Public Consultations

The Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland (PSI) carries out regular public consultations so that the opinion and input of our many stakeholders may be considered in the work we are undertaking. Through our consultations we seek to achieve an understanding of what is important to the general public, and to those working in pharmacy and in other health related roles, and ensure that our stakeholders understand our role and the work that we do.

The PSI, as the pharmacy regulator, acts to protect and promote the health, safety and well-being of patients and the public. Our vision is  to ensure that pharmacy services are delivered in a competent, professional and ethical manner and in an appropriate environment, to the highest standards of quality care and best practice.
