TALLAHASSEE—The Florida Board of Pharmacy has launched an updated, interactive website to improve communication between Board members and those they serve. The website, www.FloridasPharmacy.gov, is designed to enhance transparency, provide better public service to constituents, and increase the accessibility of services.
The site contains valuable resources for pharmacists, pharmacy interns, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacy permit holders, including the ability to apply for, renew or verify a license. New features encourage public feedback, allowing constituents the opportunity to file complaints.
“To meet the needs of consumers who are increasingly going online, and as pharmacists continue to take on a more prominent role as a part of the total health care team, we as a Board have an added responsibility to protect, promote and improve the health of those we serve,” said Albert Garcia, Chair of the Florida Board of Pharmacy. “The new interactive website provides transparency and efficiency needed for both our citizens and healthcare professionals.”
The new Florida Board of Pharmacy website is the fourth Florida health care practitioner board website to undergo a redesign, following the Boards of Medicine, Nursing and Dentistry.
For more information, please visit www.FloridasPharmacy.gov. To complement this new website, a Twitter account (@FLPharmacyBoard) was also established.
The Department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts.
