The Slovak Chamber of Pharmacists has written an open letter urging Prime Minister Iveta Radičová to throw her weight behind withdrawal of a proposed bill from a cabinet session, the SITA newswire reported.
The chamber wrote that the blueprint is poor and unacceptable and it is asking for a re-worked version, stating that the most serious flaw is that its provisions are directed only at commercial objectives and they warn against potential legal violations.
Additionally, the chamber states that activities of specific pharmacy operators, such as customer loyalty schemes aimed at seizing control over a market, should not be legalised, writing that loyalty schemes provide only fictitious benefits to customers and tend to raise use of drugs.
