As you are aware, negotiations on the next POYC agreement shall be opening soon. It is of vital importance that pharmacists especially those practicing in community pharmacy and already delivering a POYC service attend the next seminar/CPD meeting which will especially focus on POYC.
The past two (2) CPD seminars held on the 31st May and 4th June respectively have already delivered strong messages home and we as pharmacists need to be empowered and embrace the changes of our profession. In all other EU countries patients collect their NHS medicines from community pharmacies with a full pharmaceutical service. This is the fully decentralised system that the maltese government wants for maltese patients.
The Kamra also wants the development, empowerment, support and recognition of these pharmaceutical services. We thus strongly recommend that you attend the CPD seminar which will be held on:
Monday 11th June @ 7.30pm @ the Professional Centre, Sliema Road, Gzira.
Dr. Jurgen Abela President Malta College of Family Doctors (MMCFD) will be giving us the doctor’s perspective and there will be a brief interventions by Kamra President Mary Ann Sant Fournier, and then the floor will be open for interventions by community pharmacists on their POYC experience and a wide discussion.
The Kamra is requesting everybody’s input to take a strong case to the negotiating table. It is your profession, your career and it is up to you to be there to participate actively and help us shape the future of community pharmacy – our visionary paradigm shift.
Light refreshments will follow the presentation. Annual membership fee (50 euros) payable at the door or 15 euro for the meeting.
