A little about us

The IPU Bookshop is a partnership between The Irish Pharmacy Union and Professional Books Limited. Exclusively available to IPU members, PhamacyBooks.ie guarantees members the best prices and is an integral part of the Professional Books family of niche online bookshops, one of the leading independent suppliers of professional & technical books since the 1990's.

100% Genuine Books - Guaranteed!

We only work directly with publishers and reputable wholesalers which enables us to guarantee that every book we supply is a GENUINE copy. To certify this, we apply a small sticker to each book.

Numerous publishers have reported issues with counterfeit / NHS property stamped copies being sold on Amazon MarketPlace, Ebay and other such sites. These books may look the same but the content may be incorrect and not in line with current regulations. If you are suspicious about a book you have received from another supplier, we are happy to look at this for you and refer it back to the publishers for a decision.
