Question: 
Which of these medicines do you dispense most often?

Das Bhambra, Community pharmacist

This is Cat M karma, if NHS wants to pay a pittance compared with other countries then no wonder we are being boycotted. No surprise stock returns once concessions are granted.

Dave Downham, Manager

...and still 3 weeks to go. Absolute farce.

Syd Bashford, Community pharmacist

Levetiracetam 500mg ?????? Why not there!!! The stress is getting too much....
