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


I think 11:05 is being a bit harsh on pharmacists, and that is from someone not happy with this years change. We have had to work so much harder this year to try to stay static, it is not the most efficient use of NHS resources. We haven't been able to do another tranche of letters out to patients as they become unviable and we are spending too much time getting patients in for a flu jab,when we could have been offering other services. Because of pharmacy competition, we will be ordering a lot less flu vaccine unless we get a better deal to send those unused vaccines back to the suppliers.
