C+D spoke to Dr Hodge at a Westminster event run by the all-party parliamentary group on primary care and public health last week (July 12).
Less pay for more work - what other "profession" does this??? Pharmacy is no longer a profession imo.
Cuts will decrease clinical imput from pharmacists, as the cuts will force activity to be driven by what will bring in what little income we can get. Unless he is proposing that we are going to be paid for more clinical work?
Sorry, but community pharmacy is exceedingly profitable, hence the voracious appetite to acquire pharmacy contracts. Cuts simply mean the maintenance of net profit by increasing workload, reducing wages, cutting staff hours and the more rapid (and more dubious) ticking of boxes to meet 'clinical' targets.
Same old, same old. Put another record on.
