Items missing from transfer list
From Miss D. Cope, MRPharmS
When I saw “POM to P — the light at the end of the tunnel” on your cover (PJ, 2 February), I thought, at last, chloramphenicol eye-drops and trimethoprim for female cystitis are sure to be among the items given P status. However, after careful reading of the list on p132, I see they are not.
So, we can be trusted to supply antibiotics for acne and impetigo, hormone replacement therapy and products for female incontinence, but not chloramphenicol for conjunctivitis or a three-day supply of trimethoprim for cystitis. Why are these not included?
