Question: 
Are there any medicines you think should be on this list?

Wolverine 001 , Pharmacist Director

And when you speak to the LPC about prices and shoratges the answer I got was "oh well you win some and you lose some like all businesses" as if anyone at the LPC know anything about business!!!

Wolverine 001 , Pharmacist Director

And why is felodipine not on the list - hoarding by the wholesalers continues!!!

And just today saline nasal drops have a "manufacturing" problem - ill just tell the patient to make some salt water when they get home.

Stephen Walsh, Community pharmacist

And so the great rip-off carries on for yet another month.....
