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.
