Interim statement of Professional Standard: Supply of Over the Counter (OTC) medicines

Pharmacy Guides icon

This interim statement of Professional Standard has been created in response to requests for professional guidance to support the supply of OTC medicines. 

Pharmacy owners, pharmacists and the pharmacy team are expected to work to these professional standards. Ultimately, these standards will help patients experience a consistent quality of service that will protect them from incidents of avoidable harm and help them to get the best outcomes from their medicines.
