Written answers (Question to Health)

Officials in my Department will engage in a consultation on fees with the Irish Pharmacy Union in the autumn, to allow for the continuation of a statutory basis for the payment of fees from 2020 onward.

It is my intention to commence a broader discussion on contractual and service arrangements following this in 2020.
