  • Pharmacists needing guidance to improve practice

Indeed, any pharmacist, who have had limited exposure or a narrow view of UK pharmacy operations.

At this time Pharmacy in the UK is changing. Consultations are currently taking place on

  • and with the Department of Health on hub and spoke operation and other changes to The Human Medicines (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2016 (ending 17/5/16) which are planned to come into force 1st October 2016.
