A pharmacy that is ‘dedicated to private prescribers’ called Galenic Laboratories, trading as Roseway Labs, has launched into the aesthetic sector.
The company supplies licensed, unlicensed and compounded medications, as well as vitamins, minerals, supplements and diagnostic testing kits. The unlicensed medicines may include items that are approved in other countries but haven’t been licensed by the NHS, for example, natural desiccated thyroid drugs.
Elizabeth Philp, CEO, said, “Roseway Labs is the doctor's dispensary. Many frustrated prescribers want to offer effective, personalised medicines that just aren't available in the UK or are available at an inflated price; with Roseway Labs they now can.”
According to Roseway Labs, prescribers may either send prescriptions through their e-prescribing system or email copies with a follow up of the original in the post. Although based in London, the company delivers to all locations across the UK and can post internationally, however there may be restrictions on import due to local customs.
Philp concludes, “We are regularly adding products to our range, as we learn what is important to our customers, who typically work in the fields of dermatology, aesthetics, hair loss and bio-identical hormones."
