Self selection of P medicines will decrease patient safety, increase hopsital admissions and patients will miss out on important additional advice on the medicines and what they are treating. Also increase thefts of medicines that have the potential to be abused.
I am in full support of maintaining the current status which works. It will be the start of the end for us if they go ahead. Needs to be stopped.
I think self-selection will compromise the safe and effective use of P medicines for an overwhelming majority of the public. Pharmacists are well placed to identify early red flag symptoms and the repeated use, overuse or an over-reliance on P medicines. Pharmacists can therefore intervene and signpost the public to more appropriate (and possibly more sustainable) services that would help prevent and treat a wide range of conditions.
