Regional Pharmaceutical Chambers are sounding the alarm. From December 1, a change will come into force that may make it difficult for patients to access medicines

According to the “ABC Zdrowie” portal, an important change regarding pharmacies will come into force on December 1. Unfortunately, it can be very severe for patients. Some patients may have trouble filling their prescriptions. Get to know the details!

Regional Pharmaceutical Chambers sound the alarm

District Pharmaceutical Chambers warn that a change will come into force from December 1, which may potentially make it difficult for patients to fulfill their prescriptions. A problem may arise when pharmacists in the Central Register of Pharmacists (hereinafter: CRF) have an incorrect PESEL number or do not have it at all.

These pharmacists will not be able to generate a prescription fulfillment document (DRR) and finally sell the drug to the patient. Hence the appeal from the regional medical chambers for pharmacists to carefully check their data in the CRF to avoid putting patients in a difficult position.

If a pharmacist notices an error, then it is necessary to report to the appropriate regional pharmacy chamber, as only it is able to correct the detected error. The good news for patients is that the described problem will be marginal or will not appear at all.
