Community pharmacists could be hit by cuts of between €20,000 and €25,000 each- under plans by Government to decrease the fees paid to pharmacists from the 1st January next.

That's according to the Fianna Fail deputy leader Dara Calleary, who raised the matter during Leaders Questions in the Dáil yesterday (Thursday).

 The Government intends to cut the Community Pharmacy budget by €45 million in the New Year, which will impact on all local community pharmacies and the services they offer, according to Deputy Calleary.

 The Mayo TD told Midwest News today that he has  called on Government to suspend the planned cuts, to allow for urgent negotiations on a new contract with pharmacists.
