Pharmacy flu scheme 'leaves GPs with £4m loss'


Slightly unfair. Pharmacists have been commissioned to do flu jabs and are trying their best to do so, within the constraints of the PGD and our access to records. On the whole I don't think that we are after your business and I was trained to respect the superior knowledge and training of the GP. In reply to the earlier comment. We are trained to diagnose minor conditions and if we weren't there to field these patients then GP's would be even more under the cosh. I also feel that this website churns these allegations out time after time with no evidence whatsoever, with the sole aim of stoking the argument between professions.
