I have known Martin Phypers for many years dating back to the time when he was with Orridge and handling pharmacy sales. Since then I have known him in his capacity as the acquisitions manager for Moss and subsequently Boots prior to setting up PSC. In the time that I have known Martin not only did I have my own pharmacy group but I was also chairman of the Local Pharmacy Committee as well as being on various subcommittees. I was able to see Martin in action representing his company and I was always impressed with his submissions both in terms of the content and the way in which they were presented.
In the recent period I have employed Martin's services both in applications for new pharmacy contracts and for pharmacy sales. His friendly and personable nature together with his comprehensive understanding of pharmacy regulations has been of considerable value to me. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services and I am unaware of any equivalent service
I have known Kevin and Martin personally for many years and always found them to be very professional and trustworthy.
Four years ago they were instrumental in arranging for a national multiple to sell me the NHS contract for one of their branches. It was a difficult transaction but PSC were instrumental in brokering the agreement and driving it through.
More recently I spotted an opportunity to apply for a new contract in an old-established town with a growing population. PSC were very balanced in the advice they gave and honest about our chances of success. It was always going to be a big ask to get the contract. I must say that Kevin’s background research and thoroughness were really impressive. We were up against a large multiple and Kevin really impressed me on the day. To my delight the NHSLA approved our application via an oral hearing.
I look forward to many more years of working with PSC.
We appointed PSC as our preferred agents for the sale of our company. We found Kevin and Martin to be extremely professional and discreet throughout the whole process. They made the initial approaches to prospective buyers, facilitated meetings, and closed the deal with the successful purchasers. We were kept informed from start to finish. We were also impressed with their diplomatic mediation skills during the predictable legal sparring of any business sale.
We were pleased to be the first Pharmacy Group sale for PSC, and we have already recommended Kevin and Martin to colleagues who are contemplating an exit strategy. With the level of service they provide, the Pharmacy Sales area of the company should flourish
We found Kevin Harrall a most wonderful consultant to work with.
Having worked with him on our first NHS contract and again on a relocation process, we cannot better recommend using PSC Consultancy! The knowledge that Kevin has is phenomenal, making the whole process seem totally seamless.
We would certainly not hesitate in using his services again.
We engaged PSC to represent us in the appeal against our application to move premises in Worthing. The Application was granted by NHS England. However, it was decided by the Appeals Authority than an oral hearing was required to decide the matter.
We won the Oral hearing of the Appeals Panel against top quality representation for the Appellant and this was, in large part, due to the representation we received from PSC. Kevin Harrall, in discussions with us, had prepared our case with the utmost care, knowledge and imagination. He then delivered our case with clarity and in a wholly convincing manner. He answered all the Panel’s questions calmly and fully and was robust in defence of our case against questions, principally, from the Appellant, but also from other interested parties. He knew when to say something and even more importantly, when not to.
It is tempting, when faced with an oral hearing, to think that one can represent oneself. I mean, how difficult can it be? Well the answer is that it is very easy to say the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to talk too much and irritate the panel. It is worth every penny to be professionally represented by someone who understands how to make a case and who also understands how best to deliver that case to the Panel in a calm and confident manner. In fact if I were to ever want to move again, I would engage PSC to make the initial application, so as to render the grounds for any possible future hearing unnecessary. I would recommend PSC, unreservedly
PSC acted for us in our bid to gain a pharmacy licence in Surrey. Throughout the process, we found Kevin to be experienced, knowledgeable and extremely professional. Our application was complex and drawn out, but Kevin was able to anticipate all potential obstacles and always came up with successful solutions. We found their advice invaluable and they were always approachable and easy to contact. The outcome of the application would not have been positive without their input, and as well as hoping to work with them again in the future, we have great pleasure in being able to highly recommend their services
PSC acted for me in the sale of my pharmacy recently. The process is long and complicated and throughout I found both Kevin and Martin to be very helpful and knowledgeable. They achieved a good price for the sale and they were there through the inevitable problems that cropped up, responding quickly even at weekends, helping to reduce my stress levels! I would certainly recommend their services for selling a pharmacy. Thanks to both of you!
Many thanks for all your help. Very professional throughout. Please keep in touch as we continue to develop the Pharmacy here at Peasmarsh.
PSC have been invaluable in helping us with our new pharmacy project from negotiating the terms of our lease through to advice on our Pharmacy contract and the GPhC registration process. Without their help I am in no doubt that we would not have been successful. They provided expert advice every step of the way and were always available at the end of the phone for guidance. We were extremely pleased with the service provided and delighted we decided to use PSC.
We had the pleasure to work with Martin for our chain of pharmacies. He was professional in his approach with us and delivered and executed some excellent work. We would have no hesitation in using Martin again in the future whilst also happy to recommend him to colleagues and friends alike.
