The Union agrees that a pharmacy policy addressing the supply of medicines containing codeine should be in place. Over the past few years, the IPU has produced a number of Medicines Sales Protocols, designed to assist pharmacists and their staff in the appropriate sales of non-prescription medicines to the public. Indeed, in early December 2009, the IPU and the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association (IPHA) jointly produced a protocol to assist pharmacists inthe sale of medicinescontaining codeine.This protocol was sent to all members of the Unionand can be downloaded from the IPU website. A copy of the protocol is attached to this submission and the PSI is welcome to send it to all pharmacists on the PSI register.
