The South African Pharmacy Council says it recognises the selfless efforts by pharmacy professionals throughout the country in the fight against COVID-19.
The regulator of the pharmacy profession, has announced it has placed a moratorium on 2021 annual fee increases, for all pharmacy professionals and facilities.
The 25-member Council collective has resolved to halt all annual fee increases, and to absorb any service cost increases, in fulfilling its’ legislative mandate.
The council is the regulator of the pharmacy profession, and guarantor of patient-centered pharmaceutical care.
SAPC President Mogologolo Phasha, says the Council doesn’t expect its’ ability to fulfill its’ mandate, to be weakened by this decision.
