Fully compliant pharmacy waste disposal

We understand the strict regulations surrounding the possession, storage and destruction of controlled drug stocks. The Controlled Drugs (Supervision of Management and Use) Regulations 2006 require pharmacies to have Standard Operating Procedures for dealing with controlled drugs. These procedures must document the approved method for denaturing and disposing of controlled drugs.

As part of our service, Initial Medical provides your business with all the necessary disposal methods to ensure you are fully compliant.  Our fully trained operators are committed to delivering the highest levels of customer care to enable you to keep your organisation operating smoothly, hygienically and safely.
