FORUM ON ZONING OF COMMUNITY PHARMACY
The location or zoning of community pharmacies have been discussed at length some years ago, with attempts to incorporate such criteria into the Benchmarking Guidelines for Community Pharmacy. It is felt that each community pharmacy should not be open too close to each other and especially not just next door for the orderly practice of the profession.
Thus, MPS is organising an open forum to discuss the issues of zoning and eventually prepare a memorandum to the Pharmacy Services Program, Ministry of Health for the incorporation of the zoning statement into the Guidelines.
Date: Saturday, 10th March 2018
Venue: Wisma MPS
The Forum is open to all pharmacists who owns and / or operating pharmacies. Do feel free to inform any of these pharmacists who are also welcome to the Forum.
Please send in your confirmation of attendance by email to email@example.com with the subject matter as : CPZ - "your name"
