Welcome to Huddersfield Pharmacy Specials (HPS). The Yorkshire regional pharmacy manufacturing unit and one of the foremost NHS PMUs in the UK.

Pharmacy specials have been manufactured at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary since the 1960s.  Production relocated across the road to the new purpose built facility in 2008.  The unit still forms part of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and supplies manufactured medicines to our own Trust and other healthcare organisations throughout the country.

We supply to NHS, private companies and community pharmacies under our Specials Manufacturing licence.

We employ pharmacists, technicians and non technical staff as well as staff our own QC department.
