        No I don't think so. I would guess a consultant pharmacist has a higher position. I have been a clinical pharmacist myself, but wouldn't have classed myself as a consultant!

          Times have changed - I called myself a consultant pharmacist before PCTs began and I used to sell my services to GP's.

          Then the PCTs arrived and undercut me.

              Hiya Linnear
              you sure do mate....what's your stress..
              Cool it mate at the rate your going you might suffer a coronary.....its not worth the aggro ....
              I work for a PCT and I think PAYE PCT pharmacists do a fantastic job for peanuts .......by the way Linnear...you can still offer your professional services to GPs via the new PBC (practice based commissioning) model..so don't worry and by the way most PCTs are now doing away with your pharmacist colleagues anyway

                Had a run in with a PCT member a few years ago. I've got a real problem with dealing with arseholes who put themselves above everyone else with no real reason for it. That's why I didn't follow my Dad into the Navy.

                A shop I work in does BP testing now. I tested mine the other day much to everyone's enjoyment. They were expecting 250/190. Actually it was 143/86. I reckon the fact that I blow like Vesuvius over every little thing helps keep the stress down. No bottling up for me!

                I know now that there are good pharmacists on PCTs and am trying to not let the red mist rise. But must try harder, must try harder, must try harder.

                  Oh, that's a good news. The job must be very important and useful in the hosptital.

                        I thought it was the posh name Boots gave their employee pharmacists--I'm sure I saw badges with that on it a few years back.

                          I used to have one...a boots "consultant pharmacist" badge - they gave that title to any pharmacist that had been with the company for 18mths. I left a while back. Looking back, I think if you got one, it almost resigned you to the fact that you were a boots clone. They have got rid of it now I think. Handing my name badge and locker key was probably the best move I ever made

                            There are a few firms which offer a kind of a hyrid between business and pharmacy consultancy. It involves an experienced pharmacist going tp pharmacies and showing them how to make the most of their businesses such as how to maximise profit from correct endorsing and organising logistics to maximise profits...

                              Interesting. Are you able to post links to the 'few firms' who provide this service? If so please do.
