Feedback for Proposed Revisions to By-law No 3 — Fees & Public Register

Applicant  ·  Sept. 24, 2015

As an aspiring future member of OCP, it's disappointing to see how the financial structure of pharmacy in Ontario seems to devalue pharmacists. Recent government cuts have already limited resources province-wide and incentives to provide quality healthcare is becoming more and more limited. The reality of being a community pharmacist in Ontario right now is working longer hours with less financial incentive. MedsChecks and Professional Opinion take time to complete and do not provide the financial support necessary to run a successful community pharmacy. Yes, patient care will always be our number one priority but by further increasing annual fees, along with non-opposition for government cuts, the profession of pharmacy is being put through a crises with no clear voice of advocacy.
