The Healthcare Distribution Association (HDA) reflects the changes in the supply chain that has seen pharmaceutical wholesalers become integrated health care service providers.  The distribution industry has to change, with wholesalers taking more of a role in central dispensing, informatics and big data, as well as reacting to continued consolidation, online pharmacies and new picking and delivery mechanisms.

The HDA has been established to promote the more varied comprehensive medicines wholesaling, distribution and associated services now provided by a more diverse range of businesses that ensure resilience, certainty and flexibility for patients, manufacturers and healthcare institutions across the four countries of the United Kingdom.

Our Mission

Patient safety is our guiding principle and this can be embodied in the mantra: “the right treatment, in the right place, and at the right time”

Inherent within this simple statement are some core principles that our member companies adhere to, and should be respected for, namely:

  • the ability to source medicines and treatments used across the NHS;
  • the ability to store and keep these medicines safely and under clinically-required conditions, until required by hospitals, pharmacies and doctors in all locations across the four countries of the United Kingdom

Our members adhere to, and promote the highest standards of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) as needed, we can then distribute these healthcare treatments speedily.
