Public survey on medicines administration services in pharmacies

August 14, 2023

The PSI – the pharmacy regulator carried out a survey with the public during August and September 2023 to learn more about some of the services that patients and the public use in pharmacies. 

The results of the survey will be included as part of the PSI’s overall regulatory review of medicines administration in community pharmacies. We would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey.


What was the purpose of the survey?

The PSI carried out a short survey to gather more information on some of the services that patients and the public are using in pharmacies - especially vaccine and medicines administration services. The PSI will use this information to support our work in continuing to assure the safety and effectiveness of pharmacy services. Information like this allows us to regulate more effectively.

What is the PSI?

The PSI is the pharmacy regulator. We are responsible for regulating pharmacists and pharmacies in Ireland and our role is to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of patients and the public who use pharmacy services.
