Life Sciences

Regulatory challenges, converging pharmaceutical, medical technology and medical biotechnology in addition to new product pipelines, time to market constraints and spiralling healthcare costs are just a few of the immense pressures that face Healthcare and Pharma organizations in order to align shareholders goals to falling revenues that are in contrast to increased performance demands.
Exposure to pharmaceuticals and other life science organizations has given us at McGrath a second to none understanding of the plethora of challenges that these organizations face; that is why many healthcare companies come to us to help them realign their organization to ambitious performance objectives.
Our McGrath Life Sciences Unit is a dedicated team with vast experience. With an astute analysis and implementation methodology and a focused and objective approach to performance, will identify deficiencies in concept and performance, operational footprint complexities and other identifiable challenges and thereafter tailor an implementation program to your specific needs, improving execution control and reducing ineffectiveness, delivering superior performance in all areas such as procurement, production, production planning, R&D, wastage, logistics or supply chain to name a few.
