Doctor in the House: Dispensing Rights–Pharmacists or Doctors?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Who should have the right to dispense medications: doctors or pharmacists? This has been an ongoing debate in Malaysia. At the recent World Pharmacists Day, Health Minister Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad said that the issue of dispensing separation should be understood from the perspective of patients. We speak to Amrahi bin Buang, President of the Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society to see whether this is in line with improving the role of pharmacists in Malaysia.
