Health Minister Says Pharmacists Are Underrated

The Alward Government says it will be making changes to the Pharmacy Act to allow pharmacists to prescribe medications for minor ailments. 

Provincial Health Minister Ted Flemming says pharmacists probably know more about drugs and their effects than other health care professionals.

Flemming points out they have a four year post graduate degree in pharmacology which is the study of drugs and their effects so they do a lot more than just count pills and put them in bottles.
