What is the Falsified Medicines Directive?


We often get very large deliveries of 2000 boxes of tablets or more It will be very impractical to scan everyone of these boxes when delivered Patients very often do not collect their prepared prescriptions within 10 days. What will we do with the uncollected medications after this time. Most of the time patients with private prescriptions pay for their prescriptions when they are handed in. What will we tell these patients if they come to collect their prepared prescriptions 2 or 3 weeks later How will the scanning system be made available to pharmacies?
