Concession for implementing pharmacy services

Based on the criteria, set with the health-care plan of the Republic of Slovenia, a municipality or city publishes a public tender for implementing pharmacy activities and acquiring a concession.

The concession for implementing pharmacy activities is granted by the competent administrative authority of the municipality or city in agreement with the ministry responsible for health care, i.e. after an advance opinion of the Chamber of Pharmacies and the Health Insurance Institute of the Republic of Slovenia.

The decision on the concession also determines the territory where the pharmacy services can be provided.

An individual who wants to implement pharmacy activities, can acquire the concession only for one area.

The concession provider and the concessionaire conclude a concession contract regulating mutual relations in connection with the performance of pharmacy services, the conditions for the concessionaire, the start of the concession, the deadline for terminating the concession and the means that the concession provider provides for implementing pharmacy services.

The concession contract is concluded in written form.
