Falsified Medicines Training (FMD) Training Events

Thursday, October 25, 2018


The Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) becomes law on 9th February 2019. In preparation for this, the Community Pharmacy Working Group have produced a document: 'The Way Forward for FMD in Community Pharmacy'. This contains detail of the overall process for the implementation and operation of FMD in community pharmacies, and it is therefore important that pharmacy teams read and understand the details.

In addition, we are working with NES to provide support for pharmacy teams. This support includes a short video (available on Turas Learn), followed by training and engagement events across Scotland later in the autumn programme.

We are delivering 4 face to face events and we encourage pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from neighbouring boards to attend their nearest event, or to log into the webinar. For more information and to book on, please visit: https://portal.scot.nhs.uk/.
