Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena himself had to experience the malpractices of private pharmacies that put unsuspecting patient’s lives at risk when a pharmacy near the Castle Street Maternity Hospital issued a wrong drug to a prescription given to the Minister on Saturday, a spokesman said.

The pharmacy was later raided and found red handed doing the same and promptly blacklisted by a team headed by the National Drugs and Cosmetics Devices Authority Chairman Dr. Hematha Benaragama on the instructions of Minister Sirisena. (SAJ)

    Its time that doctors explain to their patients on the drugs they have been prescribed, instead of keeping them in the 'dark'

    What more for the others, especially the under privilege and the innocent citizens who have no clue what the Doctors prescribe and what is issued at the pharmacy!

    Nina Kamal Monday, 05 September 2011 05:17 AM
