I think the pharmacist is entitled for a lunch break to ensure the pharmacist will be able to provide high level of pharmaceutical are till the end of their shift. Maybe more regulation and details need to be put back n place in term of if pharmacist can leave premises or not, if pharmacist lunch breaks being interrupted for an emergency intervention, definition of an emergency situation, lock and leave option, ensuring continuity of care, posting regular lunch hours along with operating hours on door sign, IVR. May be changing regulations around what pharmacy technician an do during these lunch time may help to ensure the continuity of pharmacy service provision. Minimum wage should not affect pharmacist pay as pharmacist is not getting paid anywhere close to minimum. Working public holidays has to be an optional as currently there is problem filling those holidays with relief pharmacist. More definition is needed around personal emergency leave for pharmacist and also what steps to ensure taken to ensure continuity of care.
