  • The recent floods

    Our Society has issued all Branch Secs with a reminder that pharmacists and their widows/widowers who suffered in the recent floods may be eligible for help from the Benevolent Fund.
    Homes and businesses are probably insured (although I would suspect that there could be problems with some of the former). However, there may well be elderly or otherwise vulnerable colleagues (and their spouses) who may not be properly provided for and who may be glad of some extra help.

    The Benevolent Fund may be contacted on 01323890135 or [email protected].

    So if anyone is affected, or know anyone who is, contact them. Everything is dealt with in strict confidence.

    Some time ago, while working in a hospital I met a widow of a pharmacist. Her friend told me she was having all sorts of problems, so I contacted the Fund and I am assured they were able to help her considerably.

      Depends on how busy the place is - there is a massive scope for variation. The few pharmacists I know who own their own practice are earning from 70k - 200k a year. There is the possibility of more, but there is also the possibility of a failed business, bankruptcy and humiliation if things don't work out - even more so now because the goodwill and property costs of buying a pharmacy have risen tremendously.

        The big risk used to be leapfrogging (any 1980s pharmacists will remember this). This always put me off. EPSR2 might result in 'electronic leapfrogging' if the script nominations land-grab happens. The main worry at the moment is another pharmacist coming a long and opening a 100 hour pharmacy. This is happening to a friend and colleague at the moment.

            leapfrogging is where someone opens a pharmacy between you and your main surgery.

            NSPC negotiated controlled entry and in return gave up on cost profit.

            Naturally the govnmt reneged on their part of the bargain by allowing 100 hour pharmacies. Usual story in pharms dealing with govnmt. Pharm gives, gvnmt takes away.

              On-cost was a percentage of the purchase price and was documented in the Tariff of the day. GP10A in Scotland still get paid on-cost or they did last time I needed the Scottish Tariff.
