So the hustings are on. One group who don’t have any representation on the PSI Council are the Qualified Assistants. Of course we all know that the PSI would just love them to disappear. (Fat chance of that happening!)
One thing I would like to know is how the eleven candidates feel about the QAs. Do they support the PSI’s preferred new regulations? Do they think that the Pharmacy Act should be amended to recognise the wealth of experience and knowledge of the QAs?
They are a small enough group but they are going to be around for the next 10-12 years at least, that’s 5-6 Council elections. They have already started the process of bringing their case to the High Court so the PSI can’t pretend that this is going away and it can all be swept under the rug.
So will any of our candidates put their head above the parapet? Or maybe they are practicing for their hoped for time on the Council.
Come on! If you have anything to say on the matter just put it in the comments or email me and I’ll put it up there for you.
