V-Tech gets approval of Pharmacy Premises for the purpose of training

On the 18 December 2019 V-Tech Prescriptions Pharmacy – Y55915, was inspected by Mr James Patrick Dheyongera, a senior inspector with South African Pharmacy Council. Mr Dheyongera has more than 20 years experience with manufacturing pharmacy facilities, having dealt with many of the multi-national pharmaceutical companies. He showed great interest in the V-Tech Prescriptions Pharmacy facility and spent considerable time asking questions to understanding the concept of compounded medicine and the nature of the veterinary business.

The inspection focused on GPP, the prospective tutor, the facility and reference books and ensured that all policies and procedures were in place and up to date.

After an extremely thorough and successful 4-hour inspection, Mr Dheyongera awarded V-Tech Prescriptions Pharmacy a high ’A’ grading.
The approval is issued in terms of the Pharmacy Act 53 of 1974 and is valid from the 18th December 2019 until the 31st December 2022.

V-Tech Prescriptions Pharmacy is now approved to train Pharmacist Interns and Pharmacist Assistants in accordance with the provisions of the Pharmacy Act, 1974. This creates an opportunity for both external candidates and V-Tech personnel.

For years vets across Africa have not had access to quality compounded medicine to assist them in practice. In November 2019, after a year of planning, Dr Ian Oberholzer spent time in the V-Tech Midrand facility. The objective being to learn all that V-Tech has to offer practising vets. After days of technical training, in V-Tech Prescriptions Pharmacy, he returned to Windhoek full of ideas and with a wish list and was ready to take our plan forward.

On the 7th of November 2019, at the Namibian Veterinary Congress held in Swakopmund, V-Tech was very proud to finally announce the exciting new joint venture between V-Tech and Novecy Pharmacy. The congress was attended by Dale Parrish and Johan Oosthuyse from V-Tech and Ian Oberholzer and Dwayne Thompson from Novecy. Novecy Pharmacy is based in Windhoek, Namibia, and will extend the V-Tech footprint into Sub-Saharan Africa.

Combining the V-Tech experience, expertise and knowledge with the resources and great service offered by Novecy Pharmacy, V-Tech will now be able to service veterinary clients and their patients outside of South Africa.

The initial range will be limited as the market is being established, and needs and opportunities identified, but the ‘phase 2’ compound list is taking form. V-Tech, together with Novecy Pharmacy, will ensure the future success of veterinary compounding across Africa.

Vets can order their compounded preparations through V-Tech at pharmacist@v-tech.co.za or contact Dale at dale@v-tech.co.za for more information. V-Tech now also has a fully staffed Call Centre, +27 (0) 87 1505925, and the team is ready to support vets within and outside the borders of South Africa.
