This week's pod has all the regular features: Good Week Bad Week, Any Other Business, plus a Postcard from Dublin and the Talking Pharmacy Rantline opens for business. Also vaccines, testing, early education & training – and who's been splashing out with their RPS Rewards points...
We talk to the UK Black Pharmacists Association about racism, discrimination and inequality in pharmacy in a powerful interview. Also the GPhC in the firing line once more over premises fees hike, thwarted holidays and the Duchess of Cornwall.
Community pharmacist and stand up comedian Peter Kelly talks about laughing with patients, finding inspiration in getting booed off at The Comedy Store after telling one joke, and draws a parallel between the the worlds of comedy and drug discovery. We discuss an “interesting" week for the GPhC, the first school of pharmacy pharmacy technician qualification, hub and spoke business models and deliver a brickbat to the Chancellor.
