The duties and responsibilities of a RP includeensuring that the provisions of the licence are fulfilled by means of GDP and GMP compliance and best practice within all regulated activities, a compliant quality system is established and maintained and a suitable document control system is in place to ensure that adequate records are maintained. In addition, the RP will need to oversee the audit of the quality system, carry out independent audits and cooperate with the product licence holder and regulatory authorities with regard to drug returns and product recalls.
In order to carry out his/her duties, the RP should have knowledge of the products being traded under the licence and the conditions necessary for their safe storage and distribution.

Cranleigh, which is situated in Surrey in the South East Region, is reputedly the largest village in England. Cranleigh is located approximately 50 miles from London, 8 from Guildford, 12 from Horsham and 9 from Dorking. Although there are some light engineering companies in Cranleigh, many residents commute to London, Guildford and other larger towns. The Beeching railway cuts meant that Cranleigh lost its station in 1965 and the nearest one is now in Chilworth, approximately 8 miles away. Cranleigh is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and is close to Petworth House, Winkworth Arboretum and Leith Hill.
Cranleigh is famous for two main reasons. Firstly, in 1859 it was the first place to set up a cottage hospital and secondly the head of a grinning cat is carved on an arch in the church and this is believed to have been the inspiration for Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat.
Famous people from Cranleigh include: Anna Botting, Sky News Presenter and W Heath Robinson, Cartoonist & Illustrator
