  • Status...

    What is everyone's opinion on status. For me status is when people in society have respect to you due to your profession. We already know that people don't take much of a great view of us as we don't do much 'bar count pills'. But is anyone bothered by status and respect?

    At the end of the day if you are a doctor, you have great respect but if you make a mistake people will have a go at you.

    Do you really think that is the case?? From speaking to others I disagree. I think the majority of the general public hold pharmacists in high regard. However I'm begin to think that clinical pharmacists get more respect or have more status as you call it.

    Haven't had much first hand experience of public perception yet though as I am only just starting the Mpharm next month. I certainly had a lot of respect for my local pharmacist. He was actually more helpful than my GP mosy of the time as I was forever popping in for advice with regards to my kids.

      Respect is something which is earned rather than being conferred as a right.

      Whenever I need a pick me up about the profession, I read these words spoken in the Irish House Of Parliament Last year.

      Senator Mary O'Rourke:

      "I wish to comment on Pharmacists, They are the most unsung heroes and heroines of the world today"

      "People have great faith in Pharmacists, sometimes more than they have in Doctors. People seem to believe the gospel from a Pharmacists mouth. I have seen people leave much brighter than when they went in, clutching their packages with whatever is in them".

      "I know from my own experience that Pharmacists have a moderating influence on society which is never strongly spoken or written about. It is a remarkable influence".

      Mary, I love you!

        That quote is so good I will be using it from now.

                Good job it wasn't said to the RPSGB.
                They would assume that the pharmacists in question had done something wrong or expressed a "wrong opinion" in thought, word or deed about something at some point

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

                  as much as I would like not to, I still have to take this with a pinch of salt, i'm sure everyone knows the politics of whats happening with the pharmacy sector in Ireland, and this quote must have been taken from one of the political speeches made in the Irish parliament in support of the pharmacists. How often do people say things in support of the pharmacist in everyday life, when people think of HCPs they dont even think of pharmacists.....

                      yup....in N.Ireland. Maybe im a unionist, those guys there are crazy, I want to know what proportion community pharmacies are multiples and if this fight's been led by the multiples or the independents, all this wouldnt happen in England 'cos the multiples are too greedy,

                        It's actually in the Republic of Ireland. Northern Ireland is in no way involved.

                          Isn't there trouble in both the north and the south?

                          Major problems in the south that will probably shut pharmacies.

                          Minor troubles in the north with the minor ailments scheme that will stop it for a while. Or is that UK wide?

                            Perhaps, but please do not forget that any problems being encountered regarding pharmacy in Northern Ireland have nothing to do with the current situation in the Irish Republic.

                            The two governmental systems in place regarding pharmacy regulation in Ireland are poles apart.
