John Bell & Croyden is launching a same-day emergency medicines supply service that will cover hospitals and clinics in Central London locations.

Hospitals and clinics in Central London locations will be able to receive same-day emergency supply of medicines and IV fluids, with orders delivered within 2 hours. The service will be available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4pm, with products charged at standard trade price and a £30 convenience charge per order.

James Gray, Healthcare Services Manager, said: “John Bell & Croyden Healthcare Services is uniquely placed to offer a combination of solutions to hospitals, clinics and other providers in Central London, and we are delighted to announce the introduction of our new emergency medicines supply service.

“As a sister company to AAH Pharmaceuticals we are proud to offer our new, tailored service to their existing customers in the Harley Street area, as our location allows us to process these requests more quickly and cost-effectively.

“We supply both licenced and unlicenced medicines at competitive prices, with the reassurance of the AAH network behind us to give us the most robust supply chain and help reduce out of stocks. Having access to the right medicines without having to worry about supply problems is crucial to delivering quality of care to patients. In instances where customers find themselves unexpectedly out of stock of a critical product, this is where we can help.”

James adds: “Our in-depth knowledge of licensing and regulations ensures we offer a reliable and ethical service wherever we supply. Additionally, our independence within this framework enables us to offer hospitals a truly personal service. We have experience of servicing major contracts as well as smaller orders, yet all receive the same high level of service by our team. As a part of McKesson UK – one of the oldest and largest healthcare companies in the world – we have unparalleled access to medicinal products and sundry items.”

The company holds a Wholesale Dealers Authorisation (WDA) for both Human and Veterinary products and operates a full stock supply service with no minimum order value. It supplies emergency medicines, including branded and generic pharmaceuticals, and unlicensed medicines for pain management, and palliative and critical care.

John Bell & Croyden’s emergency medicines supply service will be introduced from November 2nd, with all orders delivered within 2 hours, products charged at standard trade price and a £30 convenience charge per order. The service will be available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4pm.
