Pharmacy Law Conference 2019
The community pharmacy sector continues to face an unprecedented number of challenges, but also opportunities.
Our team of experts will discuss the latest developments affecting the sector and explore what’s coming up in 2019.
At the conference, we will cover the following topics:
Regulatory and market entry update
As well as exploring recent and upcoming regulatory change, we will look at the laws and practice around online prescribing and the sale of cannabis products.
Nasty shocks and nice surprises
Your pharmacy business may well be one of the most valuable assets your family owns and it is therefore vital to ensure it is protected against the sudden death or incapacity of a family member. Knowing what your options are and taking action in good time is vital both from a personal and business perspective.
Data misuse by staff – protecting your business and your patients
We will consider what steps pharmacy owners should take if they discover a departing member of staff has taken confidential information without authority and best practice guidance for protecting the business and its patients.
We will also provide a brief update on locum issues following proposals set out in the Budget.
- Avoiding a No Deal scenario
We will look at points arising on recent transactions from a corporate and property perspective to help you avoid ending up in a No Deal scenario.
- Medicines to die for In light of recent high profile prosecutions of healthcare practitioners for manslaughter, we’ll explore a real-life scenario and invite the audience to act as judge and jury to see how the law on manslaughter would apply to a pharmacist, including a look at the effects of access to the Summary Care Record..
