Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our principal function is to ensure patient safety and public protection. We are committed to carrying out our work independently, ethically and transparently.

Our Mission

We protect the health, safety and wellbeing of patients and the public by taking timely and effective action to ensure that pharmacists in Ireland are competent and that pharmacies are operating to high standards of safety and reliability.

Our Vision

That the public has access to trusted pharmacy services and that the PSI makes a clear and demonstrable contribution to the availability and quality of those services.
