Pharmacy Law and Practice, Fifth Editionprovides a straightforward and useable guide for students, practitioners, academics and others interested in pharmacy law and practice in the United Kingdom. This multi-dimensional book includes discussions of socio-political influences on legal developments to provide greater insight to the reader. It clearly sets out the background to regulatory issues together with simple and practical statements of what a pharmacist has to do to obey the law. As in previous editions, this book discusses topics thematically rather than by statute. It is a unique and reader-friendly guide that boils down the complex or difficult language of the law, describes the reasons behind it, and illustrates the application to pharmacy practice.

  • Takes an intuitive, problem-solving approach and discusses topics thematically rather than by statute to show how all of the larger pieces fit together

Editorial Reviews

"Written in plain language especially for pharmacy students and pharmacists without legal background, this reference/text examines the UK law related to pharmacy practice in a broad socio-political context and provides practical advice on how to follow regulatory guidelines. This fifth edition is completely revised in light of recent changes to the law. It offers new material on employment law, Internet pharmacies, controlled drugs, non-medical prescribing, and veterinary medicines."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013 "This book on pharmacy law and practice describes the law rather than just listing the acts and cases that make up the law applying to community pharmacy. Many chapters further describe the law in great detail for various.areas of community pharmacy. Since new laws are always being implemented, each edition has been a complete rewrite. The previous edition was published in 2006.", December 20, 2013
