Chief Pharmacist Errol Thomas has identified the need for new medical legislation in Dominica to ensure product safety.
Dominica’s newest pharmacy, Fresh Market Pharmacy, welcomed medical practitioners on Thursday evening for an introduction to the newest medicinal arrivals on island.
Thomas commended efforts to make medicine affordable and to promote in-patient compliance for medical prescriptions.
Thomas says there is a pressing need for new medical legislation in Dominica to ensure product safety and quality, stating that Dominica’s medical laws are over sixty years old. He highlighted the work of himself and others to update the laws but according to Thomas, this initiative is “taking time”.
