High-tech pharmacist of the future based in Lindley

I thought this was an interesting approach to pharmaceutical manufacturing that isn't occurring in Canada, at least not yet.

From the Huddersfield (UK) Examiner:
Medicines used in Huddersfield Royal Infirmary now come from ... Lindley!

The new £8m pharmacy at Acre Mill is now producing almost half a million tablets each year.

And it is capable of manufacturing medicines for individual patients or in large-scale batches.

The pharmacy is now making all the medicines needed in both Calderdale Royal Hospital and HRI.

They are also supplying medicines to hospitals, pharmacists and chemists throughout Yorkshire.
