Today we mark Pharmacy Technician Day and wish to acknowledge the significant contribution Pharmacy Technicians and support staff make, as an integral part of the pharmacy team, to patient wellbeing and care in Northern Ireland.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Pharmaceutical Society NI, Mr. Trevor Patterson, commenting on Pharmacy Technician Day stated:
‘Following the announcement of the Health Minister that he has approved work to begin to bring Pharmacy Technicians in Northern Ireland under statutory regulation by the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland, we are looking forward to working with Technicians on their journey to become a regulated profession. This will allow the role of a technician, based on professional standards, to be further embedded and developed within the pharmacy team, to enhance patient care and service delivery.”
