The hot topics
Most of the hours worked by all pharmacists, are worked by community pharmacists, in community pharmacy. How many of these notables above, work full-time NOW in community pharmacies? In other words, are actually IN TOUCH with the public they purport to serve? I would wager, these people between them, work very few hours in the community pharmacies that relate to their communities. No wonder this group of luminaries made an interim recommendation, to up-schedule Codeine, that was so blatantly out of touch with the legitimate needs of the public.
