RPSGB provides logo to make online drug purchases safer

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain launches a new internet logo scheme to help people validate authentic websites for their online medicine purchases
In order to make the purchase of drugs on the web safer, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (RPSGB) has launched a new internet logo scheme to help people validate authentic websites for their online purchases. The logo will appear on registered websites including a hyperlink to the society's website where visitors can verify the registration details of both the pharmacy and pharmacist. According to the RPSBG, approximately 2.3 million people in the UK buy prescription medicines online, but up to one third of these medicines are fake and present a danger to peopleís health. Research also reveals that many UK citizens are unaware of online regulations for medical sites, with 1 in 20 believing that foreign websites are fully regulated.
