Licenses of Pharmacies selling state drugs will be revoked

Jan 29, 2011 4:24:56 AM - itnnews.lk

The licences of private pharmacies that sell state pharmaceuticals will be cancelled.

The Health Ministry is planning to introduce legislation in Parliament to prevent the sale of state pharmaceuticals in private pharmacies. The new laws will empower the state to institute legal action against employees who sell state owned drugs to the private pharmacies. The Ministry has decided to take this action following reports about a racket of selling such essential drugs from the government hospitals .
