A calmer view

Last month I was very angry. I’ve now calmed down and taken the time to read properly the letter sent by the Department of Health to PSNC concerning the proposed funding cuts. The dictatorial tone of the letter is set by its threats of cuts and closures, so a knee-jerk response is unsurprising. However, the stakeholder briefing for the future of community pharmacy is much more positive. It acknowledges the vital role of community pharmacy, and that we could play a much greater role in optimising medicines, treating minor ailments, supporting people with long-term conditions, preventive care and promoting better health.

England and Scotland: compare and contrast

I can’t help comparing and contrasting the situation facing community pharmacists in England with those in Scotland. In both countries, pharmacists are being urged by the powers that be to operate more clinically. The difference is that in Scotland, crucially, they are paid for it. There is already in Scotland a national minor ailments scheme – conspicuous by its absence south of the border – and the national chronic medication service, where pharmacists can manage the treatment of those on a stable regime.

NHS close-up

Never a week goes by these days when the NHS isn’t an entire news story. Normally we would admire, empathise and support the stresses and pressures, but until you become a patient you can’t really write a meaningful sentence about it. Since January I’ve had a bad upper respiratory tract infection. What started as a few days of non-stop coughing gave way to conking out mid-cough. It happened anytime, anywhere and after the frequency of attacks increased from once daily up to 10 or more times daily, I called 111.
