England’s deputy chief pharmaceutical officer has highlighted the “mixed” uptake of pharmacy training programmes as a potential “barrier” to greater investment in the sector.
- 1Amending regulations to allow pharmacists to dispense an alternative in cases of medicines shortages could result in pharmacists breaking the law, sector bodies have said.
RT @KPritchard1004: @ChemistDruggist @BruceWarner @NHSEngland @APPGPharmacy @JulieForBurnley Not all pharmacists have the same skills but use of “clinical pharmacist” within the NHS scheme is wrong. Many of the those employed into it have come straight from community but use the title immediately, did they learn those skills in their sleep the night before starting?

RT @Babir1981: Hi, I'm a community pharmacist. You might know me from some of my greatest hits like: "Oh you have a taxi waiting?" "I'm sorry naproxen is unavailable","Amoxicillin tablets don't exist" "I don't know why your GP didn't prescribe it" "Yes we're open" and "Yes, I'm clinical too" https://t.co/ZkmfK8nRAZ
