PROCEDURE FOR SUPERVISION OF PHARMACIST-OWNED PHARMACIES BY PHARMACISTS IN FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT  ELSEWHERE


INTRODUCTION

Following the decision by the Pharmacy Council to implement its new policy on supervision of pharmacies by pharmacists effective, 4th January, 2016; many pharmacists who own pharmacies but for one reason or the other work full time elsewhere petitioned the PSGH President for some level of consideration since they could make adequate arrangement for supervision in their absence.

The PSGH President at the meeting of the Governing Board of the Pharmacy Council held on Monday, 21st December, 2015, made some proposals for consideration which were accepted. This meant effective 1st January, 2016, pharmacists who own pharmacies but work full time elsewhere would be allowed to superintend these pharmacies by fulfilling the following criteria:

1.       Presentation of Registrar Generals Department Certificate of Incorporation and Companies Code

2.       Presentation of the last Pharmacy Council Premises  Renewal/Registration License

3.       Verification of the status of both the Superintendent and Locum Pharmacist at the PSGH Secretariat.

4.       Filling of a PSGH Commitment Form and recommendation by the PSGH President. (…Click to download)

I guess it's for owners of facilities who work elsewhere. Are you asking if you can put in an application to register your own facility when you working elsewhere ? I guess it's a yes once you have proof that it is your facility

Does this apply to engaged pharmacists who want to open their own new facility?
