New fee regulations released by Pharmacy Council

Pharmacists must ensure that, when a service for which they wish to levy a fee involving the supply of medicine, the patient is furnished with adequate advice or information for the safe and effective use of the medicine(s), new regulations have indicated, reports LegalBrief.

The SA Pharmacy Council has, by notice in the Government Gazette, published rules relating to the services for which a pharmacist may levy a fee and guidelines for levying such fee or fees.

“Services for which a pharmacist may levy a fee or fees may not be advertised in any manner that is not factually correct; is misleading; harms the dignity or honour of the pharmacy profession; or disparages another pharmacist,”’ the notice says.

The new rules replace the existing rules relating to the services for which a pharmacist may levy a fee and guidelines for levying such fee or fees.
