Health: Pharmaceutical Services

Volume 709: debated on Wednesday 1 April 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government when they expect to launch the consultation on regulations relating to pharmacist supervision of the dispensing of prescribed medicines and the sale of pharmacy medicines. [HL2435]

This year, the Government will start discussions with all interested parties on initial proposals for the content of the pharmacist supervision regulations to allow their views to inform the further development of these proposals and the drafting of a formal public consultation paper. Depending on progress in these informal discussions with pharmacy interests, we hope to be in a position to launch formal consultation in early 2010.
