Have you got the X(rayser) Factor? C+D launches competition to find next star blogger
C+D has launched a writing competition to find a new writer to fill the shoes of Xrayser – the long-running community pharmacy blogger whose true identity remains a secret.
After over a decade of writing for C+D, the current holder of the Xrayser moniker has decided to pass the baton on to a new writer.
C+D is today (May 30) launching a writing competition, The X(rayser) Factor, to determine who the next contractor to write under the Xrayser pseudonym should be.
Open to all community pharmacy contractors across the UK, regardless of gender, age, or ethnicity, applicants to The X(rayser) Factor are being asked to write a satirical, light-hearted blog of no fewer than 300 words and no more than 600 words on one of the following topics:
The most unusual interaction you’ve had with a patient in the past month
Your experience of implementing a new clinical service
Your experience of balancing the books within the context of pharmacy funding in your country.
Applicants must be able to commit to writing a monthly blog for C+D, which should make light of current events in community pharmacy in the irreverent style Xrayser has become notorious for.
All applications will remain anonymous so that the identity of the new Xrayser remains a mystery, with the winning blog published on the C+D website and its writer sworn in as the new Xrayser.
