Going, going, gone!

It has been an enormous privilege and I have been fortunate enough to be asked to speak at several weddings, forums all over the world, and even three eulogies. Two of these requests came from patients’ families, and at the last one the priest joked he was scared because it sounded like I could do his job! But an old university friend who’d been let down at the last minute gave me a unique invitation that I couldn’t refuse. We met at her local town hall, which was stuffed to the gunwales with people who’d donated prizes. There were dozens of them, and I know because I was the auctioneer.

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.
