Public Consultations

The Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland (PSI) carries out regular public consultations so that the opinion and input of our stakeholders is considered in the work we are undertaking.

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.

Public consultation on the draft revised Code of Conduct for Pharmacists

The PSI has been conducting a review of the Code of Conduct for pharmacists over the last year, which included a consultation process on the existing Code in 2017. Following this consultation, and engagement with relevant experts, the Code has been revised and updated and we are now inviting feedback on the draft through a public consultation.

The Code is a public declaration of the principles and ethical standards which govern pharmacists in the practice of their profession and which the public, patients, other healthcare professionals and society require and expect from pharmacists as frontline health professionals.

This public consultation on the draft revised Code of Conduct provides an important opportunity for you to have your say on what the Code may contain. Please consider the revised Code and provide your feedback by completing this online survey. Alternatively, you may wish to provide your comments by email to or by post to Code of Conduct Review, PSI House, 15-19 Fenian Street, Dublin 2, D02 TD72. The consultation process will close at 5pm on Monday, 27 August 2018.
