WASDELL Packaging has expanded its team with two new pharmaceutical experts.

The pharmaceutical packaging firm, which has a warehouse in Blagrove, has appointed two Qualified Persons to ensure products comply with manufacturing good practice and meet European standards.

Nick Evelegh-Taylor has joined the firm after working for the NHS as a deputy quality controller at Bristol Royal Infirmary.

Nick said: “Moving from an NHS background to a commercial business has been very interesting as moving into a fast-paced commercial environment provides the challenge I was looking for.

"Wasdell’s interest in expanding the knowledge and the experience base of their QP team was a deciding factor and I hope to be able to provide useful hospital and patient insight into products and the process the QP team goes through."

Lucia Dalvit, who is joining the QP audit team, added: "Specialist QP positions can be hard to find in the region, especially ones that offer the training and development opportunities. I wanted to be able to develop my strengths as a QP as well as experience different elements, such as leading audits of other companies."
