Boris recently visited AAH Pharmaceuticals distribution site and automated dispensing hub in Ruislip to learn more about the work being done to ensure the continued supply of medicines to pharmacies, hospitals and doctors across Hillingdon and the UK.
During the visit, Boris met with Riadh Aouichaoui, General Manager and Ashley Cowen, Director of Operations and was taken on a tour of the site which included seeing the automated prescription assembly and vaccination storage facilities. He also got the opportunity to help refill the packing machine before meeting some of the 300 staff, many of whom live in the constituency.
