Unannounced inspections and a new approach by GPhC is a total game-changer, says Noel Wicks
I don’t know if you noticed, but pharmacy is undergoing the biggest change in its recent history. I may have only been in the profession of pharmacy for 13 years, but I have never come across a game changer of this magnitude before.
I’m not talking about the Scottish Prescription for Excellence document or the change from PCTs to CCGs. I’m talking about the GPhC’s new model of premises inspection. In fact, by the time you read this, quite a few pharmacies (including one of ours) will have experienced their first taste of life under the new regime. I do hope that we weren’t found wanting!
