A day in the QbD life of… Evelyne, pharmacist and Qualified & Responsible Person

28/05/2019 -

This week, it’s pharmacist Evelyne Goudezeune’s turn to bring us along for a typical ‘Day in the QbD Life’, filled with several meetings and a very entertaining evening. Like what you read? Then make sure to send us your cv to join our amazing team.

Hi there! My name is Evelyne, and I’ve been working as a pharmaceutical consultant at QbD since the end of April 2018. Before I started at QbD, I had been working in a public pharmacy for a few years. I’ve also been active in the pharmaceutical industry for a longer period of time, as well as in the hospital industry for a few years. But eventually, I decided to switch back to pharma, as I found it more challenging. 

I’m working for four different clients now, which makes it interesting and never boring.

drop off my 8-year old daughter Sophie at school08h10: The first thing I do when I leave the house is drop off my 8-year old daughter Sophie at school. After that, it’s time to leave for Ghent, to visit one of the four clients I work for.

09h10: I’ve arrived in Ghent. I usually start with a meeting with the logistics manager, to know if there have been certain problems with the transport or the implemented changes in the warehouse processes. After that, I’m the purchase and administrations department manager, to discuss a few challenges.

After that, I’m taking a look into the warehouse, and more specifically the incoming goods area. Last year, one of our biggest challenges was to get it well-organised and to smoothly transfer the next flow of released products to the picking zone of the warehouse.

10h20: I’m checking my e-mails and I’m answering some urgent questions regarding a release of IMP’s. I’m also overviewing some documents which will be discussed later today.

11h00: Time for another meeting! This time, I’m discussing some things with the general manager, the logistics manager, the IT manager and the manager of purchase and administration. Our main topic is the unexpected inspection by the FAGG last week. The inspectors were very enthusiastic about the changes that were made to the warehouse and the flow. After that, we’re going over the CAPA plan.
