Pharmacists to be given power to swap GP prescriptions during shortages from February


Last year, pharmacists called for the power to change GP prescriptions to ‘therapeutically equivalent generics’ when dispensing drugs, as this would allow them to make more money, as they earn more money from generics, compared to branded generics. GP's obviously have always wanted to make less money and their wishes have been listened to and actioned. Hmm why are GP's leaving and newbies not applying? Just cannot understand that!!
