Urgent advice for community pharmacies in response to The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 which came into operation at 11pm on 28 March 2020.

From the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer Cathy Harrison

The recent announcement on social distancing has raised some concerns from community pharmacy employers committed to maintaining services whilst adhering to guidance and legislation to protect their staff and the public.

All community pharmacies in Northern Ireland should open for business as normal and continue to follow the specific guidance for pharmacies in the HSCB Community Pharmacy FAQs and the Staff Protection Checklist which is available at: www.hscbusiness.hscni.net/services/3124.htm as well as general guidance on social distancing available at: www.publichealth.hscni.net/news/covid-19-coronavirus‘.

The FAQs will be updated on an ongoing basis with new questions or updates to answers in response to the latest information and guidance becoming available.
