To provide information and support in the roll-out of the Pharmacy Assessment System, we held 12 information events in various locations around the country in October and November 2016 and again in March 2017. You can view the event presentation and other resources that we have available.
To help you keep on track, and support you in completing the Pharmacy Assessment System, please find a suggested completion schedule below:
Each month an email alert will be sent to supervising pharmacists and pharmacies with the suggested section of the Pharmacy Assessment System that you should complete.
PSI inspectors have started visiting pharmacies to answer any questions that pharmacists might have in relation to the Pharmacy Assessment System and to check that it is being completed. This visit is not an inspection and takes approximately 20 minutes.
The advisory visits are not notified, and it is not possible to organise a scheduled visit with us. However, with the monthly email alert we do indicate the counties/regions that the PSI inspectors intend to visit that month. This may occasionally be subject to change, but all pharmacies will receive a visit in the coming months. In April visits are planned for counties Cavan, Cork, Kerry, Monaghan, Tipperary and Dublin 3, Dublin 5, Dublin 13, Dublin 15, Dublin 14, and Dublin 18.
It is important that all staff members know where the Pharmacy Assessment System folder is located in the pharmacy.
If you have any questions or feedback on the Pharmacy Assessment System, you can email us on email@example.com.
