The functioning of the pharmacy market in Poland is subject to strict statutory regulation. In striving to ensure the widest availability of services provided by generally accessible pharmacies to patients, the legislator introduced a solution consisting in granting county (‘powiat’) councils the power to issue local acts of law regarding the establishment of working hours of generally accessible pharmacies locally. Compliance with this obligation, however, faces various difficulties on the part of both pharmacies and self-government bodies, which negatively affects the effectiveness of the existing solution. The subject of this article is the assessment of existing legal solutions in the discussed area, together with a review of the proposed statutory changes developed by pharmacies self-government and the Association of Polish Counties (‘powiat’).

Funkcjonowanie rynku aptekarskiego w Polsce podlega ścisłej regulacji ustawowej. Dążąc do zapewnienia jak najszerszej dostępności usług świadczonych przez apteki ogólnodostępne dla pacjentów, ustawodawca wprowadził rozwiązanie polegające na przyznaniu radom powiatów uprawnienia do wydawania aktów prawa miejscowego w przedmiocie ustalenia rozkładów godzin pracy aptek ogólnodostępnych na obszarze powiatów. Wypełnianie tego obowiązku napotyka jednak różne trudności ze strony zarówno aptek, jak i organów samorządu, co wpływa negatywnie na efektywność rozwiązania. Przedmiotem artykułu jest ocena istniejących rozwiązań prawnych w omawianym zakresie i omówienie proponowanych zmian ustawowych opracowanych przez samorząd aptekarski i Związek Powiatów Polskich.
