  • Lloyds and Mur's

    Hi

    I worked at Lloyds today, and they are offering people a free copy of Dr Miriam Stoppards family health book (or similiar) to everyone who agrees to do a MUR with them. Is that taking it a bit too far, or just good business?

    It's a bl***y nightmare!
    As if we weren't put under enough pressure from above to do those wretched MURs, now the punters are begging for 'em too, they all want a free book!
    And to top it all, they've all seen the ad on the telly, and they all want the free diabetes test...
    Ze genuine Article, present & perfect!

      I must say I find it incredibly amusing reading all these rants. I imagine all of you are decent, regular, polite (ok maybe not all of you from what I've read hehe) pharmacists in the real world, so it's quite funny seeing/reading about your lives within another setting. It's nice to be able to see what a real pharmacist's life is like. Very insightful and for that I thank you all

          ... they're offering free medinces box now... Well, I still got loads of boxes / Dr. Miriam books / Diet book / Cholesterol book left in the stock room no doubt still covering with dust I just find it hard to 'recruit' people and never seem to reach my 'target'

            i've been told i now need 15 a week to reach my target for the year. Considering i rarely do more than 2500 items a month (most of which are transient) i haven't got a cat in hell's chance - unless i start setting up beartraps outside the dispensary...

              I've heard enough stories from pharmacy staff about situations when a patient asked to speak to the pharmacist, the reply from the pharmacist was along the line of " tell them to f£$% off".

              I myself quite enjoy talking to patients, especially in busy pharmacies, thats the only chance you get to get out of the dispensary,
