Safer Pharmacies Charter

PDA members have produced a charter of seven commitments to improve safety and care for patients, through better working conditions in UK pharmacy practice.  This charter defines basic standards to ensure safe practice wherever pharmacists work.

Wed 6th December 2017 The PDA

Keeping patients safe is key to the role of every pharmacist. But less than safe working conditions risk harm to patients as well as damaging consequences for pharmacists – such as impacting on their physical or  mental health.

PDA members have produced a charter of seven commitments to improve safety and care for patients,
through better working conditions in UK pharmacy practice.  This charter defines basic standards to ensure safe practice wherever pharmacists work.

The commitments in the charter should be standard practice whenever and wherever pharmacy work is carried out.   We actively encourage other interested parties to endorse the charter and those who own or manage pharmacies to adopt the charter and ensure the commitments are fulfilled in their pharmacies.
