Over 250 Inspections Done At Pharmacies Across TT

Two hundred and seventy-two inspections have been conducted at pharmacies across the country to ensure the sale of drugs are safe and within the quality of standard for use by consumers.

The Ministry of Health says the inspections were done from 2019 to 2022.

These inspections ensure unregistered, expired and or illegal drugs are not sold to the general public.

Inspectors can advise and issue warnings based on findings and breaches at pharmacies as they have been advised on previous occasions.

Pharmacists are reminded changes in chemical composition can occur in expired drugs which may pose a serious threat to health of the public.

The Ministry will continue to monitor all pharmacies inclusive of chain pharmacies to ensure the public’s safety.
