Regulatory Challenges in Pharmacy Practice
Sunday 29th March 2020
Crowne Plaza, Shaws Bridge, Belfast

Recent years have seen the implementation of significant changes in the regulation of pharmacy practice. 

UCA is delighted to be working with Pharmsmart, an Electronic Incident Reporting software provider, to promote their range of digital products and services to Pharmacies across NI.

Pharmsmart is a young and dynamic company developed by Pharmacists Sunil Patel and Taskeel Khan, who have created IT solutions for the front-line challenges facing everyone. Pharmsmart's ethos is to be connected and responsive to all that use their software.

 

Why Pharmsmart?

 

Community pharmacy is experiencing an alarming rise in aggressive and violent incidents. The worst incident involved two pharmacists (both UCA Executive Committee members) being stabbed in a pharmacy in West Belfast.

 

UCA surveyed its members who told us about their experiences which can be summarised as follows:

 

·         Aggressive and rude behaviour from patients on a daily basis

·         Violent incidents/attempted robberies in the past year

·         Attempted/robberies increasingly involving knives or guns

The Ulster Chemist's Association is urging Locum Pharmacists to come forward and register with the UCA Locum Online.

With over 200 member pharmacist, we have regular requests for temporary cover and often recieve requests from non-member pharmacies as well as other healthboards.

 

Opportunities arise on occassion for both full time and part time permenant positions as well as long term, temporary contracts.
