  • Estonian independent pharmacies to strike over abolition of establishment restrictions
    are not interested in health care only in business We have to do everything possible and more to stand up for our sphere and to ensure that residents of rural areas in Estonia continue to get professional advice and affordable access to medicines Shortly before Christmas the Supreme Court abolished the temporary pharmacy establishment restrictions that the parliament established in June last year to gain extra time to develop measures to protect independent and rural pharmacies As a result the pharmacy market is completely free now to establish new pharmacies Critics say that this will result in a surge of new pharmacies opening in cities while independent pharmacies including most of the rural pharmacies will be pushed out of the market In mid January the Riigikogu will have the second reading of the amendments to the Pharmaceuticals Act which pharmacists say gives large chains a free hand to take over the entire market However this bill does nothing to help the availability of the service in rural areas There are currently around 120 pharmacies in Estonia that are owned by the pharmacists themselves most of which are in smaller towns in rural areas The last set of figures from the start of last year show that there are a total of 506 pharmacies in Estonia the majority of which belong to large foreign pharmacy chains Comments Related Articles Concept of foreign policy has changed for Estonia Medieval ships uncovered beneath Tallinn building sites Go Rail ends Tallinn Moscow service for economic reasons Subscribe Advertise Log In Please enter your username and password Forgot your password Login Related Articles Japan follows Estonia s lead with electronic ID cards Right wing parties launch 24 hour anti migrant rally Right wing parties launch 24 hour anti migrant rally in Tallinn The battle for
