  1. I’ve been a pharmacist for several years and I am so confused about pharmacy, let alone patients!

    Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? Essential/advanced/enhanced? Services? Payment structures? PCTs? SHAs? PSNC? GPhC? RPSGB (I will always hate them!!!)? NHS? GP consortia?

    Sometimes the only thing that makes relaxes me is seeing some form of stability. Consistency of some kind. Something you can expect and doesn’t give you a shock each time you experience it. Instead you can warmly welcome it after having waited for it’s arrival.

    There’s precious few of those types of things in pharmacy these days. But luckily there are a few. Like slashes to funding. Like the way Pharmacy has become dog-eat-dog from ‘can’t see in the morning’ until ‘can’t see at night’. Like the corporate drive behind patient care which was once genuine and relaxed. Like the sly, backstabbing, undercutting nature of competing pharmacies which has become more and more rife by the day.

  2. I love this, i would like my medication to be dispensed in one min please, while jerry kyle is on and can i have the red coloured, strawberry flavoured capsules please as the white chalky tablet ones give me a rash. Thanks!
