VPA Circular No. 32

Welcome to the VPA’s first circular for 2023. 

The VPA recently conducted targeted inspections of pharmacies dispensing high volumes of medicinal cannabis in collaboration with Medicines and Poisons Regulation branch, Department of Health. Key observations are highlighted in this circular. This area will remain an area of focus for the VPA.

An online survey is now available for licensees and pharmacists to provide feedback following an inspection as part of the VPA’s commitment to improving its processes and internal training.

There is a reminder from VPA inspectors to check that the premises has a current and complete set of reference texts and that the pharmacy is ready to meet the increased vaccination workload in the coming months. The circular also includes a summary of recent panel hearings.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Connie Greco for her hard work and significant contributions to the VPA as a Program Officer and inspector. Connie was with the VPA since its inception in 2010 and prior to that she was the Education Officer for the Pharmacy Board of Victoria. She will be greatly missed and we wish her all the best in her next endeavours.
