Had an Rx this morning for Chloral hydrate paed BP.

Spoke to AAH specials dept and was a little miffed that the woman didn't udnerstand that 'BP' implied a strength.
She then phoned back and totally pissed me off by saying that the bloke at MARTINDALE was confused by the strength!

I ranted on and had to apologise to the woman TWICE because after apologising the first time I got worked up again!

I ask you, pharmacists have been effectively sidelined for extemp dispensing and the specials manufacturers charge £90 for 300ml of chloral paed and they don't know what 'BP' means!
