  • MCS and script charges/lloyds training

    Pt had script for 28 atarax 25mg a week or so ago. Pharmacy had supplied 14 and left rest as owing.

    Pt brought in script for Telfast 180 as had told Dr must have something.

    She maintained should not pay NHS charge as had done so already for item we could not supply.

    What is the legal position?, she said should at least have half her money back.

    In the end 'phoned AAH who said cptr showed four packs in stock, wills ee if a couple arrive tomorrow. Also have tried to order Ucerax in case this is in stock.

    New Hungarian pharmacist started today for nine months training prior to taking RPSGB exam. Have to say most impressed by lloyds training material.

    Would like to get a copy of the workbook on the DT.

    Hmmm... Not sure at all about refunding half the charge as only half the qty could be supplied...

      NHS levy is a contribution to the NHS - Nothing to do with paying for medicines - It just so happens that pharmacists get lumbered with collecting this tax. Patient has seen a doctor, receptionist, pharmacy staff etc.

      If eveyone paid £1 for their meds would save a lot of aggro & NHS expense. I have had patients who can't understand the INN names on their repeat so tick the lot knowing that they will get those meds that they actually do want

        But the fee would not stay at £1 it would be increased each year.
