Maintaining a headcount balance in regulatory affairs departments in the pharmaceutical industry is a perennial headache for any senior management team. The workflow in regulatory groups can undergo periods of extreme pressure as unexpected projects or structural reorganisations create the need for fast action. Recruiting skilled staff to meet these demands is not straightforward, and new staff take time to understand the historical perspective for a product portfolio.


At Diamond Pharma Services we understand this pressure. Over the years we have provided overflow regulatory department coverage to a range of clients including:

  • Global generics companies
  • Top 10 global pharmaceutical companies
  • Virtual generics companies
  • Generics companies with no EU or UK regulatory trained staff.

We are specialists in providing bespoke cover to companies either via the provision of dedicated full time equivalent coverage, or ad hoc emergency support.
