What our delegates say

“An informative and educational course that helps us to reflect on our own practice and processes to improve services.”

“The course I attended was Excellent value for money! The day was jam packed full of useful information! Being able to interact with people from all over the country allowed my department to gain knowledge of how cleanrooms in other areas work which I can pass on to my unit to ensure the highest quality service and product manufacturing is undertaken."

“Relevant and engaging course, accessable to a wide variety of pharmacy staff all working in aseptics.”
