Pharmacists fear for patient safety as DHBs exceed LTC service patient caps

LTC patient caps
At least three DHBs have reached their annual cap for the number of people allowed to sign up to LTC pharmacy services
Waikato DHB is no longer allowing new patients to sign up to Long Term Condition pharmacy services because it has reached its patient quota.
