The Pharmacy Stakeholders Forum (PSF) welcomed the publication of the draft dispensing fee for pharmacists. It follows many months of research and discussion, and many years of frustration.
Draft regulations for comment were originally published in January 2004, and have been unsuccessfully revised a number of times. In 2005, the Constitutional Court instructed the Pricing Committee to take into consideration input given by interested parties, and to ensure that the final dispensing fee is just and equitable. This was considered essential so that pharmacies would not be driven out of business.
