Mr Rojo Mettle Nunoo, Deputy Minister of Health, on Wednesday asked pharmacists to reposition their professional practice to meet the substantial demand for medical care, posed by the coverage of the National Health Insurance Scheme.

“Your untapped professional skills in the face of the unmet expectations of the client constitute the platform for refocusing on a new business model for pharmacy practice in Ghana,” he said. Mr. Mettle-Nunoo made the request in a speech read on his behalf at the 2010 launch of Continuing Education Training for pharmacists, organised by the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana (PSGH) in conjunction with the Pharmacy Council (PC) Accra.
