicines.

The supply of unlicensed medicines is highly regulated. However, in certain circumstances they can be supplied on a ‘named-patient’ basis:

  • If the product has yet to gain a licence for use in a specific disease area;
  • If the product has yet to be licensed by the regulatory body;
  • If the product is used to treat a rare disorder, often classified as an orphan drug.

We are able to offer tailored named-patient programmes, to meet the needs of all of our clients, utilising our infrastructure and knowledge employed throughout our pharmacy wholesale business.

Due to our long-established relationships with leading pharmaceutical suppliers, we are in a very strong position when it comes to supplying medicines, even highly restricted ones, on a named-patient basis.

Our staff are well aware that with named-patient medicines, the health and wellbeing of an individual is dependent on their ability to supply the correct medicine at the correct time and they take great pride in ensuring that this happens.

Clinical trials

The sourcing of drugs for clinical trials, whether as comparators or otherwise, can be a time-consuming and difficult process.

Our clinical trials supply service will assist you, ensuring that all of your clinical trials needs are met by a dedicated, experienced Account Team, who will personally source, price and oversee your delivery.

Our clinical trial service includes:

  • An experienced and highly-trained sole point of contact
  • The facility to source medicines from all around the globe on a batch specific or single batch basis
  • A logistics team able to deliver world-wide, providing a first-class packaging and freight service tailored specifically to your requirements.

At CHAPPER Healthcare we pride ourselves on delivering a first class, quality service to our clients.
