Pharmaceutical regulations under the spotlight
Regulations relating to pharmaceutical needs assessments, repeat dispensing schemes, pharmacist independent prescribing and local pharmaceutical services are taking their turn in the spotlight for the Government’s Red Tape Challenge.
The Government wants to hear views on which of over 500 regulations should be scrapped, which should be kept and which could be improved.
The healthy living and social care theme kicked off this month (November 2012) and covers regulations relating to NHS pharmaceutical services, public health and professional standards. It includes provisions relating to the constitution of the General Pharmaceutical Council and its fitness-to-practise proceedings.
The theme is open until 11 December 2012. Comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted directly on the Red Tape Challenge website
