Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Pharmacies supplying Covid-19 tests

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has revised their COVID questions and answers for pharmacy owners, including around the supply of tests for COVID-19 from pharmacies. 

GPhC have explained they do not have the jurisdiction or capability to form their own view on the legality, safety or efficacy of particular types of tests or kits, or the advisability of their use in public health terms. Their approach is to support the positions taken by the relevant authorities, including the MHRA and the public health bodies, on whether it is appropriate to offer particular types of COVID-19 test at the current time.

Further details can be viewed on the updated GPhC Covid -19 testing kits Q+A for pharmacy owners.
