Decriminalisation of single dispensing errors comes one step closer
Decriminalisation of single dispensing errors has come a step closer with the tabling of an amendment to the Health and Social Care Bill.
The amendment would see an addition to the 1968 Medicines Act to the effect that pharmacists will not be prosecuted for a dispensing error if, having exercised all due diligence, they reasonably believed requirements were fulfilled when the supply was made. Tabled by Lord Clement-Jones with input from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the amendment will now be discussed in the Houses of Lords and Commons.
