I don’t like the idea of having non-pharmacist managers. Don’t get me wrong, I am sure they are lovely people and great managers but they don’t fully understand pharmacists.
Its all targets with them. I understand that they are being pressured from above to ensure that we make the company the most money possible. It is frustrating and disheartening for the pharmacist to be harassed to complete services.
I am sure the pharmacist would love to offer a full range of services if they had an ACT/second pharmacist/lots of staff.
I feel fortunate to have a pharmacist as an area manager. I can ring them and ask for advice. However, my friends at other companies are being bullied by people who don’t understand.
Pharmacist managers probably do this too. I just feel that they understand what we go through on a daily basis better than non-pharmacist managers.
What do you think?
