The Pharmacists Association of Belize Commends Minister Bernard

The Pharmacists Association of Belize has responded to comments made by Health and Wellness Minister Kevin Bernard on Love FM. In an interview earlier this week, Bernard told Love News that there are instances that pharmacists would intentionally direct patients to private health facilities to purchase medication even though the public hospital has. The Association says that it commends the Minister’s attention to the procurement, storage and usage of pharmaceuticals in the government sector. The release says (quote) This has long been an area of concern for both staff and patients as the under supply, mismanagement and wastage of medications leaves countless families scurrying to obtain their much needed prescriptions through various avenues and not just at Northern Regional Hospital but countrywide.” (end of quote) The association says that the Central Medical Stores needs a critical overhaul to improve operations to all the hospitals and clinics they supply throughout the country. An effective supply system coupled with medications that meet the quality standards for safety and efficacy is at the centre of providing Good Pharmaceutical Service to the society.
