  • Despatches from the War on Bugs

    30 JUL 2008

    This blog aims to convey stories of real-world pharmacy practice to you dear reader. As a profession, we don't give ourselves enough credit for the work we do. So it's time to share some tales of how I and other pharmacists from all sectors of the profession are using the full range of pharmacy skills to benefit patients, the NHS and the universe.

  • The asthmatic and the pineapple extract

    1 AUG 2008

    1/8/8A friend who worked in community pharmacy once told me the tale of how he helped out a customer who ran into problems with pineapple extract.

  • A criminal once more

    16 AUG 2008

    Today I think I broke the law.  I'm not 100% sure, as when I see the speedometer pop above the 30mph limit temporarily somewhere you'd hope there was no speed cameras, but technically a misdemeanour did occur.

  • Can't eat due to prescription tax

    21 AUG 2008

    Working my way through the 800+ unread entries on my RSS reader, I came across this entry on the BBC news site:

  • Is there anyone out there?

    23 AUG 2008

    This has now closed, thank you those that took part.  Post has been edited, as you don't need to e-mail me any more.  I'm curious how many people are reading this post.  There's only about 50 people seeming to answer the polls - which out of 40,000 UK pharmacists makes the election turnout look half respectable.

  • Lucid prose

    28 AUG 2008

    I'm not the best at English.  I can get a point across, but am forever indebted to a few colleagues at my hospital that enhance my grammar and spelling.  My written prose always says what I want it to mean, just not quite as clear as I would like it to.Still I doubt I would ever publish something as impenetrable as:

  • Demarcation

    29 AUG 2008

    Being a clinical pharmacist, I couldn't function without technicians.  They're an essential part of the team I work with.   I'm not afraid of them taking over my job, although I can see how some pharmacists who still think they're working in the '80s might see that.

  • Empty spaces waiting to be filled

    31 AUG 2008

    We are now 3 years into an implementation of a computer service called SharePoint at my hospital.  This service is intended to be a step up from the previous intranet, so that trust-wide policies, documents,protocols,assessment records and the like can be kept better organised, rather than out-of-date copies existing in five different places; none of which can be found.

  • Simple is as simple does

    3 SEP 2008

    Recent environmental concerns have convinced us that the world is a system. When we burn fossil fuels, the emissions affect the climate. When we tip rubbish in land-fills, future generations are left with toxic waste. In other words, individual actions sum to greater consequences.
