Health Ministry to issue pharmacies licenses

IN AN EFFORT to address the current situation in which many Slovak pharmacies are either shut down or are not buying new drugs, only providing patients with what they have in their old stock, Health Minister Rudolf Zajac proposed a draft amendment on health care providers that would enable the ministry to issue licenses to new pharmacists.

In protest of their growing indebtedness, pharmacists are continuing their strike for the second week in a row.

The amendment would enable the Health Ministry to issue new licenses to ensure that patients do not have to face a lack of well-stocked pharmacies.

Zajac said to the Slovak daily SME that the new licenses would mainly be issued to hospital pharmacies, but also to other business and legal entities that have met the required criteria for such activity.
