Chair of the BMA’s Scottish GP Committee Dr Andrew Buist says there simply isn’t enough data being gathered to show just how busy GPs are.
I found out today after attempting to collect my prescription from my local pharmacy that I can no longer receive my treatment for endometriosis.
My mental health has been destroyed. I can hardly sleep at night, I keep weighing up the choice of going to work to earn for my family and sustain my self.
The employment status of locums has been a potential tax time-bomb for many years.
Many parts of the NHS in Scotland are restarting work that had to be paused, while keeping their focus on the virus.
I ended up getting one of the last flights out of the country on the Monday before all planes were grounded.
Six months ago, if anyone had suggested to Anna Ruthven that she’d be working in a local pharmacy in Spring 2020 dressed in a visor she’d have laughed.
I’m appalled by the fact that community pharmacy teams don’t appear to have been included in the announcement of a £60,000 death in service benefit.
Our pharmacy is extremely busy normally. It’s a very fast-paced and stressful environment. We never have ‘quiet times’ & often have to cover other branches.
The pandemic community pharmacy delivery service is not worth the paper it’s written on.
