Pharmacy licences denied over “spacing” in addresses

The President of the Pharmacy Board of Trinidad and Tobago is alleging that the Ministry is misleading the public regarding the delay in the issue of practising certificates for pharmacies

Dr Andrew Rahaman made the claim while speaking this morning on Power 102 Digital’s Power Breakfast Show.

Dr Rahaman claimed that the delay is being wrongly ascribed to the Pharmacy Board when the delays are due to issues at the Ministry.

He accused the Health Ministry of stymying the issuing of the licenses required for pharmacies to operate by making minor issues a problem.

He cited examples of the Ministry’s refusal to accept the phrase “point five” rather than “one half” and rejecting applications due to the spacing between letters and numbers in an address such as “88 A” Abercromby Street.
