  • ISSN : 1608-9634
  • E-ISSN: 2220-1068



In the last issue of SAPA, we examined the impact of Schedules 0, 1 and 2 on your practice. In this issue, we look at the types of control for supply of Schedules 3 to 8 substances in a pharmacy. Please note that the article refers to pharmacist's assistants throughout, and does not mention Pharmacy Technicians or Pharmacy Technical Assistants. The article applies to both Post-Basic Pharmacist's Assistants and Pharmacy Technicians, as they are currently practising within the same scope of practice. Before examining Schedules 3 to 8, we need to remind ourselves of the factors that the Medicines Control Council (MCC) takes into account when allocating substances and medicines to a Schedule.
