The RNZCGP is the professional body that provides training and ongoing professional development for general practitioners and rural hospital generalists, and sets standards for general practice.
A similar application was made and declined in 2014. There are minor modifications in the 2015 application including a reduction in the amount that can be supplied on each occasion from 6 to 3 months. Under the new proposal pharmacists would be able to both initiate and continue supply. A link to a related TV news item is here. The College response to the 2014 application is here.
Also being considered by the MCC in May is pharmacist supply of Nitrofurantoin and the adequacy or otherwise of the MCC’s public consultation process.
The College will be making a submission on these proposals and seeks your input. For more information on the proposals click here. Please send your comments to the policy team before 26 March. You can also send feedback direct to MCC before 3 April.
