Pharmaceutical compounding (done in a quality controlled compounding laboratory) is the creation of a pharmaceutical product to suit the required needs of a patient. It may be necessary to change the medication from a solid to a liquid, to avoid a non-essential ingredient if a patient has an allergy, or to obtain the exact dose(s). There are many reasons to change or create medications to tailor them to patients requirements, it is a specialty skill and requires a special laboratory with special equipment.
The most important asset to compounding is the quality of ingredient itself. There are many variances on quality but Hamilton’s ingredients used are of the highest and reach good quality standards. Our guide is our governing body PCCA which makes sure standards and quality is met through training, education, equipment, devices and importantly ingredients. Hamilton’s is a PCCA member and with this comes great pride and passion towards the skill of compounding and the quality of product is proof of this.
