On duty pharmacy system in the evening time on holidays and weekdays
KPA wants more people to access pharmacy services more easily.
Therefore KPA operates on duty pharmacy system as of August, 2007 in the evening time on holidays and weekdays.
After implementation of the medical separation system of pharmacy and medicine, many pharmacies concentrate more into dispensing of prescription medicines and as result, do not work on holidays. Up to now, community pharmacies have operated a voluntary on duty pharmacy system but only few member pharmacies participated in the system and many people complained of inconveniences. Public opinion that people can buy drugs in common markets as well is getting stronger and KPA should stop that opinion.
