Pharmacists to hand out emergency medication supplies without GP approval

Comment

So a bit more paper work for the GP's, check your emails for medication updates ... Surely patients need educating in ensuring they don't run out of regular medication? It would also help if patient's took their medication regularly and stopped sharing their headache tablets with family. This assumes that patients are registered with a pharmacy in the first place and who is going to do the ordering. Does this mean any member of the family can order repeats for another member of the family ... what a brilliant way of reducing abuse of drugs.
