About HL Pharma

Matt Hayward BPharm, MRPharmS set up HL Pharma in March 2014 having moved back to Australia from the UK. Matt has extensive knowledge and experience in the supply of unregistered/unlicensed products having owned his own company in the UK specialising in this field.

HL Pharma strive to apply a customer orientated approach to every strand of our organisation, from sourcing of our products to the delivery

HL Pharma sources products only from registered suppliers. For example our UK suppliers must have a pharmaceutical wholesale or manufacturing license and be registered with the Medicines And Health Regulatory Agency (MHRA). HL Pharma does not supply pharmaceutical products to members of the public. HL Pharma is registered with The Victorian Department of Health and works under the code of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) to supply pharmaceuticals.

More information

Products are only sourced from registered suppliers. For example our UK suppliers must have a pharmaceutical wholesale or manufacturing license and be registered with the MHRA.

What are unregistered/unlicensed pharmaceuticals?

Within Australia, pharmaceuticals that are not registered with the Therapeutic Goods Agency (TGA) are considered unregistered. However, this does not necessarily mean they cannot to be used or are unsafe. They are often licensed products and valid in other geographical regions that have been tested, approved and manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). A product that is licensed by the MHRA in the UK but is yet to be registered in Australia with the TGA, would be considered an unregistered product here in Australia, if it is required for a patient there are various methods of obtaining it and HL Pharma can assist you in doing so.

Sometimes Australian registered products become unavailable here in Australia but are still available overseas. The overseas product would be considered an unregistered Australian product. HL Pharma can organise the supply. Pharmaceutical compounded products are also unregistered. Compounded products made by a pharmacist usually have no validated expiry date data or validated certificate of analysis. They may be prepared in facilities that are not registered with the TGA. Products licensed overseas will have validated expiry dates, certificates of conformity and will have appropriate data for approval within the countries they are licensed in.

In Australia there are various methods available to gain access to unregistered/unlicensed products. These include:

  • The Special Access Scheme
  • The Authorised Prescriber Scheme
  • The Personal Access Scheme
  • Exemptions under The Therapeutic Goods Regulations.

HL Pharma can provide information on the most appropriate method of obtaining these types of products. The use of unregistered/unlicensed pharmaceuticals is quite common but all those involved in the process, from the doctor, pharmacist to the patient, should make an informed decision when deciding to use these products. HL Pharma also exports pharmaceuticals to licensed facilities. If this is of interest to you please contact us.

The delivery of pharmaceuticals requires special attention, simply posting the product is not a satisfactory option. HL Pharma expects the highest standards in the delivery of products from our suppliers into our warehouse to the delivery of your order.

We only use approved logistics suppliers and our packaging will ensure the temperature control required for each product. Refrigerated and frozen products often require validated packaging so we will use temperature data loggers where appropriate.

HL Pharma delivers by courier throughout Australia within 1-2 working days. For metropolitan areas we strive to ensure a next day delivery service.
