In this episode of our In Conversation With podcast Pharmacy Magazine editor Richard Thomas talks to Victoria Steele, six months into her role as LloydsPharmacy’s first female superintendent pharmacist, about how the company is looking after the mental health of its pharmacy teams in the wake of the pandemic, the rapid growth of its Echo prescription delivery service and the unacceptable side of social media in a frank and wide-ranging interview.
Good Week Bad Week returns in a new format: the departure of Simon Stevens, dispensing doctors, the mental health of female care providers and contractors’ broken NHS payments system all feature. Plus toxic Twitter and an extract from an exclusive interview with LloydsPharmacy’s superintendent pharmacist, Victoria Steele. The full interview will be released next week. The Talking Pharmacy podcast is sponsored by Aronix from Dr Reddy’s.
The CIG editors get together for a podcast 'Spring Special', where each chooses their favourite story of the year so far. Immunisations (Covid and otherwise), abolition of the tampon tax, Harpreet Chana and mental health, Jackie Lewis and cancer care, and huge congratulations to the profession's newest pharmacists who've been through the mill and come out the other side – all feature. Chapeau!
