Independent pharmacists to challenge Act in court

A group of independent pharmacists, the Council of Independent Community Pharmacy Owners (CICPO), are going to file an application in court to challenge the province’s Pharmacy Act. The Act among other things sets in place the rules and guidelines for government negotiations with pharmacists – which CICPO contends the government is violating in its talks with the Pharmacists’ Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (PANL). CICPO believes they are not properly represented in PANL and that they have a lot to lose with impending changes in legislation, while the government in turn believes that PANL does in fact represent independent pharmacies and insists it will work only with PANL on a new deal.
