Forward View: making it happen

Cop out from Capita

Friday September 2 I see an email from a Capita official which simultaneously acknowledges a problem and abdicates responsibility. Apparently, the regional team received a large number of queries from London contractors regarding missing payments for August but the email states: “As Capita is contracted to manage and make monthly payments on behalf of NHS England, they should be contactedat PCSE.enquiries@nhs.net, copying the London Regional team at england.lon- pharmacy@nhs.net.” The email does not make any apology nor does it mention the financial impact on contractors.

Presented with a fait accompli

It was gratifying to see the media coverage of the government’s cost-cutting measures for community pharmacy this past week or so. No matter that the spokeswoman from Pharmacy Voice on Radio 4’s Today programme seemed a bit nervous, the message was clear: community pharmacy is facing big cuts and pharmacies will close. Establishment payments will reduce from December, with a 12 per cent cut in the global sum from December to March, followed by a 7.4 per cent cut in 2017-18. The pharmacy minister, David Mowat, calls them ‘efficiency savings.’ They are weasel words.

Onlooker on Brexit

As a result of the Brexit vote, the free movement of pharmacists to the UK from EU countries could eventually come to an end. But presumably this will not mean that they could not come at all. If there is, as promised, an Australian-style points-based system for immigration then some might pass the points barrier. However, if points are related to need they might not be welcome, since the unrestrained schools of pharmacy in the UK are churning out too many pharmacists and the DH wants to reduce pharmacy numbers with its remuneration cuts.
