Pharmacists want status equal to doctors


Pharmacists have asked the government to give them a status equal to that of MBBS doctors. “We are essential to the medical field as we make and provide medicines and that is why we demand equal status,” said Pakistan Pharmacists Association (PPA) in a press statement after holding a meeting on Sunday.
The meeting was presided over by the association’s president Prof Dr Ali Akbar Sial and attended by PPA Sindh chapter office-bearers. The Pay and Pension Commission needs to review its decision about the pay scales of pharmacists as well, the association said.
