Comments confirm the greed of doctors(I am not against you by the way). You all love money as much as the bext person but very lazy when you pretend it's about 'patient safety'.
One big multiple which I think has been referred to already for other malpractices in the guardian newspaper are perpetrators of the 'repeat Rx scam' whilst paying their employees silly wages. Unfortunately they are too big too big to be touched. Them and other Pharmacy contractors will simply find another way to maintain/boost profits, usually by getting rid of staff and reducing wages for the mugs that escape the cull.
Lots of Pharmacy contractors(as opposed to employees/locums) defraud The NHS this way. It's quite a money spinner and I see it first hand, and have done for years.
Problems are definitely relative. Emergency pharmacy locums sometimes dip below £20 per hour.
You think being a Dr is tough?? Try Community Pharmacy! An abject waste of time. Literally better skipping A pharmacy degree to work in McDonalds. At least a Dr has skill sought after across the globe. Admitting to working as a community pharmacist gets more embarrassing by the day.
I love the arrogance of GPs and contractor pharmacists. Both think they are so intelligent and everyone else is a dunce. But I know hospital doctors refer to GPs as experts in GOOGLE and let's not even start on pharmacists....
