December 17, 2009

The attached document has been prepared under the auspices of a Pharmacy Pandemic Preparedness Group, chaired by the Chief Pharmacist at the Department of Health and Children, and comprising pharmacists from the PSI, HSE, DoHC and IPU.

These recommendations are in relation to the preparation of a business continuity plan for a retail pharmacy business responding to the influenza pandemic and are intended to be helpful to superintendent, supervising and other pharmacists in the planning and management of their response to the pandemic. The recommendations reflect many of those included in the Forfas publication Business Continuity Planning – responding to an Influenza Pandemic which is available on the Forfas website.
