FMD finds no falsified medicines in UK after ten months, says MHRA


Time for Boris to remove checking at the pharmacy level .Think what we could do with the time being wasted on FMD checking . We could relieve some of the stress in the pharmacy . If no false products have been detected in 55 million scans one cannot justify continuing testing at the pharmacy level . It should be restricted up to , and including ,the wholesaler dispatch point . If a pharmacy has knowingly purchased drugs from an unauthorised source they would not scan them anyway !
