With no control on student numbers, tomorrow’s pharmacists will have a bleak future


Hello Anthony Yes, fair point there are probably 4 dynamics at play in fact (in no particular order 1) New Schools 2) Expansion of Existing Schools 3) Parallel Imports! (AKA European pharmacists - mutual recognition route 4) More OSPAPs (overseas, not-European pharmacists gaining UK accreditation The figures are known and available albeit I don't have them- Damien Day and his team would, tho. Based on my knowledge the new schools are the largest single contributor however. Graham
