  • Serious questions

    With the 'responsible pharmacist' coming into place and may I ask when, is there a hitch on our job security. Also with remote supervision, is it likely in the future the job of the pharmacist will be undermined.

    I also heard today that electronic prescriptions will be coming through so I am wondering how this may affect us.

    Finally will the pay ever go up for us?

    As a student I was hoping for some answers.

    All these new ideas promulgated by CCA etc to try to reduce shortage of pharmacists and hence pay. Pay is controlled by supply and demand. ie more pharmacists = lower pay.

            Its full of wonderful opportunities for... well someone.
            Why not have a read of it?

            If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.

              if we're lucky they'll keep on umming and arrring about it until they get too close to the general election - then the conservatives will get in and give us a whole new set of poorly thought out legal hoops to jump through...

                But I thought all of this was already in place.

                  green paper = suggestion of a bill
                  white paper = main outline of a bill, debated in parliament and at committee stage until acceptable details agreed upon
                  bill = proposed change in law presented fully to parliament for debate and vote in commons. once passed in commons goes to lords for further debate and vote, then passed to queen for royal assent, signed & becomes an Act of parliament.

                  so in other words a white paper still has a long way before it becomes law and it could still (hopefully) fall through...
