Call for Evidence on the review of the Code has been extended to 16 January 2023

The Call for Evidence on the review of the Pharmaceutical Society NI Code (Professional standards of conduct, ethics and performance for pharmacists in Northern Ireland) 2016, has been extended to the 16 January 2023. This is to enable all those who wish to contribute to have the opportunity to do so.

The purpose of the review of the Code, published in 2016, is to ensure that it remains fit for purpose, considering the changes in pharmacy practice and potential future developments across pharmacy, including increased independent prescribing, more interaction with patients and innovative technologies. The review will also consider the implications for the Code of Pharmacy Technicians in Northern Ireland coming under statutory regulation by the Pharmaceutical Society NI.

To inform the review and any proposals to revise the current Code, we are now making a Call for Evidence. Any information gathered will help inform any revision of the Code which will be a subject of a public consultation in 2023.

We are interested in hearing from members of the public, pharmacists, employers and those who work to provide pharmacy services in Northern Ireland, about how the current Code is working and how it may be improved or revised to ensure high standards and public protection into the future.

We would also welcome any information or material you think the Pharmaceutical Society NI should consider when carrying out its review.

The Call for Evidence will close on the 16 January 2023.
