No New Regulations In Saudi Arabia For Running Pharmacies.

Saudi clinicThe Saudi mentioned that it has not converted its regulations controlling the ownership of clinics and pharmacies and dismissed rumors that rules have been modified in order to enable any Saudi to start up a clinic. Any Saudi may open a clinic or pharmacy regardless the employment of Saudi medical specialist to manage the facility.  These rumors were reported in a sector of local media.

A statement on the ministry’s website explained that “ “The Ministry Of Health Noticed a false report in the local media and on some websites quoting an official source of the ministry without supplying his name or position, The report said that we would soon permit any Saudi citizen to open clinics and pharmacies in a bid to stop the practice of illegally using the names of doctors and pharmacists”.

The order, which stipulates that only Saudi physicians and pharmacists may operate clinics and pharmacies, is the only one which could be modified through long operation including studies in details by specialists concerning the necessary for a modification. The statement noted that the acceptance of the Shoura Council and the Council of Ministers besides a final endorsement from higher authorities is mandatory in order to make the change.

Recently, according to a source at the Ministry of Health, modifications related to the terms and conditions controlling the ownership of private health facilities are being considered. The ministry’s statement reported that no recent regulations were applied until any converts have been decided upon. But a lot of members of the Shoura Council believe that the law stating that only a pharmacist can have a pharmacy should be converted as the regulation could cause corruption in practicing. Moreover, any Saudi should be permitted to have a pharmacy, referring recently that any citizen could have a pharmaceutical factory.
