This is a UK-wide consultation, issued on behalf of the 4 UK health departments with their support.
It seeks comments and views on 2 pharmacy-related draft Orders which would amend current pharmacy legislation. These draft Orders are being made under the powers in section 60 of the Health Act 1999 and are subject to Parliamentary scrutiny.
The two draft Orders are:
- The Pharmacy (Preparation and Dispensing Errors) Order 2015
- The Pharmacy (Premises Standards, Information Obligations, etc.) Order 2015
Because the regulation of pharmacy technicians is a devolved matter as regards Scotland, the draft Orders must be laid before the Scottish Parliament, as well as the UK Parliament. The outcome of the consultation will be reported to all UK health ministers.
