Probity training for pre-registration pharmacists


Two hundred pre-registration pharmacy students attended one of three probity training days in the Pharmaceutical Society’s headquarters, the theme of which was “Helping You Get It Right”.

Presentations emphasising this theme were provided by the Business Services Organisation, Counter Fraud Agency, Health and Social Care Board probity advisers and pharmacy inspectors.

Mr. Joe Brogan, Head of Pharmacy, Health and Social Care Board, reminded delegates of their responsibility to ensure that all pharmacy services adhered to the principles of probity and governance.

One attendee commented: – “Now I feel confident to code correctly”. Another graduate added: – “An important message was given about taking ownership for handling medicines in the pharmacy”.
