The Ministry of Health, on behalf of the Government, is running a formal consultation process to gather feedback on a draft of the Therapeutic Products Bill (TPB). The TPB would replace the Medicines Act 1981 and set up a new regulatory scheme for therapeutic products.

The Guild, Green Cross Health and EBOS Limited commissioned Ernst & Young to prepare a report that was completed in June 2017. The report’s focus was to assess the risk of the Government’s proposed removal of the requirement for at least 51% pharmacist-ownership of a community pharmacy.
