A new pharmaceutical company to the Island, Kingsley Muti, is set to open its doors in January 2024.

The company which is based in Balthane Industrial Estate is set to increase medicine resilience on the Island.

Kingsley Muti has two parts to the business which it hopes will benefit Manx residents.

The first with it being a wholesaler of medicines, meaning it can sell prescriptions to any pharmacy on the Island and increase the supply chain.

The second being the on Island care and distributing of medicines – which can be delivered to your home or picked up on site.

The facility will have an Meditech Robot which is able to deliver 100,000 prescriptions per month; the robot is set to revolutionise the efficiency of stock control and allow for stock to not go out of date and give customers security in being able to get their medicine.

The onsite warehouse will hold an excess of stock, to prevent a shortage of medicine and ultimately prevent prescriptions being unavailable.

Energy FM spoke to one of Kingsley Muti’s Director, Nick Kaye, who himself is Chair of the National Pharmacy Association.

Speaking on the three consultation rooms which will host onsite pharmacists, Nick said: “We’re hoping to have a team of both prescribing pharmacists, nurses and GP’s potentially onsite.”
