Employed community Pharmacists in Europe

The new government (coalition between conservatives and right-wing) starting in December 2017 has already changed a lot of regulations. Impacts on pharmacists will have, to a certain degree, the new regulations on working time (maximum working time per day 12 h) and the projected changes for the social insurances. The number of Health Insurances will most certainly be reduced to 3 (one for employees in private sector, one for self-employed, one for employees in state sector), but the impacts on employee pharmacists are yet not known.
