Feedback for Proposed Changes to the Public Register – Phase 2 (By-law No 3)

Pharmacist  ·  Dec. 23, 2014

It is an act of privacy and protecting the pharmacist confidentiality and protecting our picture in front of the public. As a pharmacist, when I am out of my duty, I am part of the public, when I go to any pharmacy to dispense my son's or daughter's prescription, I am also part of the public, so why you wan to expose for example my records to other people. you are invading my privacy and you are exposing me not as a pharmacist but as a member of the community.. And as OCP who devoted it's mission to protecting the public you are not protecting me by exposing these information to the public. Even if we want to release information about a drug addict we can't unless we have a court order. Also I see no use or an extra work of no benefit to the people by giving certain info about pharmacists education, university of graduation, or other detailed info about his background, licenses and services or special services that he/she as a pharmacist can do. all of that are already on the web or some of it and it is an act of unequal distribution of opportunities and breach of main principle fair commercial opportunities and advertisement capacity since not all can do that . this will also ignite stereotyping and racism by directing people to certain names, universities or other indirect information that might indirectly identify the pharmacist to the public and this will lead to direct business loss and ethnic identifying. I think all what people need to know is where the pharmacies are and what services they could do without info about the pharmacists who work there. Even police and the judge can`t release these information unless there is a court order. I see no benefit of releasing criminal or reprimand activities of the members to the public at all.
