Director at Dispensing Doctor Experts UK

Greg Bull

Greg Bull has worked with Dispensing Doctors since 1995 when he stumbled into them via his previous employer way back then. He didn’t even know doctors dispensed medicine, let alone ran commercially functioning dispensaries. He was brought up in an urban environment where “Doctors prescribe and pharmacists dispense”. That was the mantra and back in the 1990s, there seemed to be some animosity between dispensing doctors and pharmacies. Hopefully, that is a thing of the past.

And so he learnt about The Drug Tariff [wow, what a thing to have to read and look at every month… but every cloud has a silver lining], endorsing, branded generics, ethicals, generics, parallel imports, “specials” and much more. He has made many friends in the dispensing doctor world, it’s a small niche place and he likes it. He can promise you that if he doesn’t know something related to Dispensing Doctors, there probably isn’t anyone else who does know!

Since being made redundant, it is time to create a new company dedicated to helping Dispensing Doctors: This is where you can find out more. It’s always about the patient for him, always was and always will be. The patient is the most important part of the NHS. He has come to learn so much about dispensing doctor dispensing from so many wonderful, interesting, intelligent and passionate characters from the GP world, pharma, pharmacists and primary care that he wants to share it.

He is busy creating a team of like-minded people to join him in this and have some fun, make a difference in patient lives, help keep dispensing doctor practices afloat and viable and, most of all, save this NHS of ours; it really is a jewel in our crown, let’s protect it forever.

We work with more than 200 leading Life Sciences companies including:
