Pharmacists say they have heard nothing about the proposed bill since last year.
There are currently over 14,000 registered pharmacists in the country, one to every 2,344 citizens.
Newly hired doctors, pharmacists, and dentists will be given permanent positions based on merit, says report.
The purpose of this letter is to address the shortcomings of a statement made by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak under Budget 2017 that was announced on Oct 21 - “To appoint the first group of doctors, dentists and pharmacists on contract latest by December 2016 due to constraints in permanent post. In other words, nearly 2,600 doctors without housemanship will now serve on contract”.
