Members Benefit: Dispex SOPs

DISPEX SOP Templates are Available


Dispex members are able to access our comprehensive SOPs library! SOPs are a vital part of the DSQS
requirements and an important element to ensure safe and quality
practice and procedures are followed by all members of staff.

Our Templates will provide a guide, according to the DSQS requirements minimum, for you to amend
as relevant
to your own Dispensary. You will be able to customise and adapt the procedures content to
your own circumstances and adjust each one, to reflect the way your own Dispensary operates, within
the recommended guidelines.
