Fraudulent Prescriptions

The Veterinary Medicines Directorate is seeking to gather information on the instances of tampered or fraudulent prescriptions for veterinary medicines. A paper has been put together by the VMD with a number of questions in relation to this issue and they would be grateful for comments, in particular from the veterinary profession and pharmacists. They are also seeking suggestions on how to improve this area.

The paper can be found on the VMD website: under “what’s new”.
