Regulator calls for evidence on methadone preparation

THE General Pharmaceutical Council; (GPhC) is calling on patients, the public, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals for evidence supporting their experiences and views on the extemporaneous preparation of methadone.

The evidence will help inform the way in which we develop our standards for pharmacy owners and superintendent pharmacists.

This call for evidence is to provide us with a deeper understanding of the practice and the impact of any changes to the current approach, including the benefits and negative aspects of extemporaneously preparing methadone.
