Pharmacy restrictive practice

Comment 10th July 2010

This morning our Alliance/Boots pharmacy was closed because the duty pharmacist was off sick and the replacement one was awaited.

As a result, many shoppers were denied entry, not those only requiring prescribed drugs, but also those wishing to purchase soap, toothppaste or razor blades.

We were informed through a crack in the door by a staff member that it was a legal requirement. This seems to be madness.

Why does this matter?

Surely the pharmacist should  only be required to issue/action drug prescription, not everything that a chemist stocks.
