Community Pharmacy

Currently every pharmacist is personally responsible under the Code Of Conduct for his/her own acts or omissions of persons operating in the area of pharmacy under their direction control or supervision.

This applies to all pharmacists, irrespective of form of professional practice.

The onus on personal responsibility demands that pharmacists must keep up to date with changes in pharmacy practice, the law relating to pharmacy and the knowledge and technology applicable to pharmacy and must maintain competence and effectiveness as a practitioner!
