C+D unveils new bloggers to chronicle the pharmacy experience

C+D has unveiled a new generation of bloggers to report from the different corners of pharmacy.

The anonymous writers – of whom the first five are being revealed today (see below) – will shed light on different aspects of pharmacy in 2018.

Hear tales from the aisles of a supermarket pharmacy and what really goes on at a GP surgery, or follow a student pharmacist as she contemplates the career paths that lie ahead.

Look to The 'Non-clinical' Pharmacist for musings of the community sector and hear the ups and downs of life as a pharmacy owner from C+D’s newest resident contractor, Sally Butamol.

Deputy editor Lilian Anekwe said: “From the Area Manager to Xrayser’s much-loved columns, anonymous writers have a rich heritage at C+D.

“We’re excited to bring this legacy from C+D’s print history back to the fore online, and call on our readers to suggest topics for this new roster of writers to tackle.”

Meet five of C+D’s new bloggers below:

The Supermarket Pharmacist

The pharmacy manager at a well-known supermarket chain, expect him to always be forthright with his opinions – whether it’s running a 100-hour pharmacy with skeleton staff or fending off head office.

The Student Pharmacist

The Student Pharmacist sees the profession through fresh and enthusiastic eyes – maybe we can all take a leaf out of her book.

The GP Pharmacist

A pharmacist trying to find her identity as she navigates her way through the primary care network.

The ‘Non-clinical’ Pharmacist

He may be close to retirement, but his employer keeps asking him to work one more shift. Many readers will be able to relate to The 'Non-clinical' Pharmacists' tales of juggling daily pharmacy duties with delivering ever-more services.

Sally Butamol

A Scottish contractor who works all hours chasing stock shortages, fending off online competitors and keeping commissioners on her side – while trying to keep herself and her staff sane. 

C+D will be introducing one new blogger each day this week. Today it’s The Supermarket Pharmacist – find out why he has a love-hate relationship with the flu vaccination service.
