    The consultation on clarifying the legal obligations of responsible pharmacists and superintendent pharmacists, which closed earlier this month, prompted some predictable caterwauling and finger pointing on social media.

    Whether the work of the rebalancing board is a stalking horse for remote supervision or a genuine attempt to come up with a regulatory and legislative framework to underpin modern pharmacy practice remains to be seen.

  2. Will the recent NICE guidance, which focuses on how community pharmacies can help maintain and improve people’s physical and mental health, also focus the minds of NHS England and Public Health England? Mike Holden from Pharmacy Complete hopes so

  3. There are so many ways you can save money when you offer a home delivery service, says Aberystwyth pharmacist Gary Jones, developer of the Pro Delivery Manager (PDM) app

  4. FMD“must not disrupt” the medicines supply chain after Brexit – and pharmacies should be fully compensated if the UK departs from the Directive, the Company Chemists' Association has said

  5. The RPS welcomed the news that the NHS will be able to prescribe Avastin for age-related macular degeneration after winning a high court battle with manufacturers of existing treatments 

  6. Seqirus told Pharmacy Magazine that despite “processing challenges” it is on track to meet its delivery schedule and will seek to “identify any opportunities to bring additional doses of Fluad into the UK"

  7. With many contractors experiencing difficulties obtaining the flu vaccine indicated for over-65s, PSNC has confirmed that pharmacists should not resort to using alternative vaccines

    I am refreshed and raring to go after the summer holidays. Apart from the next six months being hellish regarding the comings and goings of staff as they continue their personal journeys of maternity leave, promotion, leavers and new starters, there is plenty to be optimistic about.

    For a start, we apparently have a Secretary of State who wants to invest in pharmacy – at least until his civil servants get their hooks into him. This is something we haven’t had in a very long time. I feel optimistic, as I always have been, that Government and NHS England are running out of time and options for getting a grip on the health service.

  9. New research is overturning some widely held beliefs about the bladder. Could relief finally be in sight for sufferers of urinary incontinence?

  10. As it launched the 2018 Stoptober campaign, the health body said that in 2017, almost 400,000 people in England successfully stopped smoking – the equivalent of 1,069 each day, or one every 81 seconds
