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


Sticking with the issue of flu jabs. It is one of convenience. Countless patients left my consultation room saying how much simpler the process of getting vaccinated was this year. You can't spend the whole year discouraging patients from coming to see you and pushing them elsewhere and then complain when they do exactly that come flu jab time. Pharmacists see their patients much more often than GP's so I can see the logic.
