The Pharmacy Stakeholders Forum (PSF) recently met with the Minister of Health, Barbara Hogan, to discuss the dispensing fee for pharmacists. The PSF welcomed the opportunity to meet with the Minister. Matters raised and discussed at the meeting reflected a desire to truly understand the uniqueness of the pharmacy trading environment. It appears that the Minister realises that many other trade related matters impact on the dispensing fee, and that these need further investigation. These issues include DSP arrangements, medical scheme reimbursements, licensing issues and human resources. The Minister was also interested in the closure of pharmacies since 2003.
