15.4.2021 13:16

Tamro imports pharmaceutical products that require a special permit and distributes them to pharmacies, hospital pharmacies and pharmaceutical centres. Our experts search for products that meet our customers' needs from a wide international network of suppliers in Europe and North America. Special permit products are even supplied for individual patients in cases where no medicinal product with a marketing authorisation in Finland is available.

A total of 223 pharmacies and hospital pharmacies responded to our customer satisfaction survey on special permit products in February 2021. Customers are very satisfied with Tamro’s services for special permit products, awarding an overall rating of 8.8 and a NPS of 67*. More than 70% of respondents consider Tamro as their primary contact in situations where importing special permit products is necessary.

- We are very happy about the positive feedback from our customers. I value the fact that we are able to help pharmacies and hospital pharmacies in these special situations. The feedback we received allows us to further improve our operations while listening to our customers’ wishes. We have already made plans to improve our service based on the survey, says Jonna Niemi, Customer Business Unit Manager for Pharmacies and Hospitals. Customers will be notified of the new service features as the development progresses.
