New era for single one-off dispensing errors
To the relief of many pharmacists whose lives have been made a misery in the past year or so by the seemingly draconian investigation of all mishaps in the pharmacy, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Council has decided that the threshold criteria for the referral of cases to the Investigating Committee should be restricted to those where fitness to practise has been impaired (p677).
The Society estimates that this will result in around 200 fewer referrals to the committee each year and will herald, as far as members are concerned, a more just system.
