          I agree but does anyone actually prepare specials for the £ 3 fee? Then clean up after?

              You need a formula to start you off and this can be found in the the british pharmacopoeia. If you don't have this reference in your pharmacy a quick google search should give you the information that you need.

                    This is my very last unit to send off, about to do the simulations for the paediatric simple linctus and the diluted sodium bicarb ear drops. The thing I found with the simple linctus is making up the Syrup BP to dilute the simple linctus, so there's that extra step. Worth it though because it's a good one to cover lots of criteria.

                        You need to look up the formula in the British Pharmacopoeia. If your pharmacist doesn't have access to it I would suggest finding somebody who does. I asked an old colleague but if you ring around a few pharmacies I'm sure you'll find one who doesn't mind letting you borrow theirs.

                          for ear drops you have answer in one of the modules book as for linctus the formula for dilution is 75ml sirup and 25ml linctus to make 100ml. Note: my unit was just sent back form the marker-although I covered everything she still didn't accept it as 3 of them were simulation+one real life example of making erythromycin solution.WTF?

                            We always made our own simple syrup in a sauce pan over a gas ring. Useful ingredient for rum punch, cocktails and home made liqueurs.
