Merry QIPmas from the QCPP team!

You can visit the Knowledge Hub and the QCPP website for general support during this time. Here you will find a wide range of resources including FAQs, support videos and fact sheets.
Compliance during the Holiday Season
As we enter the festive season, QCPP would like to remind accredited pharmacies that chocolate or confectionery that contains alcohol or includes alcoholic beverages in marketing, cannot be sold in the pharmacy.
The Quality Care 2020 Requirement related to this subject (4.2.5) intends to ensure that pharmacy stock and services promotes your pharmacy as a healthcare destination.
Chocolate or confectionery that contains alcohol or alcoholic flavourings (for example Jim Beam, champagne truffles etc.) cannot be sold. Similarly, products that use alcoholic beverages in their marketing cannot be sold as this is a form of promotion.
