Community Pharmacy at Christmas. Stress all round. Will we make the silly target set by Head Office? How many will come in on xmas eve having run out of tablets and the doctors are shut? ( We used to run a sweep on that) . Phone calls from those who must have a months supply of tablets, having had a months supply last week. Will the wholesalers be out of cough mixture/ flu remedies just as the epidemic reaches a peak. ? Rota on xmas day for the person who forgot to get the baby milk in when he was doing the xmas food shop. Rota on boxing day for indigestion remedies. Can the delivery driver drop off something to the farm,? they can't get out in their tractor due to snow. Get the company helicopter out!!! Pull the plug on the phone.
Someone get me a large coffee and a valium sandwich.
Do I miss it after 40 years? No.
I would plan a nice quiet Christmas, except 18 other members of my family won't let me.
A plea from all those left behind. If your life depends on certain medication, please check you have enough to last until Jan 2nd. If not, sort it out Today. The manufacturers shut down tomorrow until new year.
Everyone else and those who are already organised, have a Happy Christmas.
