    What bright sunny future?

    From what I can see pharmacists will soon be obsolete, unless they work on The Soc Council of course. There'll always be jobs for toadies who'll let the govt walk all over us and tell us that it's good for our preofessional image.

                It's only an opinion, that's what this forum is for. Don't believe everything you read, it's just that us pharmacists tend to get a bit paranoid now and then!

                  For once I don't agree with you admin...its bound to happen but when is the million dollar question; I am so stressed with the present state of pharmacy and its future just makes me feel even more so...i've loved pharmacy for too many years.....my heart's breaking only the society and DOH can mend it..but fat chance of that happening...so I'll just try to look on the bright side of life...and sing "don't worry be happy" to myself (80's hit)

                    Hey, you don't have to agree with me. I started this forum so we could discuss things, and often we will not agree. That's part of the fun of it - letting off some steam!

                    But seriously, try not to get so stressed out about pharmacy and the future. I just think whatever will be will be, and just see what unfolds. I am old enough to remember the life of Brian and the song by the way.

                    I do agree with you that the two bodies you mention won't help us much! Just try not to worry about it all, life is too short. Personally, I just see it as a way of paying the mortgage. I turn up, do my best, and then forget about it until I'm there again. My life does not revolve around my job, and neither should yours.

                    Keep yer chin up!

                      I'm just a pharmacy student at the moment but I think the changes may be good. Although like mentioned somewhere earlier the thought of you being responsible for someone else's actions is very scary.

                      So far we've been told the changes will mean better use of our skills.

                      but back to the topic of pharmacy support staff, who does this include? Does it include healthcare assistants as well as dispensing technicians?

                        In my opinion, it most certainly does!
                        Healthcare assistants are the first people patients meet when they walk into the Pharmacy, they are the ones who "filter" the calls to the Phcist, who answer the 'phone, they can help select suitable MUR 'victims', etc...
                        They are just as invaluable as dispensing technicians!
