Pharmacists – Online pharmacists ‘forget what they learned in community’

Pharmacists - Online pharmacists ‘forget what they learned in community’ says GPhC

Pharmacists who move from the community to an online pharmacy setting “seem to forget all the stuff that happened” in their previous job, giving rise to patient safety risks, the GPhC’s director of fitness to practise has told Pharmacy Network News.

Addressing the Sigma conference via videolink on March 6, Claire Bryce-Smith told delegates that “when pharmacy professionals work across different settings, they don’t always apply standards in different settings”.

Asked to elaborate, Ms Bryce-Smith explained there are persistent issues in the online sector, and that pharmacists “seem to forget all the stuff they did in community pharmacy settings, particularly when there is prescribing involved … [we see] people overprescribing or prescribing outside their scope of practice”.
