Slow release of technician report not helpful

By Ross Ferguson There is no doubt we need a discussion about the pharmacy team and the roles and responsibilities within it, so the Pharmacists’ Defence Association (PDA) report is probably to be welcomed. I say probably, because we haven’t actually seen the report, only what the PDA has chosen to release through its website in a well-controlled manner. Namely: Pharmacy technicians don’t want to be responsible for supervising pharmacies The PDA has raised concerns that the public may be potentially “confused or misled” about the capabilities of pharmacy technicians. Unsurprisingly, all this has rankled what I assume is an already tense relationship with our pharmacy technician colleagues and the Association of Pharmacy Technicians (UK) in particular.

By Alexander Humphries* A new member of staff recently asked me how some brown stains had come to mark the ceiling of the dispensary. It was odd, she said, because it is a very high ceiling.

Where should accountability lie?

By David Gallier-Harris, a member of the DHSC’s rebalancing board, writing in a personal capacity The superintendent pharmacist/responsible pharmacist consultation from the rebalancing board reviews the current legislation and proposes moving much from primary legislation to professional regulatory control. One result of these proposals is that failure to comply with a new mixture of GPhC standards, rules and regulatory guidance would become fitness to practise matters, rather than criminal offences, as is currently the case.
