  • Future must be built on trust Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    Although the devil is always in the detail, there seems to be a great deal of support for the establishment of a royal college-type body to serve pharmacy and associated professions, and thereby, the public. This week's issue carries a number of items approaching the issue from different angles.

  • P to POM status - a good move Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    I wish to respond to the articles in the PJ about pseudoephedrine changing from pharmacy to prescription-only status. Pharmacists have said that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency’s stance is a “slap in the face for pharmacy”. I disagree with every pharmacist who has this point of view. June Raine, director of vigilance

  • Stock up on hankies Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    The 1939–45 war heralded the foundation of human rights based on the ideals of dignity, privacy and choice. Even national service frameworks embody the notion of treating others as you yourself would wish to be treated. The announcement to reclassify pseudoephedrine from pharmacy to prescription-only status is more notable for its uncompromising arrogance

  • Pharmacists are more than capable of controlling supply Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, in its wisdom, has decided that “reclassification is the only way to restrict the availability” of pseudoephedrine and ephedrine products and that “rigourous supervision of pharmacy sales of single packs would not impact on the known practice of purchasing small quantities from multiple pharmacies”.

  • Simple supply service Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    I found Lin-Nam Wang’s article “How to make a success of MURs” (PJ, 17 March, p315) generally interesting and helpful. However, I was saddened by the statement “The Department of Health and NHS … are no longer willing to pay for simple supply services.”

  • We must make remote supervision a remote possibility Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    The stated position of the Pharmacists’ Defence Association (PDA) on remote supervision (the plan to operate a pharmacy in the absence of a pharmacist) is that it constitutes a significant threat to public safety. When we lobby members of Parliament and other key decision makers, it never

  • A proven professional body? Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    So the SalvaDore is a well established, proven professional and regulatory body with a strong track record of protecting the public and supporting and leading pharmacists. This was the bold claim the Society made at the Government’s announcement that the roles of the Society

  • No need for the Society to surrender our assets Subscription

    30 MAR 2007 23:00

    Mark Walker’s letter (PJ, 3 March, p246) proves that at least someone has thought through the practicalities of the Government’s rupturing of our SalvaDore. Unfortunately he did not go far enough.
