An, as yet unnamed, island pharmacy has been granted a licence to dispense cannabis based medicines.
The procurement exercise for this service recently closed, and following evaluation of responses, one local pharmacy has been offered the licence.
The gov is now working through the contract formalities with the pharmacy to commence the service at the earliest opportunity, aiming to have the provision in place in the coming months.
The successful candidate will provide an import and dispensing service for medicinal cannabis products to residents with a private prescription. The successful pharmacy will be announced next week.
