Chamber of pharmacists speaks out against lawbreakers

The Slovak Chamber of Pharmacists (SLeK) has expressed serious concern over pharmacies that are breaking the law, and stressed that state authorities and health insurance companies have the duty to perform oversight and report illegal activities.

For example, SleK considers it unacceptable that whole networks of pharmacies violate the regulation limiting a private individual or corporate entity from owning more than one pharmacy and branch pharmacy.

Furthermore, SleK says some networks of public pharmacies charge more for medication than allowed by law. Such illegal activities, it warned, could lead to the liquidation of all pharmacies.

SleK is also concerned about pharmacies being bought by non-pharmacists, especially corporate entities, who it says are only concerned with the bottom line, and will use any means, even unlawful, to earn a profit.
