  • Community Pharmacy - The Musical

    Following the interest in "How to solve a problem like Maria", and the success of "Spamalot", how about a musical based on "a day in the life of a community pharmacy"?

    On the way to work : "I Owe I Owe, its off to work we go". (parody of the seven dwarfs in snow white)

    Contacting a hospital prescriber : "They were only playing leapfrog" (from "What a loverly War")

    Filling MDS trays : "The 7 days of Nomad". a song like the twelve days of christmas, based on the drug names.

    Doing Scripts : "Do the prescription shuffle, here the money rustle"; Parody of "Wall street shuffle", by 10cc.

    Customer Complaint : "Complaining in my ears" (based on "It's raining")

    MUR Song : "MUR Operator", Based on Sade's "Smooth Operator".

    Curing Headlice : "I'm gonna wash those lice right out of my hair", South Pacific.

    Looking at the PF34 Report : "Half a sixpence" a lament on the dispensing fee.

    Clarifying instructions : not a song but like the Danny Kaye "Vessel with the pestle contains the brew that is pure" segment.

    Photography Counter : "One day my prints will come"

    Phone call to busy GP : "Hanging on the telephone" (Blondie)

    Collection & Delivery : "The bare necessities of life will come to you".
    Home time : all the staff whistle the great escape theme.

    Imagine the customers...
    "oi you lot stop singing in there and get on with my prescription".

    Patient counselling scene is based on this nonsense....

    Hawkins: I've got it! I've got it! The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right?

    Griselda: Yes, but there's been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace!

    Hawkins: They broke the chalice from the palace?

    Griselda: And replaced it with a flagon.

    Hawkins: A flagon...?

    Griselda: With the figure of a dragon.

    Hawkins: Flagon with a dragon.

    Griselda: Right.

    Hawkins: But did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?

    Griselda: No!!!

    Griselda: The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!

    Hawkins: The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the
    vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.

    Griselda: Just remember that
    47 BC : Julius Cesar : Veni Vidi Vici : I came, I saw I conquered.
    2018 AD : Modern Man : I shopped, I clicked, I collected.
    How times change.

      some of their other stuff is a bit rude - so don't blame me if you're offended by any of it.

        I'd better have a look.
        If I like it I'll have a laugh.
        If I'm offended I'll have to talk to my lawyers!

          This sort of thing helps me cope.
          I nearly wrote "keep me sane" but that status is debatable.
          Thinking of patient counselling based on "vessel with the pestle" always makes me smile. Think about it next time you watch someone counselling a patient or when you do it yourself.

          Another song for the musical would be ...
          "Certificate on the Wall", based on Marlena on the Wall by Suzanne Vega (as song that I think is great). In the musical it would be sung just as frenetically, speeding up with each verse as more prescriptions arrrived and the queue got longer.

              How about "toxic" by Britney Spears when dealing with a request for codeine

              The customer looks at his box of co-codamol and goes
              "I'm addicted to you"
              and the pharmacist goes
              "Dont you know that its toxic?"
              MUR

              Major Underestimation of Resources
