Learning from Fitness to Practise Inquiries

Where it has been decided that there is sufficient cause to warrant further action in relation to a complaint, the Preliminary Proceedings Committee (PPC) may refer the complaint to a committee of inquiry.

The PSI shares learnings from these inquiries, to help improve pharmacy practice and patient safety by highlighting potential errors and risks.

All registrants should consider how they can use these learnings to review and improve their own practice and the practice of other staff members in the pharmacy where they work. Superintendent and supervising pharmacists should use these observations and learnings to review the policies and procedures in their pharmacies and ensure all staff are trained on, and following them.
