The BCPS pharmacy is on the verge of closing its doors
The BCps Pharmacy is closing its pharmacy hours on Saturday and will not reopen until Friday, March 4.articleThe pharmacy’s Facebook page has since been deleted.
The pharmacy is owned by Vancouver-based Dillons Pharmacy, which is located at 588 Broadway in Victoria, the city’s east side.
The Vancouver Post reported that it had notified the BCPS of the closure and that the BCps was working with the BC Pharmacy Society, the province’s independent drug safety agency, to reopen the pharmacy.
Dillons has not responded to a request for comment.
In a statement, the BC PSC said it is not responsible for any lost or stolen medication.
“The BCPPS is responsible for ensuring that any medication lost or misused by patients is returned to the patient.
When medication is not returned to patients, the pharmacy’s staff is responsible to ensure that it is properly packaged and placed in safe storage.
The BCPPG has a full-time pharmacist working full-day shifts and will be conducting an inventory of lost and stolen medication as a result of the situation,” the statement read.
The BC PPG has been in operation since 2008 and is a partnership between the BC College of Pharmacy and the BC Society for Pharmacists to offer pharmacy services in Victoria.
The B.C. College of Pills and Surgeons has been a long-time advocate for drug safety and said that the closure was unfortunate.
“We do know that the B.S.P.S., the BCPTS and the BPS are working together on the issue of drug safety in BC and we hope that all parties will work together to resolve the situation as soon as possible,” Dr. Peter Nall told CBC News.
