Guernsey pharmacist law change approved

Moves to tighten up the laws governing the running of pharmacies in Guernsey have been approved by the States.

Pharmacists, who need to have UK qualifications, will only be allowed sole charge of pharmacy once they have three years experience.

The Health Department called for the change to ensure patient safety.

A change to the proposition allowing pharmacists without three years experience to run pharmacies on a short-term basis was also approved.
