Decriminalisation of dispensing errors: Day Lewis Pharmacy comment

rx-3

Leading pharmacy companies and professional bodies have united in a pledge to support a pan-pharmacy campaign for the decriminalisation of dispensing errors, following a recent court case where a locum pharmacist, Elizabeth Lee, received a three month suspended prison sentence following a dispensing error.

 

PRimage client, Day Lewis – the largest independent multiple pharmacy group and a strong advocate of patient safety – is at the forefront of the campaign support.  Day Lewis Managing Director and Superintendent Pharmacist, Peter Glover, feels that the Elizabeth Lee case has ‘set patient safety back years’.  He comments: “Anything that can be done to decriminalise dispensing errors should be done as soon as possible.”
