Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD)

Monday, May 14, 2018

FMD becomes law on Feb 9th 2019.

We are working with NES to develop training materials for everyone in Community Pharmacies across Scotland. There will be an introductory programme, followed by a more detailed one, which will be the main topic of the NES Autumn programme. The CPS Policy Team (Adam and Amanda) will also run some “train the trainer” events to ensure there are plenty of experts across Scotland to support our pharmacy teams to deliver FMD. The training will also be available on webinar and power point for anyone who wants to use these formats in their own pharmacies and training sessions.

The training programmes will be available in July, ready for the training to take place Aug-Nov.

If you have any questions or need further support, please get in touch with Amanda.
