Orridge PS are part of Orridge & Co, one of Europe’s largest stock taking companies. We specialise in pharmaceutical stocktaking and over several decades have built up an excellent reputation throughout the healthcare community.

What sectors of Pharmacy do you provide services to?

We cover all sectors of the pharmaceutical industry, and this includes Pharmacies and Doctors surgeries, from independents through to national groups. Both Hospital and Supermarket Pharmacies. The former group includes Mental Health areas, Outpatient wards, any of the specialist units along with the main hospital pharmacies. Furthermore, we capture data for both Robotic Pharmacies and the Pharmaceutical manufacture and Supply Chain industries which can vary significantly in scale and complexities.

How do you provide the service?

Using the latest barcode scanning technology, we capture data for each and every product within a site. This takes out assumptions of grouping similar stock together and so provides an accurate valuation. The practices we use prioritise dispensing over the stocktake as we understand that your patients should always come first. The staff we supply for a stocktake are trained pharmacy members of our team and have the full support of a dedicated management structure behind them.

So what can I get out of having a stocktake?

For every stocktake we provide a full category stock breakdown; this provides you with valuation information by location e.g. Fridge, CD cabinet, dispensary. We can also provide a date-checking service when completing a stocktake to identify any short-dated stock along with completing delivery checks on the day of the stocktake and comparing this to any delivery notes.

I want to sell / buy a pharmacy so can you help me?

Yes, we can. We specialise in providing accurate pharmacy valuations for these circumstances, and many others, and our dedicated team understand the pressures that these events can cause. Dedicated account managers will liaise with you every step of the way so that should a short notice postponement be needed along with a new date, we understand this and will work with you to ensure that you get what you need. There’s no hidden costs or charges to this work as everything will be made clear during the start of your journey with Orridge.

Do I need to provide you with anything before a stocktake?

All we require is an approximate value of the stock that you hold which enables us to provide the correct resource to count it all in a timely manner. Our pharmacy database has been developed and maintained in house using leading industry data sets alongside boots on the ground information. This leads us to provide you with a suite of reports that will be customised to your needs.
