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.

OK computer

For most of us, the realms of IT stretch to sitting down with a cuppa, cranking up the computer, deleting every third email on the basis that if it was important they’d send it again, and checking the news on an app. I am no different, although I did chair the Pan- Pharmacy Information Management and Technology Group for six years after arguing how valuable such a committee would be for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. It’s now called the Pharmacy Digital Forum and is no less important. When we started out we were talking about IT being a luxury to help our workload. Now it’s an obligatory tool we can’t do without. Back then we were about doing more with our glorified labelling machines.

Question time

The season of flu vaccination is upon us and I have been busy doing my online refresher training, promoting the service, getting the staff trained up, checking and signing PGDs, notifying NHS England and ‘prepping’ the PR. Last year I alone did 800 NHS and private vaccinations and, although we can vaccinate right through until March 2017, the next two months without doubt will be our busiest – so busy that I envisage we will transmogrify from a community pharmacy into a ‘co-immunity pharmacy’!

Striking out

I write something, press the button and wonder. I wonder who will read it and what response it will have. A few months ago I wrote about the junior doctors’ strike, and by about lunchtime my Facebook page and in-box had melted. Blimey, are there some hacked-off junior doctors out there! If there was a composite letter it would say: “Thrilled to become a doctor, hate what the profession will become”. Add to that, “wish I did something else”, and you’ll get the flavour.
