SOP and compliancy
PDA has up to date versions of South African Pharmacy Council compliant operational SOPs available, which are customised for your pharmacy and are ideal for pharmacists in the process of applying for a license or registering as a training site. This set of SOPs is based on GPP principles and are available in hard copy for easy storage and implementation in the pharmacy.
PDA offers consulting services and assistance for pharmacists who need to apply for a pharmacy license at the DOH due to relocations, change of ownership or new applications. As part of this service we can assist in pharmacy layout planning and compilation of SOPs. We also offer assistance to pharmacists on how to log CPD activities and apply for tutorship.
