Aim RxAppleton Village Pharmacy, Widnes, Cheshire, Widnes WA8 6DZ This branch is very disorganised and many complaints by patients on a weekday and Saturday shift. Some of the staff here are very under trained and not conducive to a steady and effective work flow.
Aim RxSorrel Bank Chemist, M6 7HL, SalfordVery busy but extremely well organised and has brilliant staff who stick to their roles to ensure it is run smoothly
Aim RxAppleton Village, Widnes, Cheshire, Widnes WA8 6DZ Busy branch with a lot of walk-ins. Poorly organised with staff making a lot of errors. A lot of complaints by patients especially with missing prescriptions. Need better staff here to create a more safe and effective working environment.
Aim RxChurch Street Chemist , 99 Church St, Eccles, Manchester M30 0EJThis place has gone downhill very rapidly. A lot of patient complaints especially with blister packs not getting done in time. Staff expect you to check blister packs without the latest prescription. Other dispensed prescriptions are usually fine however there are a lot of problems with the trays. A lot of daily blue prescriptions too.
Needs a better manager to sort the place out and organise things better.
Ali's Pharmacy93 Watney St, Shadwell, London E1 2QE
Alsagar Pharmacy25 Lawton Rd, Alsager, Stoke-on-Trent ST7 2AARun down independent unfortunately, lack of staff and hygiene by the looks of things. Staff were far too stretched, many near miss errors, cd balance discrepancies, rude customers and backbiting environment. Not professional, wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend to fellow colleagues.
Alton Pharmacy68 High St, Alton GU34 1ETSo busy. Had to make up all methadone for the whole week myself and self-check them. the dispensers did'nt. made roughly 20 to 25 who collects weekly on the same day {Tuesday). Patients started coming for methadone straight from 9am. pressure to make it up when you are unfamiliar with store and patients. Also, checked loads of interims, delivery, massive care home, loads of checking non-stop, walk-ins, queries and the error by dispensers on this day was high. Pressure to get all done by manager who wants me to check all next day delivery 20 minutes before closing when I was dealing with walk-ins and MDS. Staff kept saying this is next to do every single sec without a break. no mental break.
I would say negotiate high if you really need to work here or AVOID at all cost unless desperate for cash.
Apple Pharmacy105 Broughton St, Edinburgh EH1 3RZA lovely shop to work in. Well trained staff and usually relatively quiet. Many of the customers are regulars and they have a little library so despite being in the middle of the city there is a community feel. No parking but it handy for buses.
AsdaBletcham Way, Milton Keynes MK1 1QBClean tidy pharmacy
Asda Dunmail Park Shopping Centre, Workington CA14 1NQGood
Asda Marina Way, Hartlepool TS24 0XRAlways have at least one member of staff in or more. Due to the workload for the pharmacist the staff never expect the locum to serve at the till which is nice so we can get on with our jobs as pharmacists.
There is one member of staff who is quite loud and aggressively spoken and swears a lot but not towards the pharmacist, however it does add to the stressometer considerably.
AsdaHarpurhey Shopping Centre, Manchester M9 4DJExtremely rude customers, majority of staff reflect this in the way they handle and speak to customers, low morale, didn’t inform me I would be working with no dispenser in evening for 6 hours of the shift, extremely busy with usual 1 hour wait-time on a walk-in prescription, had no choice but to self-check which I felt extremely uncomfortable with given the business of the place and lack of support
AsdaHowley Park Rd, Morley, Leeds LS27 0BPNo dispensers, dispenser hours are only when manger is on duty
AsdaMalinsgate, Telford TF3 4HZ
AsdaOff Long Hill Rd, Bradford Rd, Huddersfield HD2 2LQUnderstaffed due to inability to retain qualified/experienced staff. I often have to self-check when working new staff members who have just started there and do not know anything regarding OTC sales and dispensing medicines. The manager does not provide an additional experienced staff member while working with the new person. Even when they do it's for a handful of shifts leaving me having to self-check the majority of the time.
AsdaOld Potts Way, Shrewsbury SY3 7ETGood extremely busy
AsdaSturry Rd, Canterbury CT1 1DGGood
AsdaSurtees Rd, Peterlee SR8 5HAStaff are very nice and do not put pressure on you. However, it is a busy pharmacy and if you work without a 2nd pharmacist, it can be overwhelming. Late shifts are usually fine by yourself. Colleagues are competent and are trained on both the counter and the dispensary. Self-checking is almost never necessary. If it gets busy, it is difficult to get a break, but colleagues will support and will increase the waiting times.
AsdaTrinity Trading Estate, Mill Way, Sittingbourne ME10 2PDThe workload wasn't too bad but there's a chance of being left alone with a single member of staff (lucky if it's a dispenser). Pharmacist manager Lima was professional, courteous and easy going. Apparently, another locum has had rates 45-50 during peak summer here. Lol no undercutting please venlocers
AsdaWalney Rd, Barrow-in-Furness LA14 5UGGood
AsdaWestbrook Shopping Centre, Cromwell Ave, Warrington WA5 8UGFeedback from other locums, it depends entirely on the staff and pharmacist who have been in the day before or the morning/afternoon shift. Managers let the work pile up on the morning shifts, locums come in and clear the area in the evening, good luck!

Some of the staff were very good, fantastic in fact. whereas others were totally inept and just passing time leaving the work for the others, there was a noticeable change in their behavior when the manager left (when the cats away and all that)

No defined job roles or the 'lets get things done' mentality, appears the manager/s can't differentiate between their job titles so staff have it easy...or the manager/s just don't want to rock the boat and do whatever it takes?

good luck! it has been a while since my shift..things may have changed!

AsdaWhinbush Way, Darlington DL1 3RBOn a Saturday there's not much to check usually but the CD balance needs doing and whilst checking walk-ins you're expected to serve at the front counter as for a large period of time during the day there is not enough staff. The staff can be a little rude in their tone and try to use you as a spare part sometimes by rudely asking you to help with their jobs. But at the moment they don't have a manager so you can understand they are a bit stressed
AsdaWhitley Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE12 9SJManagement disrespectful and ignorant

BootsBoots West Street, Bridport, Dorset
Boots4 Fern Lea Villas, Middleway, St. Blazey, PAR, Cornwall, PL24 2JGThe dispensing staff weren’t welcoming nor friendly. Not helpful, one of the relief dispensers engaged and was OK.
One of the dispensers was rude and impertinent and had no social skills or tact.
The two ladies who covered the counter were nice enough and I guess that’s why they were put on front counter duty.
Wouldn’t recommend this store. Plenty more nice stores in the area
BootsKingsley Village Shopping Park, Penhale, FRADDON, Cornwall, TR9 6NA This is a retail park. All the colleagues are really nine n friendly. Normally very busy with travel clinic but not now, due to Covid.
Can be very quiet in the evenings so won’t suit everyone. Shift is 11.30 to 8pm, Monday to Friday.
Boots3-5 West St, Bridport DT6 3QJThis branch always seem to be struggling to keep up with the demand of ‘scripts in contrast to the nearby Dorchester branch which has things under control. Some very good staff at 0424 but lacking leadership.
The store manager’s daughter also works at the same store which in my experience is not a good thing, the colleague in question thinks her rank much higher than it actually is. There are more problem stores in this area than good, so probably best avoid this area if you are newly qualified
BootsRiverside Retail Park, Boots, Nottingham NG2 1RUBranch was reasonably ahead even in the current climate, staff were nice and helpful when asked about anything

Boots2 Princeway, Frodsham WA6 6RXBranch is very poorly managed and staffed. There are serious concerns with the operation of this branch, which are at a point which they may be compromising patient safety. SOP’s are not being followed, with a 2 week back log of prescriptions, poor cleanliness, stock is not filled or filtered away, along with delivery scripts. Patient care is not being adequately provided, staffing levels are very poor.

BootsGates Shopping Centre, Mealhouse Ln, Bolton BL1 1DFSunday shift so fairly quiet with boots, all about otc queries more than anything. However upon arrival, greeted by one of the assistant managers whom was very pleasant. But soon realised had no dispenser or qualified pharmacy staff. There was a trainee otc assistant. Kind of ridiculous in my opinion, this was not expressed at the time of booking. Refused to self dispense. Heating was broken and absolutely freezing, pretty sure the temperature did not meet working conditions. Kind of being picky but environmental conditions matter in my opinion for a healthy mindset.
BootsMill Gate Shopping Centre Bury BL9 0QQExtremely busy and under staffed luckily the only dispenser working with me was very efficient and hard working and helped to reduce the pressure and I have experience working for boots otherwise for a locum not used to the boots system it would be too much of a workload and too little staff to deal with demand
BootsQueen's Square, Dolgellau LL40 1ALNice branch.
BootsQueen's Square, Dolgellau LL40 1ALGood branch overall. More staff needed. Manger good
Boots44A High St, Sheffield S9 1ENNice friendly staff and regular pharmacists each time i've worked a double cover shift, dispensary is quite unorganised and gets messy due to small cramped working space. You will be required to serve customers and check waiting prescriptions on the front. You will be mostly left alone the whole day a pharmacist in the dispensary due to 2nd pharmacist being in consultation room doing vaccinations and services al day.
Boots6A, Forster Square Retail Park Park, Forster Ct, Bradford BD1 4AUReally nasty manager who seems to be seething with hatred for Pharmacist. We got into a confrontation after I found out she had seen the CD keys on the bench whilst I went for drink, then picked them up and hid them so I would get worried about where they had ended up!

Really petty.

There's only one member of support staff and even then she's only there for half of the day, so there's a good chance you will be left by yourself to operate the phones, the till and Boots' abysmal new PMR which they call Columbus.

Horrific day, I would not go back.

EDIT:
Icing on the cake: they wouldn't pay me after first losing my invoice and then claiming I had an hours unpaid lunch break.

Boots47-48 Broad St, Reading RG1 2AEBusy branch with two pharmacists on shift. Only one regular pharmacist and she's leaving soon so soon to be no regular - relying on Locums. Team are training but the dispenser training them is very good. Not much guidance and had to use own initiative to track things down.
Boots5 Hollin Park Pde, Leeds LS8 3AS
BootsLocking Castle Medical Centre, Summer Ln, Weston-super-Mare BS24 7AYAwful branch to work in. As an ex Boots Manager this was the worst shift I’ve done in a long time. ACT had delusions of grandeur. Kept asking me to cover counter, then check, then speak to patient. Checking was left for late night pharmacist who received an apology from me. Bottom line branch expects day shift pharmacist to work counter and then late night pharmacist to check as well as work and self dispense.
BootsSwan Surgery, Swan St, Petersfield GU32 3ABI'd recommend this branch to anyone willing to work the slightly unsociable hours. No free parking available.
Boots50-51 Market Pl, Wantage OX12 8AWThe manager was doing nothing all day but sat in the back, watching from the camera. The queues were to the door, as the store doesn't close for lunch, no one bothers to ask you whether you need a break or give you a minute to have one. All the manager does is count how many toilet breaks you take or how many times you have been on your phone. Some of the staff are nice, I checked everything including a billion dossets trays, served the queues as I was asked multiple times, while there was A LOT to still check(priorities?). No-one was bothering to pick up the phone and it ended up being me( it really annoys me). Its just not worth the grief, especially if they are going to complain about little things to the agency.
Boots39 Four Seasons Centre, Mansfield NG18 1SUThey have a lot of care homes and some locums have described being stuck in the care home room for the entire day. It was a Saturday and was unusually quiet, however I was noticing a few dispensing errors even though the pressure wasn't that high.

Boots26 Mercer Row, Louth LN11 9JQDecent branch but be warned off very hectic workload at times mix of EPS & walk-in rxs with odd blue ones. If you can't cope with a very busy, tight & compact dispensary, this one is not for you! Nice staff, really small & narrow dispensary for number if people working in it though. Did everything from check, label, dispense & put stock away as it was constant & you have to put a shift in but as said before nice staff
Boots3 High St, Ripley DE5 3AAPressurised
Boots57 Beveridge Way, Newton Aycliffe DL5 4LDWas double cover in Durham so bit of a trek , nice staff, were a bit understaffed the staff told me but on the day wasn't that bad but I just did normal collections no dosette boxes
Boots63-67 St Peter's Ave, Cleethorpes DN35 8HFStaff pleasant, but extremely behind on workload despite not being a heavy Rx branch. Very short staffed. Busy counter trade, chasing Rxs all day. Ended up helping put stock away & even destroying returned meds at one point as felt sorry for staff. Had to argue for another staff to come from another branch at one point as they wanted just the pcist & one staff to man both rxs & counter one day, which they duly sorted to be fair.
Boots7 Silver St, Coningsby, Lincoln LN4 4SGBusy & disorganised. Short staffed. They were 2 days behind, normal pcist was there as extra to help catch up but did very little & certainly wasn't helping. Kept passing murs, checking & nms despite me being very busy checking EPs rxs. Ended up catching up with 2 days rxs (in a 14k store), doing 7 murs & 2 nms. Staff pleasant enough but wouldn't go back there for any rate as it felt all the work was passed onto locum & being taken advantage of to the max when other staff could have helped too!
Boots7 Silver St, Coningsby, Lincoln LN4 4SGStaff ok but branch very short staffed & workload not managed well at all on multiple shifts there, huge backlog despite their best efforts. Culture of bending backwards way too much for patients means unrealistically short waiting times given , on top of trying to catch up & meet other targets made for a high intensity environment. Doubt I'll go back any time soon!
Boots7 Silver St, Coningsby, Lincoln LN4 4SGBusy busy branch. Lots of mistakes made by dispensers, one in particular more than most! Really short staffed, a dozen meth Rxs, dossets to check, loads of walk ins. Culture of promising patients their Rxs immediately which is really poor practice as causes loads of pressure on pharmacist
Boots8 Market Pl, Long Sutton, Spalding PE12 9JGFairly pleasant staff, I'd say slightly understaffed. Branch not for faint hearted. Extremely busy for what was supposedly a quiet weekend with 50+addicts, nursing homes squeezed between busy walk-in Rxs, OTC queries & trying to catch up with EPS Rxs from previous 2 days!!

One of the most demanding shifts I'd done for a while but enjoyed the challenge. Just be very prepared for hard graft!
BootsFront St, Medical Centre, Wingate TS28 5PZGood branch when staff are there, in my case they were sick and one on holiday so only had one dispenser. OTC staff are there but have nothing to do with dispensary, store manager came to help.

BootsRetford Hospital Primary Care Ctr, North Rd, Retford DN22 7XFExtremely busy branch, about 16k items. Heavy Workload I can manage but miserable & rude staff I can't.

Boots1 Dukes Walk Service Rd, Waterlooville PO7 7HSI worked all day without a dispenser!! Very unsafe
Boots 90-120 Broadway, Catterick DL9 4RFStaff very help in regards to helping you. Separate checking station for checking walkins and repeats which I like. Staff will file scripts for you which saves you the headache so you can focus on checking. Methadone generally already prepared. Usually busy in the morning when they dispense scripts left over/dropped down. Close for 1 hour for lunch.
Boots Cortonwood Shopping Park, Cortonwood Dr, Brampton Bierlow, Barnsley S73 0TBVery quiet pharmacy. Usually only one dispenser on which is more than enough. Last hour you are alone but literally nothing to do except the odd P sale. But if a script came in you will have to self check. Dispensers are helpful when there.
Boots1-3 Vaughan Street, Llanelli, SA15 3USMost of staff really friendly. Manager very very target focused. Pharmacy quiet with walk ins but a lot of checking for care homes (ACT left company so a lot more left to pharmacist to do) and non-stop with supervised consumption patients as drug and alcohol team in same building upstairs. Overall not worth the hassle.

Boots218 Hessle Rd, Hull HU3 3BGDo not work at this branch.Staff make way to many mistakes,even the aggressive ACTs,ridiculously making mistakes,using foul language and aggressive rude tone.Dont like to be told what to do by a pharmacist.Dont like Pharmacist of coloured origin,but constantly praising pharmacists of the same colour.
Boots232 Beverley Rd, Hull HU5 1AHGood well organised branch.Average amount to check.Methadone was done weekly in advance.Couple
of nomads to check.Staff members were friendly and co-operative.
Boots35 Keymer Rd, Hassocks BN6 8AGShort-staffed. Quite behind on workload, single overworked lady dispenser alongside for whole day on a Friday. Very unorganised. Really had to prioritise workload throughout. A locum who was meant to cover apparently had to cancel last minute with ton of people booked in for flu jab. Had to reschedule all appointments. The layout of the dispensary and the shop floor was such that GDPR breach was a constant possibility and risk. Felt sorry for the hardworking lady. Such a shame that the branch has so much potential for growth.
Boots36 Queen St, Cardiff CF10 2RG
Boots49-53 High St, Dundee DD1 1UEIt was a lovely branch, staff were amazing, all very open and friendly but Jesus the workload required 3 pharmacists and when you only got 2 or when staff members were on holiday when it was just crazy crazy. One pharmacists was made to work 17 days in a row because they couldn't book locums in! There would literally be queues right to the door every hour. A never ending conveyor belt of prescriptions.Im not a huge fan of boots simply because there's always an insane workload and a severe lack of staff. The staff all know this but the regional managers either can get someone out or simply don't care. And yet their targets are still stupidly high.
Boots5-7 Kingston Rd, Willerby, Hull HU10 6ADDo not work in the branch,nasty staff make alot of mistakes.Not friendly and frankly do not like pharmacists of a different colour.Had a very bad experience and would never go back regardless of rate.
Boots52 High St, Alton GU34 1ETHad a counter girl and a dispenser/manager on the day who I had previously worked with at a diff branch in Basingstoke. As long as you are assertive and vocal, she'll treat you with respect and help out. It being Sunday, had a lot of otc and minor illness queries with lot of time spent on the till which is not really an issue when there's not much checking to do but when short-staffed, turns out being a hassle so had to prioritise and adjust the wait time accordingly.
Boots87 Lynchford Rd, Farnborough GU14 6ETLack staff. Just the floor manger and counter lady for the such a big shop floor; one left early. ACT lady with a bit of an attitude who kept on ignoring customers/patients. Had to be assertive and tell her to prioritise and remind her her job. Can only wonder how she's with the regular pharmacist mgr. This branch is due to be closed next yr which explains the lack of staff.
BootsCrystal Peaks Retail Park, Drake House Way Sheffield South Yorkshire S20 7JLA shambles branch. Worked an 8-4 shift and arrived in the morning to a list from the regular pharmacist with a list of things for me to do which she hadn't done from the previous day. No methadone made up, discrepancy on both registers which hadn't been sorted despite having a regular pharmacist. Staff are not adequately trained when using the computer system so had to label blue scripts myself as they had no clue. Pharmacy manager was also clueless and relied on myself a locum to help her sort the methadone discrepancy. Its a midnight pharmacy so would definitely avoid a 4-12 shift if the dispensary remains that unorganised and with below competent staff it would be a nightmare i can imagine.
BootsD, Marsham Way, Longwell Green, Bristol BS30 7ES

BootsNeath Water Street, SA11 3EPIntense workload. Had a lot of trays to check to go out with the drivers on the same day including ones with CDs and others without Rxs yet (so were done up as emergency supplies). Not safe with all the other jobs that needed doing. Checking wall is endless and had countless emergency supply requests as so behind. Staff very friendly and work hard running around trying to do all the jobs but simply not enough of them. They sometimes have 2 pharmacists or if not close the pharmacy for 1 hr lunch so make sure to negotiate paid lunch. Overall unsafe branch.

Boots7, Babylon Retail Park, Babylon Hill, Yeovil BA21 5BTThis branch has an MDS business which is the main part of the pharmacy trade. There is virtually no staffs downstairs looking after walk-in customers and hardly any retail staff on the front counter. The pharmacy is open until Midnight via a hatch at the front of the shop and expect to work by yourself as the only other colleague likely in MdS room upstairs. Dispensing standards are poor and dispensary untidy although staff generally nice. Store manager pays little attention to the dispensary downstairs, just doing the usual tick-box audits.
Boots7, Babylon Retail Park, Babylon Hill, Yeovil BA21 5BTThis is a branch with BIG MDS business! The downstairs staff are somewhat overlooked and under resourced. The upstairs staff don’t know much about working downstairs and the downstairs staff seldom go upstairs so as a locum you may well know more about the systems than the dispensers and there is a fair bit of skiving in the evenings when the front doors close but the pharmacy is operating until midnight. The store manageress tends to ignore the locums and concentrated on the DDS performance upstairs and the shop. There is no regular pharmacist at the shop so it feels lacking in direction with the two ACTs often at loggerheads. Working until midnight disrupts your sleep and can’t get to sleep. Site security is patchy and you often walk out into an unlit car park at midnight
Boots72 Poole Rd, Bournemouth BH4 9DZVery friendly staff. Quite quiet. OTC queries are managed by health care staff. Very few walk ins. Methadones are pre-made. 1 hour lunch break.
Boots9 Whiteladies Road Clifton Down Shopping Centre, Bristol BS8 2NNStaff are overworked and unhappy - clearly unsafe dispensing environment due to high workload against poor staff levels. Very competent staff but far too much for them to do well. Relief pharmacist attends so a lunch break can be taken.
Boots960 Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH9 2DGNo staff in the afternoons, phone constantly ringing, nobody serving on counter
BootsClassic Dr, Rowley's Green, Coventry CV6 6ASHad to run the healthcare counter and dispensary on my OWN for first hour of my shift, despite the store manager being a trained dispenser. Was pulled aside during my shift as the manager had been watching me on the cameras and apparently I had been to the toilet 4 times that day and that was too much. She even went on to wait for me outside the toilet and took me down to the shop floor. Also made up lies saying the staff and patients complained about me which is near impossible as the patients would've complained to me, the pharmacist not the manager who is in the office. You are expected to serve all customers, dispensers will not go out, you will are given a till code the moment you step in to the store.
BootsHigh St, Fort William PH33 6EURegular pharmacist doesnt like to sign in as RP, doesnt like to check baskets at all, likes to dispense and label eventhough there are enough dispensers dont know why !! staff can be rude, non pharmacist manager is rude and abrubt, if you try to discuss any issues she says take it up with head office,
Very busy shop could be easier if other pharmacist helped, general chaos in the dispensary not enough room to check I will defo not book anymore shifts
BootsMalvern Retail Park, Roman Way, Malvern WR14 1JQOne of the better boots stores to Locum at. Staff are well mannered and well trained however could do with at least one counter staff as the medicines counter can get busy, often for queries non-pharmacy related.
BootsShrewsbury pride hill sy1 1ddWorkload here is hectic the workload is way more than 27ph i was booked for, i regret i did not know how busy this branch was before accepting. There is a care home attached to the pharmacy and although there was a pharmacist with me i was left to do majority of the work because he had to do the travel clinics .
BootsVentura Park Rd, Tamworth B78 3JDA moderately busy pharmacy. You have a full set of staff up till final hour when you don't and have to self check.
BootsYate Shopping Centre, 21 W Walk, Yate, Bristol BS37 4AXUsually Two pharmacists, pharmacy also has care home services. Find yourself being asked to cover front desk in morning whilst dispensers dispense and put away stock which means when they’re done, full wall to check. Expected to answer phone calls as phone is placed right by checking area. No methadone patients. Medium work load
Boots125 High St, Bath BA1 4DFDuck and move. This pharmacy has gone from busy but manageable to having no permanent staff. Only relief dispensers. Stock and repeat requests not reordered and patients quite rightly angry. Only one relief dispenser (who was very good) for a very busy community pharmacy. Would not recommend working here again unless major improvements are made.

Boots5 Ryemarket, Stourbridge DY8 1HJNo staff at all on the chemist counter, customers shouting at colleagues. Many addicts. Invoice was not put through promptly by management so I got paid late
Boots66-68 Union St, Torquay TQ2 5PSThis branch has many, many methadone and Subutex addicts- 40+, and they come throughout the day. There is not enough room in the CD cabinet for all the bottles, consequently spend a lot of time hunting for doses, on my knees.Addicts get uppity when they don’t get served straight away. Also a lot of medisure to do. Other staff too busy to help you.
Boots66-68 Union St, Torquay TQ2 5PSThis branch seems to survive on Medisure (a non-profitable service of little value soon to be discontinued) and substance misuse supervised service which brings a lot of undesirables into the store. Difficult to see how this shop will make a profit with no visible security in place the addicts probably stealing a lot of stock. Horrible place to work in as the addicts demanding their doses straight away and getting verbal if not given immediately. Difficult to recommend this store to anybody
Boots7, Babylon Retail Park, Babylon Hill, Yeovil BA21 5BTThis retail park pharmacy has a big medisure business upstairs but there is only generally one pharmacist in store at a time.

Boots56 Port St, Stirling FK8 2LJI was left feeling uncomfortable most of the day due to the attitude of the dispenser on shift. She was rude and unpleasant most of the shift. She was particularly rude when I asked her to change dispensing errors and in general was not pleasant to work with and left me feeling uncomfortable at various points throughout the day. The trainee dispenser was pleasant but over all I would not take a shift in this pharmacy again
Boots68 The Village, Haxby, York YO32 2HXHad to argue with the manager once I arrived to secure my paid working break as the stores contracted nhs hours do not state closure at lunch but the manager wanted me to have a 30 minute unpaid break dispite the fact that I was willing to stay on the premises for a working break. Also was challenged on invoicing for full mileage despite explaining It was agreed as part of my booking and showing proof on my emails.

BootsFife Central Retail Pk, Kirkcaldy KY2 6QLMessy, busy & understaffed. Staff that were present on the day I was there were rude and condescending to such an extent that I will avoid booking at this branch from now onwards. The dispensary is grotesquely messy, disorganised and unclean with a small checking area leaving a large margin for error when combining the lack of space and how busy the store itself is.Otherwise, the non-pharmacy staff are generally very pleasant and, being a retail park, there is an abundance of parking and places to eat for lunch (1H) which is a definite PRO.

BootsGeorge St, Aberdeen AB25 1HZGood
BootsOxford Retail Park OX4 6XJThis partially branch was very poorly staffed and the workload was very high. Although I was a locum, I was left alone for the first three hours of the shift as the dispenser arrived at 11am. There was no one at the beginning of the day to show me around and I wasn’t even able to log into the computer. Overall it was a very poor experience and I vowed to never return. Boots as a company, can differ from branch to branch depending on store and area managers.
BootsThe Gerard Centre, Gerard St, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan WN4 9ANvery nice staff and polite and helpful manager. workload very high, always behind, constant checking. pushed to do MURs
BootsThe Gyle, 10, Gyle Ave, Edinburgh EH12 9JR EdinburghAvoid where possible
Boots90 Station Rd, West Wickham BR4 0PUI had a dispenser who was just getting on with the repeat dispensing. I was asked to man both the front counter, dispense and check. The workload was unbelievable. No breathing space. The staff didn't show me around but because I'm used to working for Boots I was able to work things out for myself.
Boots5343, Wadebridge, Cornwall Very busy branch but generally enough colleagues, dispensary could do with being bigger as it gets very full at times.
Boots15 Old Basing Mall, Basingstoke RG21 7LWThe issue here is the dispensers in the DDS room. They clearly have issue with people of colour. They have a regular pharmacist who also has this racist behaviour.
I was in the Tray room when the dispensers had a discussion with the regular pharmacist. This Pharmacist came to me and told me to go downstairs because she wants to take over. I asked why, she said because she has to get work done. I said I'm getting the work done, she said she need it to be done by 12pm which only she can do. I didn't want to cause a scene. They all didn't show me where stuff are in the pharmacy or what next to do. I kept asking for directions and the attitude was the worst I have ever had in my life. I felt so uncomfortable that I wanted to walk away and just leave. But I decided to keep it professional and also had a word with line manager who clearly wasnt helpful.
I would say AVOID this store if you are a person of colour. Staff are horrible. No one will support you. Regular pharmacist has the same attitude. No one will question her. Boots won't do anything either.

Boots1-3 Pool Lane and 37, Pool St, Caernarfon LL55 2ALThis was during the beginning stages of when social distancing was implemented. Customers were not accustomed to the idea and hence they were very inpatient and caused the staff to panic.

The staff really did struggle however there were adequate staffing level to keep a good flow and handle the overall pressure. The store shut for 2 hours mid-day which was great.

Boots47-55, Foregate St, Cheshire, Chester CH1 1NAVery busy branch on Saturday, double to triple cover. One pharmacist provides services all day. Gain some good otc experience here though, not really overworked because it is well staffed but at the same time you can get stretched. A lot of juggling skills required so by this I mean eyes and ears open, not one for the silent, zone out pharmacists. One of the managers told me boots dont pay for parking, only came to know they have a parking but dont tell locums so here I am sharing go hunt it down and save yourself £8.
Boots509 Pensby Rd, Thingwall, Birkenhead, Wirral CH61 7UQCovid-19 stress caused his branch to be very busy. Patients were complaining. However it was first day of social distancing so very new to all staff.
Boots6, Bridge Rd, Prestatyn LL19 9BJThe branch was very busy and didn’t have adequate staff to cover the busy period. The area Prestatyn has had a lot of struggling pharmacies including the local lloyds store.
I don’t like how the store has a new policy o making pharmacist check at the front. This is unsafe and causes unnecessary pressure on pharmacist.
I wouldn’t recommend working at this store. However rates are good but mainly because pharmacist don’t want to work I the branch.
BootsChester Rd, Broughton, Bretton, Chester CH4 0DPI liked this branch. I would say 7/10

BootsYate Shopping Centre, 21 W Walk, Yate, Bristol BS37 4AXStaff very supportive, however expected you to serve whenever a customer turned up. sometimes put me off checking long prescriptions. you also dont get the biggest space to check and at times it can get messy.

Boots 3-5 The Rake, Birkenhead, Wirral CH62 7ADgenerally it's a very organised and therefore quiet store. This is the first time I have found it to be busy, which is probably due to the new manager.

Boots7, Babylon Retail Park, Babylon Hill, Yeovil BA21 5BTThis branch is very poorly managed and there is zero communication between the departments. The store manager takes little interest in the dispensary and barely acknowledges me unless totally unavoidable. There is a blame culture in the store and there is a lot of negative energy in the Medisure dispensary whilst the downstairs dispensary is the Cinderella service. Phone constantly ringing and left unanswered due to uninterested colleagues. Never understood how Medisure was profitable and it isn’t with reduced funding. I guess Rx growth kept shareholders at Boots happy but true profit figures were inflated. The bubble will burst and shops will close with job losses

BootsLocking Castle Medical Centre, Summer Ln, Weston-super-Mare BS24 7AYThis is an edge of town store but there is a doctor’s surgery next door.
Customers can be rough- WSM seems to be a dumping ground for low class and drug users from all the area. Didn’t find the colleagues helpful, the store manager never even spoke to me and the assistant store manager was new to the role and was unhelpful. One trainee dispenser was nice. There are scripts and bags all over the place so you’ll struggle to find things.
The shop doors close at 7 or 8 pm and you serve customers through a hatch. You may well be left totally alone with no dispenser for 4 or 5 hours so you need to be confident with Columbus at CPCS. The retail park has Subway and Costa etc so that’s the only good thing
BootsLocking Castle Medical Centre, Summer Ln, Weston-super-Mare BS24 7AYNobody greeted me on arrival, none of the managers ever spoke to me, neither did the branch pharmacist. The senior dispensers too wrapped up in their own world to give a locum help. No dispenser between store close at 8pm and midnight. Even if you have a dispenser they on other tasks such as taking apart ‘scripts that not collected.
Retrieval is a jumbled mess with all the plastic bags from DSP. FRPS regularly doesn’t work so customers constantly needing emergency supply- just doubles the workload. Typical EOT retail park store, not enough staff evenings. AVOID!
BootsThe Forge Retail Park, 14a, M54, Telford TF3 4AGThere is no staff at the branch and the pharmacists often work alone with no dispenser and self check. Nobody on chemist counter and many customer complaints as ‘scripts not ordered by staff or not prepared.

Boots5 THE SQUARE, HARMANSWATER, BRACKNELL, BERKSHIRE, RG12 9LPThe store is organised and everything is in order but the dispensers are just very rude, with the new CPCS service they don’t understand it takes long.

I would take a shift cause work load is light but also don’t expect to be treated nicely.
Boots9 Strand, Torquay TQ1 2AAThis should be a straightforward branch- no methadone, no needle exchange, no Medisure, but it isn’t.
As services have been stripped away, so have the colleagues so the branch is left vulnerable to issues when there is staff sickness, holidays etc..
If Boots can’t be bothered to properly resource this branch they might as well close it !
BootsWincanton Health Centre, Dyke's Way, Wincanton BA9 9FQThis branch is a busy health centre pharmacy. The doctors next door are oppressive saying we need to do emergency supplies to patients when they mess up. Dispensers generally good the the ACT is a bit moody and upsets a lot of people. Manager nice if a bit ‘matronly’ or starchy and bangs about the place opening and closing the shelves. The area manager is an idiot and not well regarded

Boots50 St Andrew's St, Droitwich WR9 8TJBad
Boots89-90 High St, Lymington SO41 9ANThe main problem was the store manager was extremely rude to me and treated me like I was below her. Looked down at me a lot and left me all alone in the pharmacy to check prescription and serve customers. Store itself was not that busy.Awful company to work for. They only care about commercial targets and speed checking without taking into regard patient safety or the workload and physical capability of the pharmacist on duty and what’s within their remit. Try to challenge you on doing MURs on patients who clearly don’t need them. I feel I as the professional it should be my decision on whether or not it’s clinically appropriate to undertake a medicine use review, not the opinion of a shop assistant or store manager.

BootsHeworth village, York, YO31 1AEOne of the worst Boots pharmacies I have worked in. Avoid like the plague. Soon as I stepped in the pharmacy the rude dispenser mentioned pharmacists have to do everything here (dispense, serve, put stock away and answer phones). Most of my time was spent checking backlog of Rxs, even then they felt it was my job to serve etc. My decisions were being challenged like charging for E/S instead of doing loans. Met with comments like ‘You won’t be working here again’ and you won’t be paid for your right break, even though negotiated prior.

Cohens chemistNorth Ormesby Health Village, 9 Trinity Mews, North Ormesby, Middlesbrough TS3 6ALIt was a long drive on the motorway but fairly straightforward. There were no lights on the A road on the drive back so keep that in mind if traveling a distance to get there. The pharmacy itself was easy to find, there was plenty of free car parking available. The pharmacy was very spacious, good area for pharmacist to check and bag prescriptions. A small kitchen in the back to have lunch and there was a small cafe across from the pharmacy too. The staff were all friendly and very hard working. It was a busy pharmacy with lots of walk ins and deliveries but because the staff were so hands on it was actually a very enjoyable place to work. There were a few methadone patients and the pharmacy had a hatch through which to give the patients their methadone. Liked the layout. Would work there again. Only thing was the drive to get there and go back.
Cohens ChemistNorthgate, Pontefract WF8 1HJThe dispenser was very unfriendly and spoke to me unprofessionally. I have never been spoken to like that before and she kept on interrupting the pharmacist whilst they were checking prescriptions.
Cohens ChemistSt Gabriels Medical Centre, 4 Bishops Rd, Prestwich, Manchester M25 0HTGenerally a pleasant branch. But if you're a fast checker then the ACT will check less and you will be expected to do extra. And pushy for murs and nms.
Cohens ChemistWest End Medical Centre, Conway Rd, Colwyn Bay LL29 7LSHigh footfall, next to surgery. Pleasant staff, competent and professional. Had an ACT in the morning only but needed one in the afternoon really but it is what it is.
Colinton Mains Pharmacy84 Colinton Mains Dr, Edinburgh EH13 9BJExtremely busy but generally well organised.
Colinton Village pharmacy46A Bridge Rd, Colinton, Edinburgh EH13 0LQVery busy shop in an affluent area so customers are demanding. However there are plenty staff including some very experienced and it closes for one hour for lunch. They will offer lowish rates so negotiate!
Cornwells Chemist5 The Parade, Silverdale, Newcastle ST5 6LQ
Cornwells Chemist51-53 Bodmin Ave, Stafford ST17 0EFThe senior dispenser at the branch is a vile bully and everyone who works there is afraid of her. In spite of complaints from staff she is still in role. The company culture is very master versus servant.
Danby pharmacyDanby pharmacy, 27 high street, llanfyllin, SY22 5AAgenerally quiet, friendly staff. its inside convenience store so its also very cold!
Day Lewis1 Denmark St, Darlington DL3 0LPBusy well organised but recently more and more understaffed
Day Lewis1-3 Beattyville Gardens, Ilford IG6 1JNNot very great
Day Lewis31 West St, Congleton CW12 1JPBranch really busy, they've merged with well pharmacy that have closed. Its located within a surgery and have lots of angry and unsatisfied customers so you can imagine the reactions. Extremely busy and understaffed, luckily there was double cover on this occasion and hence why I felt comfortable dispensing however not part of my job role in my opinion. During this transitional period which I think will take some time as it's a mess rates need to be negotiated accordingly. Pleasant staff but need more bodies.
Day Lewis38B Gathurst Ln, Shevington, Wigan WN6 8HWOne of the best branches I've worked at. The two ladies I worked alongside were amazing, a good laugh. I would go back and recommend anybody else to. Double the workload during the pandemic, imagine the branch to be quiet orherwise.
Day LewisDenmark Street Surgery, Denmark Street, Darlington , County Durham, DL3 0PDI guess I did approx 100methadones, self dispensing methadone through computer and automatically recorded, helps a bit. store opens at 7am and methadone patients are already lining up, so if your bang on time you will probably have a crazy first hour and half. No break at all was offered or taken as way too busy
Day LewisGrange Dene, Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge HX7 5LLBusy branch, next to a health centre. The branch was 2 members short. Not the most pleasant encounters with staff. Would ask for a higher rate next time due to the location of branch and workload. Area prone to flooding so be mindful when booking.
Day Lewis11 Molyneux Way, Liverpool L10 2JANice branch to work at. Staff are lovely and helpful.
Day Lewis1 Alpine Court, Park Road, Petersfield , Hampshire, GU32 3FBHad a well trained counter asst and a dispenser for this half day Saturday shift. Well managed branch.
Day Lewis12 Orion parade, Hassocks, BN6 8QAVery good staffing level. Well-trained staffs. Overall a pleasant experience.
Day Lewis1351 London Rd, Norbury, London SW16 4BEA lot of complaints from customers. The dispenser blocked me from dispensing and ES because apparently the manager never does ES. I found that to be out of order and had to put her in her place as I was the RP and it was my decision who gets an ES and who doesn’t. All day the staff were complaining and it was burning my ears. Not a busy Pharmacy, just out of line behaviour.
Day Lewis17 Adelaide road, Andover, SP10 1HFVery busy with a lot of walk-ins (nearby surgery) but really good team in place running a well managed branch. I've worked with them before and wouldn't mind working again. Store shuts for lunch.
Day Lewis4 Grafton Cl, Wellingborough NN8 5WAWas a bit too slow had nothing to do for hours
Day Lewis474 Finchampstead road, RG40 3RGThey run mostly on locum dispensers without a full time regular pharmacist. The lady dispenser who opened the pharmacy was downright unpleasant, unprofessional and borderline rude. The counter staff was ok but still not very pleasant with the patients. Considering the pharmacy sharing the building space with the surgery and the high footfall, they definitely need better-trained staff with some attitude adjustment not just towards locums but also the patients. Most branches I've worked at have been well managed and make their payments without any hassle.
Day Lewis6 Gillett Rd, Poole BH12 5BFPleasant and well-trained staff. Very well managed so there weren't mountains of baskets waiting nor scripts missing or being misfiled. Two staffs quite frequently go out for a smoke but didn't risk the workflow and the overall load. Very pleasant counter lady. I'd be happy to go back and work with them.Pays on time. Has proper trained staffs compared to most other companies.
Day Lewis7 The Parade, London Road, East Grinstead RH19 1QL2 dispensers busy making up blister trays for half-day then replaced by only 1 dispenser for remaining half of the day. Store does a lot of trays for Horsham branch. Insanely tedious and mismanaged branch whose pharmacist manager left because of low staffing and whole day blister trays checking. English lady dispenser in the morning with terrible attitude and borderline unprofessional.
Day LewisNewton Rd, Faversham ME13 8FHIn the same building with the surgery so a lot of walk-ins, mountains of baskets to check and pt consultations. Adequate staff, infact a lot of them in a tiny space. It got very quiet from 8.30 to 10.30 at night.

Day LewisSpringfield Rd, Grimsby DN33 3JFThis is such a busy branch on the days I attended they were one or 2 staff short. it was stressful for me and staff. I the staff put a brave face on it to be commended. Customers deserve better here being a health Centre. The CD s daily collection were entirely left to me thrown in at deep end style.. 'we have nothing to do with the CDs' this is not normal for a DL store.. I assume the manager may have influenced this attitude don't know.
If you want to work on the edge feeling stressed and overworked for just tolerablely adequate pay. You can
Friendly staff once you make an effort and empathise with them.

Day Lewis67 Front St, Acomb, York YO24 3BRVery quiet day. Abit of an anomaly to be honest. Was so quiet, manager sent the other dispenser home. Literally nothing to do in the afternoon.
Day Lewis1 Alpine Court, Park Road, Petersfield , Hampshire, GU32 3FBAppallingly disrespectful staff members who never addressed me by my name and lied about me.They gave feedback to the agency that I was ‘slow at checking’ and didn’t want to do any work...I was on my feet most of the day checking non stop....
Day LewisThe Forge, London Rd, Warrington WA4 6HJSome staff were a bit odd, no introduction. Others were friendlier. A LOT of work, very busy not reflected by number of items on pharma data. Staff say it’s due to being under staffed and people leaving, they feel they have been in demand a lot more recently. The branch is hard to find as sat nav will say you have arrived but you’re outside a block of houses. Have to walk down church alley way to get to the pharmacy. Parking free after 3pm

Farren pharmacy177 Bruntsfield Pl, Edinburgh EH10 4DGThis is a great wee pharmacy, run by a good manager and team. But I had to constantly chase up money that was due me. It took me nearly 5 months to get paid, and this seems normal for this company according to other locums. I'm glad I was only owed 4 days pay, if it was 4 weeks it would have seriously affected my cash flow. The pharmacy is top class, but the behind the scenes people are dire.

Hawtonville pharmacy77 Eton Ave, Newark NG24 4JHInadequately run! High staff turnover, meaning no continuity, lots of problems with missing repeat items leading to unhappy patients. Quite a few meth patients too & baskets left from 1-2 days before to check. Staff nice enough but beware before accepting shift
Hawtonville pharmacy77 Eton Ave, Newark NG24 4JHAll the staff who've been there for years have had enough & left which has made a big difference to the branch. Quite a bit behind on EPS, lots of Rx issues being lost, not ordered on time, etc with patients getting irate at times. Would think hard before covering again!
Imaan 65 Green Arbour Rd, Thurcroft, Rotherham S66 9DDVery good branch to work at. Have to negotiate full mileage and lunch but very nice staffNo issues. Very professional. Payment is long. 60 days
Imaan291 Oldham Rd, Rochdale OL16 5HXStaff were lovely, hard working and competent. Majority of their pts were getting delivered so low footfall during this pandemic. However, I do suspect fraudulent claiming, I have no proof. However, when items were not dispensed on a prescription they were not removed from pts record whilst the script was getting processed. I tried to remove as many as I could whilst my registration was on the line. Trays made up without original containers in basket for checking, no tablet descriptions, out of date stock, few near miss errors. Be careful.

Johns Chemists LTD288 Poulton Road, Fleetwood, FY7 7LAHas potential. The head dispenser is really disrespectful and makes clinical decisions on your behalf. They call the regular manager about medication substitutions rather than asking the RP. When respectfully confronted about this the response was to put the prescription aside for the owner to deal with upon his return. I was more than happy to fix the issue so this response is deeply insulting.
Some other decisions made by staff which should have been made my pharmacist.
I feel this would be a nice branch if I wasn't being micro managed.

However they don't close for lunch and i got phone calls after 15mins on several days from the staff asking me to come back because customers didn't want to wait.

Living Care Pharmacy285 Dewsbury Road, Leeds LS11 5HZVery busy pharmacy. Lots of methadone patients. There is also a lot of delivery and care home trays to be checked. The staff are pleasant and friendly. Area is a bit rough. Was a well organised pharmacy but was just really busy. I was the only pharmacist on. Wasn't able to take a proper break or lunch because it was so busy. Not sure if I'd work there again. Also there isn't any good parking nearby. There are a few shops to get something for lunch but like I said because you're kept busy it's difficult to run out and get anything especially if you're the only pharmacist on.
Living Care PharmacyLiving Care Pharmacy 285 Dewsbury Rd, Leeds LS11 5HZThe Pharmacy is on a busy main road, there is no good area for parking nearby. There are some shops nearby to buy food, drinks. The Pharmacy itself was spacious, enough space to move around and a separate checking area for the Pharmacist and a consultation area for customers. There were two members of staff with me throughout the day. Both were friendly and helpful. The Pharmacy isn't busy with walk ins but it is extremely busy with methadone and deliveries. It was also a long shift and I spent most of the day making up methadone for patients for the next week. I was given half an hour lunch during which I was expected to check prescriptions. There were many people who presented to the Pharmacy to use the needle exchange service and the Minor ailments service. I, personally, am not inclined to work here again as I still have not been paid for the shift I did two months ago now. I would recommend that anyone who does work here negotiate accordingly.
Lloydspharmacy19, West Gate Plaza, Moor St, West Bromwich B70 7ADI knew how to use venloc better than the staff. They made me do tasks which the dispensary staff should have done. I cared more about patient safety and outcomes for example chasing up a patients repeat medication which she had been chasing for over a week than the staff working there did.

LloydspharmacyOutwood Park Medical Centre, Potovens Ln, Wakefield WF1 2PEThere is a carpark belonging to the surgery. The Pharmacy was attached to a surgery and was very busy. It had plenty of walk-ins and deliveries and methadone patients. Staff members were very friendly, helpful and hard working. They were very helpful in answering questions and helping when I was unsure about the protocols Lloyds use in their Pharmacy. The Pharmacy was very small and had a small checking area for the Pharmacist. I would definitely work here again even though it was very busy because the support staff were very good and hardworking.
LloydspharmacyWater lane, Farnham, GU9 9NJWorked on a Sunday in the Lloyds sainsbury's store with no dispenser. It was Christmas weekend. Had to dispense and self check loads of FP10 from urgent care centre plus many walk ins, CD balance, CPCS consultation. The two counter staff were extra helpful and nice to me. I wouldn't have scale through the day without them. They supported me and tried to help every single time.

I have stopped since I came in can’t sit for a minute without being asked to do something. No one talks to each other very hostile environment. DONOT BOOK UNDER 45

LloydspharmacyHigh St, Selsey, Chichester PO20 0QLWorked here on 2 occasions. On a weekday I enjoyed the shift. Dispenser was friendly and helpful and there was also an OTC member of staff. Staffing levels were fine for workload. In the last hour there is only the pharmacist and one OTC staff however store is very quite in the last hour so not really an issue. However, booked a shift again at the same store based on my first experience but for a Saturday instead and there was only myself (the pharmacist) and an OTC member of staff who on this occasion was the store manager. She expected me to dispense, label and check which I said I was not happy to do; her response was ‘well all my other pharmacists do it and that’s how we work on a Saturday’. Did not like her attitude from the start. She also handed me a pile of prescriptions to dispense and check which again, I was not happy to do. Also claimed she did not know how to use the system (ComPass) which I thought was absolutely ridiculous as all managers have to know how to use the pharmacy system. Overall, if you want to work here, take a weekday shift as it’s decent but don’t work weekends here.

Lloydspharmacy1 Station Rd, Kendal LA9 6RY
LloydspharmacyLegh St, Newton-le-Willows WA12 9NFVery rude staff. Didn’t introduce themselves and when they left, didn’t say goodbye. I was on my own in the dispensary for a whole hour at the start. I asked if the colleague at the front was a dispenser. She said ‘yeah but I haven’t dispensed and labelled for years I just work at the front counter’ I asked her to label and dispense a walk-in with several items and a CD on the rx whilst I serve the methadone patients and her reply was ‘no I don’t do that, the regular pharmacist does that herself for the first hour she’s on her own in the dispensary’ so I labelled and dispensed as well as self checked for the first hour and they were huge prescriptions with CDs on them. I also was dealing with blue rx patients too as it busy as soon as I entered the pharmacy. Next door was a medical centre. I didn’t agree with the pharmacist being on their own and the dispenser was making out that’s incompetant of me when I said ‘I don’t usually self check and it’s not safe’ she asked me ‘haven’t you labelled and dispensed before?, do you know know how to do it?’ I very well knew how to do it as I did my pre Reg with Lloyds but she didn’t understand I was trying to say ‘I don’t agree with self checking’ and she automatically thought I’m incompetant. So I told her labelling as dispensing is a dispensers job this shouldn’t be my job as I’m the pharmacist! So I was doing her job for her! Soon more staff members came in throughout the day and singled me out. They didn’t introduce themselves to me and kept putting baskets in front of me when I was already checking waiters. They were having a lot of conversations and laughing amongst themselves whilst the pharmacy had a shop full of patients in constantly and it was just constantly busy. Is it possible if you can take my feedback for preferred locums agency off and I changed my mind about them. I rated them, I think 7 last time? But I was unaware of how bad they were as I was manipulated by Ahmed a lot and he kept making me think they’re really good rates during summer when he kept getting me £23-25 during summer.i didn’t realise how bad they were until later. Coz I was still learning and I was a newly qualified in 2018 December. I recently quit them over a month ago but ahmed still kept booking me without my permission during summer and blackmailed me so many times ‘if you don’t turn up to the shifts I’ve booked you on, I will report you to gphc for the closure of pharmacies and I will also make sure my mate Liam (rota coordinator at Lloyds pharmacy) won’t book any shifts off you and he’ll have blocked you’ so since then Liam has blocked my venloc account and I haven’t still been paid from my shifts that I’ve completed with Lloyds. I tried to get it re-opened by joining new directions agency and so when they rang Liam to open my account so I can be a new directions locum, Liam denied them. I had left the preferred locum agency ages ago and I told Liam several times through email as well that I have no contact with them anymore either but Liam kept sucking up to ahmed and kept saying ‘it’s between you and preferred. I can’t re-open unless you have sorted it out with him’ when there was nothing to sort out as I had left them. Ahmed’s and Liam’s unprofessional relationship has affected me as there’s no reason for me to be blocked from Lloyds but it’s all Ahmed’s doing! This is my up to date feedback with preferred locums can you please delete the other one and replace it with this? As I was being too nice before with the feedback on them. Thank you

Lloydspharmacy16 Tong Rd, Leeds LS12 1HXI worked from 3pm till 11pm and I found that it was a decent shift. Only one dispenser however so when she left I was by myself for an hour, self checking walk ins which I was assured doesn’t happen in this branch. Apart from that, the workload was fine and you can pace it nicely. The staff are all very friendly
Lloydspharmacy195-197 Butcher Hill, Leeds LS16 5BQNever going backBad
Lloydspharmacy386 Linthorpe Road, MIDDLESBROUGH, Cleveland, TS5 6HAVery busy branch, it does 25k items. It shows 16k on pharmdata. I checked and hand out every single prescription throughout day. I took 20 min break and staff bring prescriptions to check during my break as well. That i clearly refused as i need some mental break because store was very busy. Minimum 10 people at anytime in pharmacy waiting for medicines. Staff dont listion to pharmacist instructions and behave bossy towards locum. I bear all this ill behaviour just because of customers who were listening to our conversations. I kept requesting staff to hand out rx but they didnot.
Lloydspharmacy518 Hagley Rd W, Birmingham, Oldbury B68 0BZTerrible in terms of selfchecking. Busy branch. Lots to check already on top of reds which you self dispense and check. No dispenser but two MCAs who didn't seem as if they even wanted to learn how to dispense.

Lloydspharmacy(S4_6) Wolverton (PAS) 509. Lloyds Pharmacy, 15-17 The Square, Wolverton, Milton Keynes MK12 5DGWorked here during covid 19. Probably worst shift in my 5 years as a Pharmacist. Please note this review reflect only one shift done here during covid19 and hopefully is not a representation of what the store is like outside a pandemic. So where to begin. Parking, there is space to park behind the store round the corner so parking is not an issue. There is street parking in front of store that is free for ONE HOURS and not busy first thing so if coming first time can park in front of store and then once staff give directions can move car to behind store.

After parking I enter the pharmacy where the counter assistant tell me it is only me in the dispensary and her on the counter this is a weekday during the start of covid 19 lock down where people where panic ordering their prescription. It is 9am and already a line of people is forming on the street. Reason being 4 staff including manager have gone of sick or self isolated, but no extra cover has been arranged. Call area manager to ask for more staff thankfully 30 minutes later another locums comes to the store. 2 pharmacist and one dispenser we get through the day but the pharmacy was in a terrible state. Looked like order had not been put away last few days and was just being emptied into totes so to save space. Prescriptions in baskets everywhere. Dosette trays need doing that no one knows anyting about. It was so buy we could not even answer the phone. The delivery driver came asking for his weekly dosette trays no one knows anything about them, had to call the sick manager who talked me through who needed making up. There are less then 10 methadone patients and general patient where understanding of the situation. Another thing I would recommend is you are familiar with how to use eps tracker and summary care records as the surgery were sending a lot of Rx to spine and patient coming in for prescriptions with no token and we have no NHS number for them so have to use SCR and EPS tracker to find rx and then download it from spine as not sent directly to the branch.

Overall a horrible day, my main issue is not with the staff going of sick/self isolating but management not sorting appropriate staff or extra locums to help cover and it was only until I asked area manager that they sorted another locum thankfully. They where originally at another store. As of covid 19 period they need to open for one day on a Sunday when not normally opened get one regular dispenser and 2 locums to just catch up and tidy the place as it is in a horrible state.

DURING COVID 19 I would not recommend booking her unless you are sure there is adequate staffing and that they have caught up on workload. During normal times when there is a full team it probably would be a decent place to work but currently I advise extreme caution.

LloydspharmacySainsbury's, Middlewich Rd, Nantwich CW5 6PHBranch is a fairly accurate view of what the company resembles. Too much workload with very little support. The few staff which were there are mostly incompetent. Regional manager ignores help we ask for and is more focused on cutting costs and making money
Lloydspharmacy3-5 Granville St, Runcorn WA7 1NEThis was during the beginning stages of when social distancing was implemented. Customers were not accustomed to the idea and hence they were very inpatient and caused the staff to panic. The surgery’s were sending loads of prescription to the pharmacy including post dates scrips Lasting till May. The staff really did struggle however there were adequate staffing level to keep a good flow and handle the overall pressure. The store shut for 2 hours mid-day which was great.
LloydspharmacyHunterfield Road, GorebridgeVery busy but good staff. The regular manager is approachable and helpful.
Lloydspharmacy 263 Alderman Rd, Glasgow G13 3AYThis branch, I kid you not, in no uncertain terms, a suicide mission. Not only was it an absolute hellhole the moment I walked in. One cant even begin where to start with this place. Messy, dangerous, lacking organisation, wafer thin staff, rude staff on some occasions. The kind of shop which could potentially be closed should there be an unannounced inspection. you got trays lying around unchecked, get asked to check trays with no prescriptions
Lloydspharmacy 37 High St, Annan DG12 6AD
Lloydspharmacy Unit 22 Teanlowe Centre, Poulton-Le-Fylde, Lancashire, FY6 7DFVery busy pharmacy and could do with extra staff. The manager and staff were great however and i would go back again but not for lower than 30ph
Lloydspharmacy1-5 Westgate, Bridlington YO16 4QFUnderstaffed and Non trained staff. Incompetent manager. Pharmacist has to do everything including labelling most of the days. Pharmacist doesn’t even get lunch break. bullied, Racist manager, treats pharmacist as a crap. She says she can sack anyone in the region with her contacts.
Lloydspharmacy10 King St, Hereford HR4 9BWNot many walk ins. About 20ish patients on methadones which you have to make up yourself.
Lloydspharmacy101-103 High St, Prestatyn LL19 9APNo staff at all for the work they do to the extent the manager decided to close the shop for an hour due to safety reasons! They have been short staffed for 4 weeks and no sign of any more staff
Lloydspharmacy105 Hunterfield Rd, Gorebridge EH23 4TSVery busy branch but dispensary staff are excellent. They know what is going on and are well organised.
Lloydspharmacy115 Corstorphine Rd, Edinburgh EH12 5PZI've been here a few times and it's an utter liability. I walked away thinking 'I hope no one dies'. It's a desperate pharmacy.
Lloydspharmacy115 Glover St, Perth PH2 0JFI was at this branch six months previously and my goodness what a difference. Everything was tidy, the staff where happy and the whole branch was organised. It's amazing what a small change of bussines plan can do.
Lloydspharmacy12-13 Mid Kent shopping centre, ME16 0PUWell-staffed but a bit mis-managed since the pharmacist manager left a month or 2 ago. A couple of days behind on their dispensing.
Lloydspharmacy121 Chester Rd, Birmingham B74 2HEmanager gives you pressure on MUR and NMS, store is a bit behind so I offered to do trays and dispense and label for them. Staff are friendly to work with
Lloydspharmacy123 Knaresborough Rd, Harrogate HG2 7LYGenerally a good branch, but staff complained about the branch manager a lot. They said the regular pharmacist isnt the manager and spends all day just checking. They didn't understand the wider roles in pharmacy, hence didn't know anything aside from their own respective roles. Whenever someone came in with a problem, kept referring to NHS 111 even though it could be easily dealt with in store. Both staff were new to branch.

Lloydspharmacy150 Victoria Rd, Darlington DL1 5JGLovely staff, very steady workload, nice branch to work in
Lloydspharmacy150 Victoria Rd, Darlington DL1 5JGWith some staff having left the store, environment there is well toxic. No one wants to take responsibility for anything while shifting the blame on to others.
Loads of angry patients calling and literally abusing for missed items, failed deliveries, undispensed trays, etc.
Lloydspharmacy158A Cromwell Rd, Kensington, London SW7 4EJThe acting manager ( the manager was on maternity leave)at the time acted extremely unprofessional! She had booked my shift in advance of one month, when I turned up for my shift, after about 15 min another locum turned up. We decided between us for me to stay as I was there before and the locum needed to attend to some family matters. The next morning I had a call from the acting manager literally shouting at me on the phone for being careless about my shift allocation. I sent her the email notification which clearly showed that the shift was indeed my shift, but to my Asti astonishment she not only made any apologies but made sure I never work for that branch. On another occasion the shift that was clearly booked by me was given to another locum friend of her only two days before the shift and mine was simply cancelled! Similar incident of favouritism happened again in the lloyds branch of Sainsburys in Surry Basin in Kingston. I arrived 10 min early to my shift and the moment I arrived the member of staff told me that he was expecting another locum. I checked the my Rota and the email confirmation and once again I realised that the manager of the branch had decided to give the shift that was booked by me weeks in advance by the area Rota manager and given to a friend locum via a phone call, rather than through Venloc. I did inform the Rota coordinator who was shocked and apologised sincerely and said that he will make sure that I get paid for the shift ! One year is now gone and no payment is made.

Lloydspharmacy2 Bogwood Court, Mayfield.The way installments are "organised" is very inefficient and the dirtiness of the folder they're in made me feel a bit sick. Apart from that a good shift.
Lloydspharmacy2 Bogwood Rd, Mayfield, Dalkeith EH22 5DGVery disorganised. Some staff seem to lack basic knowledge. Quite a lot of methadone but no methameasure.

Lloydspharmacy239 Doncaster Rd, Rotherham S65 2DEvery good and loveable staff
Lloydspharmacy24 Market Pl, Malton YO17 7LXThe staff in general didn't treat me well, sometimes they blanked me when I talked to them or asked for something such as an extra bag label, or for a label to be changed. I had four Mondays in a row booked at this place, after the first shift I dreaded each of my next shifts and it caused me great mental distress.
I had previously worked there about two months before and it was fine, but when I came back I was accused of making a dispensing error on that previous shift, something I wasn't told about by Lloyds or the agency I booked with. When I asked to see proof the manager frantically searching for the box but couldn't find it.
Lloyds branches are hit and miss.

Lloydspharmacy3 Irwell St, Bacup OL13 0ADBranch is in a much better place now than 6 months ago. The manager is an ex-cluster manager, lovely to work with. It's a lot more organised and less chaotic. However, staff require further training as they're passing the workload on which they should be able to handle themselves. Branch remained closed until 1pm that day.
Lloydspharmacy3-5 Granville St, Runcorn WA7 1NE
Lloydspharmacy32-34 High St, Bonnyrigg EH19 2AAWell organised branch. The dispenser/manager is quite demanding but extremely efficient. My only concern is that I was pressured to check prescriptions during my break.
Lloydspharmacy338 Main St, Stenhousemuir, Larbert FK5 3JR
Lloydspharmacy34 John St, Penicuik EH26 8ABRecently relocated branch but seems to have taken a massive step backwards. Poor staffing levels have been hit by 2 further resignations and a failed GPHC inspection(5 minutes in I soon realised why!). Place needs staff and leadership urgently before a serious error arises as patient safety is already in jeoprady.
Lloydspharmacy35 Main St, Gorebridge EH23 4BX
Lloydspharmacy355 Harrogate Rd, Moortown, Leeds LS17 6PZIt’s a very busy branch with around 500 items a day. Only one dispenser left with me in the afternoon so it was manic, especially with walk ins and electronics. Didn’t help that some customers were extremely rude and entitled. Not all staff members were friendly.

Lloydspharmacy5052 Chester, Sainsbury’s, Caldy Valley Rd, Great Boughton, Chester, CH3 5QJThis is very busy pharmacy with a lot of walk ins. There has been a serious staffing issue with no sense of regularity.
I arrived in the morning to find a lengthy queue and three days work of Rx not yet dispensed. The rest of the day was about playing catch-up.
There is no real leadership as a ‘supervisor’ and a technician have differing processes which can create a problem as neither wants to give way to the other.
Rxs seems to go missing and some bags are not shelved correctly so customers have to wait longer than they should.
Staff are friendly but are visibly suffering from the hectic nature of the shop, which is often cluttered and distracting. The staff are aware of the problem and were observed passing their grievances on to a manager.
At the moment this is a messy store with a lot of problem solving.
Lloydspharmacy518 Hagley Rd W, Birmingham, Oldbury B68 0BZNo dispenser all day

Lloydspharmacy56 Cowgate, Kirkintilloch, Glasgow G66 1HNReally good Saturday staff. Felt a bit much is left for them but nothing dangerously so.
Lloydspharmacy66 Middlewich Rd, Northwich CW9 7DABusy at times and 10/15 blue Rxs to deal with and dispense on the day too. But not too much work load can be easily managed.
Lloydspharmacy6612 Talbot Rd, 110 Talbot Rd, Blackpool, FY1 1DABusy pharmacy split between care homes upstairs and regular pharmacy downstairs. In the last year the regular staff have all apparently left due to some work-related grievances and the shop is now staffed with locums and staff from other shops. This can make the dispensing process difficult as there is no regularity.
This is compounded by the fact that there are ~100+ methadone patients daily. Although a Methameasure helps greatly, this amount of users is unwieldy and can lead to mistakes.
There may occasionally be another pharmacist that will work either the upstairs or downstairs.
Unless the reliance on locums and relief staff isn’t sorted, this place will remain hectic.
Lloydspharmacy6869 Old Swan, 23-25 St Olswalds Street, Liverpool, L13 5SAWell-staffed and who were friendly and helpful. Spent a short time upstairs checking care homes but mostly downstairs. Not too busy in terms of workload and walk ins are moderate.
Lloydspharmacy7 Argyle St, Heywood OL10 3RYMake sure you don't cross paths with the regular pharmacist irim. She loves to talk down to you and make you feel worthless and show authority. She's the sole reason for me rating the branch less and her attitudes are bullying in nature.

Lloydspharmacy7 The Parade, Purton, Swindon SN5 4BXAvoid. Once a great store, fallen to bits as no permanent staff. Avoid at any rate, not worth the stress.
Lloydspharmacy7 Worthing Rd, Horsham RH12 1SQLovely staff, lovely manager. Cristina the regular pharmacist is horrible and untrustworthy. The tiny busiest pharmacy you will find. They do 8,000 items a month in a very small space. Extremely cold too.
Lloydspharmacy8 Blandford Pl, Seaham SR7 7ELQuite a lot of pressure to do MURs (because of the little walk-in, the most I ve ever done were 5 in a day)

The manager (who s not a pharmacist) often gets involved in dealing with professional/ clinical queries and insists that I should do it his way - this can make me quite pressurised, stressed and I find it difficult to gather my thoughts.

The pharmacy has little walk-ins, very few OTC sales, about ~10 methadone/ buprenorphine a day, but has nursing homes and very many trays.

The manager is also an ACT.
Most days are all right, Fridays tend to be busier.
Lloydspharmacy8-14 Dubbs Rd, Port Glasgow PA14 5UAThe branch is pretty busy, can sometimes but understaffed.
Alot of addicts so make sure you negotiate a good hourly rate above average because the branch is a headache
Lloydspharmacy85-87 Willoughby Rd, Scunthorpe DN17 2DJReally busy on a Saturday shift. Short staffed as usual. Capable staff though but absolute tons of checking & stuff to do from meth, rxs, MDS, etc. Work relentless for one pharmacist so not for the faint hearted! Staff ok though one (main dispenser/supervisor I think) was a little bossy in trying to get most out of locum pharmacist but not rude in doing it. Would recommend only if you can manage very heavy workload & get a very good rate

Feedback about the regular pharmacist from the staff suggests she is lazy and doesn’t check was it urgent.

LloydspharmacyBelmarket Site West, Kinmel St, Rhyl LL18 1DASome staff are very nice other's aren't so friendly. There can be a bad atmosphere / vibe which doesn't help with the huge workload, where you're expected to clear everything (regular scripts which are piled up at the back and waiters) despite it being your registration on the line. Wouldn't go back for any less than £500 a day. Not worth the stress and hassle and terrible work environment. Processes are bad and environment is also unpleasant due to some people. You're also expected to hand out every waiting prescription which is poor in a pharmacy which does so many items. Needs more staff and the technician should be checking some of the workload rather than processing scripts.
LloydspharmacyCaen St, Braunton EX33 1AAReally good team and manager but its a shame the headoffice doesn't see how stressed the team is. Real let down when you see how hard they work to support the branch.
LloydspharmacyCaroline Square, 93 High St, Skipton BD23 1DADecent branch. Manager is relatively new and sometimes is evident her knowledge has gaps. Not what you expect from a manager. She is quite target driven and will want you to do as many MURs as possible. Had to refuse some as I was busy and some weren’t even MUR eligible

LloydspharmacyChapel Lane, Wellington, Telford TF1 1SSA mix of staff. Generally unhelpful. I was basically dispensing methadone in this branch, everything seems disorganised , meds on the sink same as food, invoices and pharmacy waste. You need to be able to cope with disorganisation to work here . The rate was not commisurate as well.
LloydspharmacyCrystal Peaks Shopping Mall & Retail Park, Sheffield, S20 7PJThe branch is really busy. They have two ACTs. The manager is one of the ACTs. I was not greeted when I arrived in branch and spent 5 minutes finding someone to speak to. Eventually the manager appeared and was surprised their regular relief pharmacist wasnt in. She told me where I could put my jacket etc and then stood me at the checking bench for the day. She then disappeared to check Venloc because she didn't believe she got the rota wrong. She eventually asked me my name, and unable to say it, proceeded to call me a range of different names. I did tell her she didn't need to know my name, but it seemed, she wanted to call me all manner of strange names. I gathered (after talking to staff) that the branch has another level upstairs which is for dossettes and the ACTs deal with these. The manager asked if I was happy for ACTs to check and I said no. She was respectful of this (as far as I know) but later I heard her complaining to the regional manager and the locum coordinator about this. She also told colleagues that I wasn't letting her check and thats why things were slower. She seemed nice in the beginning, but became passive aggressive through the course of the shift. If I was booked there again, I would challenge her, but given the shift was only one day, I didn't think it would be worth it. The dispensary is small, and poorly run. I was told by the manager (loudly, across the dispensary) that I was messy -despite organising my work space with baskets for splits and prescriptions. When I told her the dispensary is badly run, she just laughed and told me to put the splits away (which I didn't do). I would advise newly qualified pharmacists to stay away from this branch, and only pharmacists who are assertive and able to challenge poor behaviour to work here.

LloydspharmacyGreenway Centre & Cafe, Doncaster Rd, Southmead, Bristol BS10 5PYDispenser/manager has an attitude the minute I walked in. Did not greet me even after me making an effort. Awkward working there.Workload is busy however manageable. Trained staff there. Organised and clean pharmacy. There was large notice saying pharmacist can not use phone. Having said that it's hard to get signal anyway. Wouldnt be my 1st choice going there again.
LloydspharmacyGresford Medical Centre, Pilch Ln, Huyton, Liverpool L14 6TTQuite unprofessional staff. But not enough staff for the high workload.
Alot of checking and you would be expected to check blister packs on the day for deliveries and walk-ins with zero notice. Hence customers/drivers waiting for blisters whilst you check. High level of errors and staff thought that spiolto respimat was just a foreign brand of spiriva.
Unbelievable really.
Be prepared to wear your sketchers because you won't be sitting around in this branch.

LloydspharmacyLower Hillmorton Rd, Rugby CV21 3AQWas 2 full time staff short. Spent day clearing work from previous days.
LloydspharmacyMarch, 26a Elwyn Road, PE15 9BFThis branch is extremely busy and in need of another pharmacist, the workload is inhumane, there are around 6 dispensers who dispense rapidly as their manager has told them they will get cake if they dispense a certain amount that day, this leads to clutter and mess and no where to stand in the pharmacy as there are just baskets piled up waiting for a check. There is all this checking alongside all the non-stop walk ins from the surgery. Not to mention most prescriptions (FRPS) are not ready because they are waiting for a check. They are all piled up which wastes more time as the dispensers spend ages trying to find the correct basket through all the mess which then leads to angry patients.
LloydspharmacyMarfleet Health Centre, Preston Rd, Hull HU9 5HHAn organized but very busy branch. There should be more staff and double cover needed at times
LloydspharmacyMiddlewich Rd, Nantwich CW5 6PHGood branch but staff can be lazy and inefficient. Higher workload for evening pharmacist.
LloydspharmacyMontpelier, Bath Buildings, Bristol BS6 5PT
LloydspharmacyNew Health Centre, Mably Way Grove, Wantage OX12 9BNOverall staff didnt respect locums didnt really introduce or show locums around, bad working practices by supervisor who ignored my suggestions on the day 'she explained she has been a manager for over 10 years what ever i say goes' really heavy workload negative comments left on wall i.e locums please put splits away dispensars have enough to do. Branch doesnt instill me with confidence errors made by dispensars and pharmacists alike. In the first hour a error was bought back by the patient from a previous shift. Seems like the regular pharmacist lets the non pharmacist manager take the lead on important decisions which comprimise patient safety.
LloydspharmacyPark Farm Rd, Folkestone CT19 5GA

LloydspharmacyRuncorn Old Town (PAS) Unit 5-6, Granville StThis branch is full of new staff who are "still training" so you are working alongside plenty of staff who know nothing apart from taking in prescriptions and shop floor sales which is frustrating. Make sure you know how to use compass as they don't know how to label either, you are pretty much left to do everything yourself. Manager will give you a list of things to do but theres no time to finish them as you are busy dealing with everything else staff can't do including walk-ins, finding prescriptions.
LloydspharmacySainsbury’s Penrith, 1 Common Garden Square, Penrith, CA11 7FGKNot brilliant. Too pushy. Feel like breaking ethical decisions/ legal regulations in order to achieve commercial targets
LloydspharmacySainsburys, 111 Winterstoke Rd, Bristol BS3 2NSAverage attitude
LloydspharmacySainsburys, Haycocks Rd, Haverhill CB9 7YLDecent store. It felt like the regular staff didn’t want to do much considering they had a back log.
LloydspharmacySilksworth Ln, Sunderland SR3 1PDThere are no counter assistants (Everybody is trained to dispense). The counter is busy and it can tough for dispensers and myself to go backwards and forwards between counter and dispensary. There are quite a few "I want to speak to a pharmacist" queries. Item wise is busy as well.
However, the fact that the pharmacy is opened 8am - 9pm makes it easier managing the workload.
Colleagues are very helpful; they even offer to supervise methadone and ring surgery for queries if I m too busy.
In terms of the break, it can be difficult to take as the counter almost never gets quiet. So I just need to increase the waiting time.
LloydspharmacyStraiton View, Straiton, Loanhead EH20 9PWMake sure you know who you are working with. Most of the staff are great but I have been left to open up with someone who didn't know any passwords or how to operate computers, promised patients emergency supplies without checking with me, failed to hand out necessary pain medication despite clear instructions and threw away some CD Rx's!!
LloydspharmacyUnit 1, Sainsburys Centre, James Rd, Liverpool L25 5QAReally good branch with good staff.
Somewhat disorganised but walk-in wait times are realistic and no pressure to check within a certain timeframe.
Quite a laid back team.

LloydspharmacyWhitwick Rd, Coalville LE67 3FALloyds as a company are good to work for. I haven’t had staffing issues often when working at Lloyds. There is pressure to complete MURs but not in other areas such as checking/other pharmacist duties.
Lloydspharmacy125 Main St, Newtongrange, Dalkeith EH22 4PFThis used to be a great little branch but the manager and dispenser have left and not yet been replaced. They are short staffed and the staff who are there are not well trained. There is a lot of confusion, nobody seems to know what is going on and customers are frustrated and rude. I will be avoiding this branch until they are properly staffed and managed.
LloydsPharmacyWoodland Ave, Goole DN14 6RUthere were six dispensers one ACT versus One locum pharmacist- It could be argued that this is not a healthy ratio? Taking this into consideration, why did the staff expect me to personally hand out a lot of walk in prescriptions and also a lot of the time be what I call an "apprentice doorman" having to personally shepherd patients into the shop and let them out in turn -I did not understand how 'standing behind the door' to let people in- ("The idea is that they don't have to touch the door handle you see")-helped my social distancing? But in all a very hard working shop.
Lloydspharmacy34 Nostell Place West, Bessacarr, Doncaster DN4 7JAExcellent happy and hard working staff. Highly recommend them. Good well run shop albeit slightly understaffed.
Lloydspharmacy136 London Rd, Aston Clinton, Aylesbury HP22 5LB.Parking: Is attached to Aston Clinton Surgery so have a large enough car park no issues parking. Staff where a pleasure to work with and had good sense of humor. I felt there was enough staff and with adequate experience to run the dispensary but also understand their boundaries and will defer to the pharmacist when needed. As it is a pharmacy attached to a surgery expect a constant stream of dispensing but you will have the staff to make it pleasurable. I worked here during the last week of March and Covid 19 despite this the staff worked professionally and we got through the day. Customers where also understanding.

Would come here again had a busy but good day.
Lloydspharmacy11 Wharf Rd, Ash Vale, Aldershot GU12 5AZExtremely unfriendly branch. Dispensers were very rude and completely disregarded me for the whole day with not one word being said to me. I even tried to make conversation with them and they were just very blunt. One dispenser in particular was extremely rude and had major attitude problems. She was walking around banging everything on the tables and questioning everything I did

LloydspharmacyPenketh /6103 Honiton Way WA5 2EYBusy branch, rota coordinator seems to have no respect for locums and doesn't like it if you look like your not working for a second ie. Waiting for a script to finish being dispensed so you can check it. Constantly pressuring you to do OSD even when you are dealing with more urgent tasks ie. Checking scripts for patients waiting in shop.
Lloydspharmacy31 Victoria Rd, Dartmouth TQ6 9RTSuch a great team to work with. The customers aren't too rude in this area so the staff have a good relationship with most of them. The workload is constant but with little pressure. Don't get interrupted on your lunch break.

LloydspharmacyAdj To Cottons Medical Ctr, Meadow Lane, Raunds, Northamptonshire, NN9 6UAParking, is not a problem the branch is attached to Cottons surgery and has a large car park.

Pharmacy is busy and workload is constant as you would expect with a branch attached to a surgery but despite this, there was what felt like an army of dispenser and support staff and all where very competent to work efficiently without too much direction from me. All the staff where friendly, welcoming and helpful whenever I asked for anything. The manager/suppervisor and regular pharmacist where also working, which helped. The manager was a pleasure to work with, she seemed very organised and regiment which is what you need when managing a busy branch. There where 2 pharmacist including myself and the other pharmacist was the regular and was also lovely, they where dealing with a lot of the regular queries so maybe that is why it felt less pressurizing on me although I was RP the regular pharmacist did defer to me when a decision needed to be made which was reassuring to me. I worked here during March when covid 19 was happening and despite how busy things where the staff made me feel safe working at their branch.

I would work here again, even though busy the staff are good.

Lloydspharmacy 136 London Rd, Aston Clinton, Aylesbury HP22 5LBParking plenty of free parking as on a retail park. Staff where friendly, and welcoming mixed bag in terms of training and competence though found myself using the PMR pharmacy manager system a few times. Worked here once before covid 19 and had enough staff shift went smoothly and pleasant. Worked another shift during covid19 which triggered this feedback. Main issue was staff shortage, was only me and another dispenser only from 1:30 till 8pm which made the shift very stressful. Also a lot of queries and stock was being ordered but not coming in. I think without covid19 this is a very nice branch to work at and would recommend but during current crisis I would be careful due to staff shortages.
Lloydspharmacy Huntingdon In Sainsburys 5124 St Germain Walk, Huntingdon PE29 3FGParking caution!: Lots of parking space as in a retail park but you have to pay for parking via the ticket machine. Make sure you negotiate parking paid with coordinator or the store manager who kingly offered to pay my parking fee at end of they day. If I remember correctly it is £1.50 per 2 hours, staff kindly offered to take my money every 2 hours to put ticket in my car. Excellent pharmacist manager who I did not meet but spoke to over the phone. Worked here during early covid 19 lock down and the pharmacy manger had taken the initiative to create barrier at front of pharmacy for social distancing. Staff where friendly, well trained, helpful and welcoming. Most of the team has been at the same branch for years so shows staff have stuck around. Work load was busy due to covid 19 but with the correct team we managed. Would recommend and go back myself.

Lloydspharmacy101-103 High St, Prestatyn LL19 9APChaotic branch, staff can't find prescription having to re-dispense. Flustered and passive aggressive behaviour. Poor customer service in my opinion. Don't know if it was because of the pandemic but felt like that branch was going through a breakdown. Not safe at the minute (march time)

Lloydspharmacy386 Linthorpe Rd, Middlesbrough TS5 6HAStaff were decent however workload super high. Plenty of checking and then a care home too along with trays etc. Normally a 2 pharmacist site however was only me on this particular day. Also due to coronovirus they did close for an hour during the day. I always take an hour lunch wherever I go and when I got back they said pharmacists only get 20mins break. I replied that I take an hour like it or not. Manager should really know better that a 20min break at this branch is unacceptable. Other than that staff were okay but would not go back for a rate any lower than 35fm at the minimum.

LloydspharmacyElm Hayes Health Centre, Clandown Rd, Paulton BS39 7SFOne of the worst Pharmacies I have worked in, walked into a branch which has yet to label five days of prescriptions, was a genuine hellhole. No methadone left. Basics not being done right. patients also made false promises, constantly. Very dangerous working conditions and branch would be shut down had a GPhC inspector turned up.

LloydspharmacyKeynsham Health Centre, St Clements Rd, Keynsham, Bristol BS31 1AGDespite the review. The staff is brilliant and very easy to get along with, also very supportive. Branch is behind but who isn't. They have a lot of tray patients that seem to be given to the locums and not their regular Pharmacists. Their tray system is also very laborious, will sometimes be given fully sealed trays with no splits or pils.

Workload was at least 2-3 days behind but despite this was still expected to carry out CD check. Counter assistant was inexperienced and needed constant support. Patients dropped in all day for complex consultations, OOH referrals etc. Queue of customers was about 10-12 waiting to be served all day with a 40 min wait for prescriptions/minor ailments. Expected to check nomads which were due that same day. Staff are nice and friendly, not their fault that they are short of staff but the shift could have done with a second pharmacist to clear the backlog. Felt like a very unsafe working environment.

New Mill PharmacyPost Office, 6 Huddersfield Rd, New Mill, Holmfirth HD9 7JUBranch is based inside a post office, i was booked as an emergency locum on short notice, however had no warning I would be on my own all day. It is a very small Pharmacy based in a post office. you serve customers through the hatch. Basically i was landed right in it, they use ProScript.

Overall, the work load wasn't too bad and it was a steady day but in terms of recommending to other locums, i would say maybe.

Newport Pharmacy2 Market St, Newport SA42 0PHExcellent pharmacy and competent staff
Northwood Pharmacy88 Main Road, Rugeley Town, Rugeley WS15 1DYThis is one of the worst assignments ever. The staff were very unfriendly and never spoke to me. They seemed very unhappy that I didn’t know their computer system although my locum profile shows all my experience with other systems.
A few days later Team Locum passed on an email saying I would not be rebooked. I felt unjustly treated
Northwood Pharmacy88 Main Road, Rugeley Town, Rugeley WS15 1DYThis is The unfriendliest and unhelpful bunch of staff I’ve ever come across . To make things worse, instead of helping me they stood around slagging off the absent store pharmacist, other staff, upper management. To be honest this isn’t the kind of company I’d ever work for, so disorganised themselves but with sky-high expectations of the locums.
Poor pay and no respect for the profession of pharmacy
Orestpharm96 Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth A member of counter staff has left and not replaced which means from 2pm to pm there will be just yourself and one member of staff in the shop.
The customers are generally rude and impatient. Recently had Columbus computer system and nobody had proper training. Locums are left high and dry
Paydens97 Canterbury Rd, Hawkinge, Folkestone CT18 7BSGreat branch, well staffed, covered a four hour shift. Would go back.
Pharmacy2UPharmacy2U Ltd, Lumina, Park Approach, Leeds LS15 8GByou turn up, the buzzer doesnt work so you cant get in unless someone lets you in (excellent security). No one bothers to come down to get you, even though they're expecting an locum and the buzzer doesn't work. You spend the whole day doing an ACT job, checking dosettes for 8 hours. Wouldn't recommend coming here unless you really love checking dosettes and nothing else.
Pharmacyworld45 Redhill Rd, Stockton-on-Tees TS19 9BXSome very dubious things going on here. Constant CD balance issues which ACT trys to cover up, staff using "vapes" in the dispensary, lots and lots of near misses, stock all over. Baskets piled up all over. An accident waiting to happen.
Pharmisense118 Adelaide St, Blackpool FY1 4LPStaff swear and are overworked and can take it out on patients.No organisation or manager.
Pharmisense118 Adelaide St, Blackpool FY1 4LPBy far one of the worst places. 8k item shop and negotiated rates seemed fair. However I was not aware that the branch had no staff. On arrival I was greeted by one regular member of staff who was fully competent. Got told she's leaving at 4, whilst the pharmacy remains open until 6. Locum dispenser joined us later on who was working until finish however we were both left to close. Which was bizarre considering, neither of us had worked there previously. To top it off, one of the owners retired gp popped in to scan a few scripts and left despite seeing the struggle. The branch has no regular pharmacist or manager, so I think you're constantly playing catchup this then results in dealing with angry patients. Definitely underpaid and overworked, not worth the rate and headache. Plus I dont think it was safe environment to work in. So definitely negotiate higher and check staffing.

3 days before this shift, the coordinator wanted to move me to a different store which is extra one hour journey. I pre booked this shift 3 weeks in advance. She said I should try to switch one of the 2 days I booked. I said No and she kept trying to persuade me. Very bad.

Rowlands1 Middle Park Way, Bedhampton, Havant PO9 4ABNot the best of the environment and weird vibes from one of the staff first half of the day who probably fees like she's the one running the branch...the off-site dispensing handling was a bit messy but not too crazy. Team-work culture definitely missing as two dispensers couldn't be bothered to help out counter lady even when she was running around trying to serve shop full of people. Had to ask them to help out number of times. Felt sorry for the stressed counter lady.
Rowlands1 The Cobbles, Station Street, Meltham, HD9 5QQStaff are used to doing things their own way, as they have a regular pharmacist who must be very laid back. An example: they try and measure Methadone out between them and don’t involve the pharmacist. Had to intervene to check it. Also senior dispenser can be rude at times.

Very high error rate ( I picked up 17 within the first hour!) Patients very frustrated and aggressive. A locum was assulted the day before I was there. The AM informed me it has failed inspection
Rowlands30 The Town, Dewsbury WF12 0RBGood branch, busy, next to a doctors surgery, would potentially recommend to other locums. Was however constantly unnecessarily pressured to carrying out services from start to finish. Found many errors in CD register too.
Rowlands323a Grimsby Rd, Cleethorpes DN35 7ESThe Pharmacy was spacious and had a good checking area for the Pharmacist. There was a carpark with space for the Pharmacist to park. There were shops nearby. The Pharmacy itself was big and clean and well organised. There was a consultation room and a small room in the back for staff to have lunch. The staff were friendly, helpful and hardworking. Never complained or harassed me to work faster. Good communication between staff and myself. They were open to questions and very helpful in answering any queries I had. The Pharmacy is connected to a GP Surgery and therefore was very busy. There were a few walk ins. CPCS was not in play as of yet but because it was connected to the surgery I wouldn't think it would be too busy with CPCS anyways. I had a 20 minute lunch break where the staff did not disturb me at all and when waiting times were increased I was kept in the loop. Was a very good experience to work there. The only issue I had was with the drive to Cleethorpes. As it was 85 miles from where I am based it was a long trek and very tiring. For this reason and because it is a busy Pharmacy I would negotiate accordingly if I were to work there again. All in all a good experience.
Rowlands33 Rhyl Coast Rd, Rhyl LL18 3RDGood branch. Lovely staff. A lot of new staff taken on so they are slightly behind on scripts
Rowlands34 High St, Lyndhurst SO43 7BGWasn't informed that there would be no dispenser on the day. I did have 2 counter assts. Having lost pharmacist manager and long-time dispensers earlier this yr, the management was not great. Lucky they use proscript and patients understood why the waiting time was bit longer than normal.. Not the best experience for my first shift in rowlands but other companies have been much worse. Wish the hardworking of the pair, Nikki, all the best!

Branch was understandably couple of days behind on scripts considering the patients/customers rush and covid 19 panic. Had to ask the dispenser not to rush and panic when I saw her visibly stressed with a bit of reassurance. Increased the wait time and informed everyone. Most were understanding enough. Just glad it didn't get to a point where we had to shut. Not the most well-spaced and arranged branch. Thankful it was a dispenser and not a counter asst on the day. Overall, one of the busiest 4h shift ever.

RowlandsRowlands Pharmacy 8 Leeds Rd, Hipperholme, Halifax HX3 8NDThe Pharmacy is on a busy main road but does have a carpark across the road and a Tesco for food/drink. It was average sized, they had a consultation area and a small area for the Pharmacist to check Rxs. There is only one methadone patient and much of the work is through delivery. There are a few walk ins throughout the day. I was working with one staff member throughout the day who was late in arriving and opening the Pharmacy. They were very helpful and friendly however. The Pharmacy was not every busy. I had time to sit down and have my lunch (20 min) uninterrupted. There were no issues working here. I would work here again as it is near to my home but as it is a very quiet Pharmacy it may not be to every pharmacists taste. The staff member made a huge difference in my experience. She was very friendly and open and lively to work with.

Rowlands617 Wakefield Rd, Tandem, Huddersfield HD5 9XPThe pharmacy itself is small and attached to a surgery so it is quite busy even on weekends. There is space for free parking and it is quite easy to find. There is also a supermarket nearby for food/drink during breaks. The pharmacy behind the counter was a little small and cramped, area for checking was very small. The workload is pretty high, there was a lot of rxs to be checked coming back from the Hub and a lot of walk ins. Staff were friendly and hardworking unfortunately they didn't know much about cpcs and the Internet wasn't working the whole shift I was there so couldn't do any cpcs anyways. The dispensers also expect you to dispense if the place isn't busy but as it was busy I didn't find myself doing that. There weren't any blue scripts when I was there. Overall a good experience.

RowlandsLeigh View Medical Practice, Bradford Rd, Tingley, Wakefield WF3 1RQThe Pharmacy itself is very large, it has plenty of space to move around, the checking area is large and spacious and it has a consultation area for customers. There is also a carpark. It is connected to a surgery next door and therefore it is a very busy Pharmacy. There were six staff members on with me during my shift, however, only two were actually working. The front was constantly busy, people were queuing out the door many times throughout the day. The phone was constantly ringing and staff never answered even when they weren't doing anything. There were many errors and mistakes I picked up during checking prescriptions but when mentioned to staff members they were either uninterested or found it offensive. Waiting times were constantly up to half an hour, sometimes longer. Some staff were friendly enough but not very helpful. I was basically checking prescriptions, bagging them, going out, handing them out and repeat. I was also constantly pressurised to perform MURs which was extremely unpractical seeing as how busy we were. Obviously with the long waiting time and staff not greeting all customers as soon as possible, customers were extremely irate and whilst handing out Rxs I got the brunt of their bad tempers. I had a 20 minute lunch but because we were so busy I only had time to sit for ten minutes before going back to work. I may never work here again even if I was paid a higher rate and if there was a second Pharmacist on duty with me. Frankly it isn't worth the stress or pressure.
RowlandsLeigh View Medical Practice, Bradford Rd, Tingley, Wakefield WF3 1RQA lot pressure put on my the dispensing manager to hit at at least 2 MURs per day in the busy pharmacy. When I told her ‘I’ll see if the patient requires one and if I have time’ she became abrupt and raised her voice saying ‘no, you will do them’. During the course of the day they tried putting patients into the consultation room without asking me. There was another older dispenser working there who was condescending to any decisions made by myself. There was a lot of ill talk about other Locums and the previous manager that worked there.

RowlandsRowlands Pharmacy Shipley Health Centre, Shipley, Yorkshire, West Yorkshire BD18 3EGThis Pharmacy had a carpark and there was an Asda nearby to buy food and drink. The Pharmacy itself was large and had a checking area for the Pharmacist and a consultation area. It was raining when I arrived. I was five minutes early and there was a staff member inside so I knocked on the door. I was not let in and I waited five minutes in the rain. Another staff member who was sitting in a nearby parked car came out and then let me in. They did not introduce themself and when I gave my name replied "We'll just call you Boss because you're only here for today". Both members of staff were very unfriendly and ignored me throughout the whole shift. I was told to just start there and was directed to a checking area filled with baskets. Whenever a patient requested to speak with the Pharmacist I was not informed or called and the staff decided to deal with the issues themselves, even an emergency supply at one point, which when I told them that that would be done after I had spoken to the patient myself was faced with both staff members being very condescending and patronising. I found their attitude very rude and nasty. The Pharmacy itself was very busy with walk ins and methadone patients. I wouldn't care to work here again purely based on the attitude and behaviour of the staff there.

Don't really care for your opinion and would expect you to bend over backwards for customers even when the requests are somewhat unacceptable. Upon disagreeing with the manager be prepared to have zero communication.
Late hours and poor pay.
Avoid, avoid, avoid.
Even the surgery has issues with the pharmacy and owners.
Not a good independent.
Shelf Pharmacy14 Carr House Rd, Halifax HX3 7QYExcellent branch from top to bottom, a family independent Pharmacy. all the staff are wonderful and I wouldn't hesitate for a second if I had the chance to work there again.

South Side pharmacy79-81 Nicolson St, Edinburgh EH8 9BZAvoid at all costs. This pharmacy is a train wreck. Owner is more interested in money transfers and selling cosmetics. The place is so delapidaded it should be condemned. They gather rubbish down in the massive celler instead of paying for a refuge company to take the bin bags away.
Stewart PharmacyStewart Pharmacy, 55 High St, Stewarton, Kilmarnock KA3 5BPExcellent branch, from start to finish, the Pharmacy owner pre-warned me of road closures which came in handy. The staff in branch were lovely to work with and I would definitely go back there, the branch also closes for an hour lunch so the day doesn't feel as long. Had an ACT during the day I worked who checked the dossett trays. good parking outside and a newsagents close by available for lunch too.
Superdrug12 All Saints Walk The Riding, Wakefield WF1 1USonly 1 member of staff. no staff after 4pm. They expect you to open and close the pharmacy. whilst i was on my 30min lunch the pre-reg was dispensing even though i had signed out of the RP log.
Superdrug20 Princess Alexandra Walk, Huddersfield HD1 2TT2 staff working. quiet store. staff in the pharmacy are friendly. A lot of politics with the store manager so just keep note.
Superdrug 205 Grange Road, Birkemhead, Wirral, CH41 2PFAt least one member of staff in all day (but it doesn't sound like there is anyone else in with you at all if you book a weekend shift!). Mostly well organised, on top of the workload.
Superdrug18a Westmorland Shopping Centre, Kendal LA9 4LRNice branch, small workload, friendly staff. The only negative is due to only being with a dispenser and counter assistant, when the dispenser was making up trays, the counter assistant would pick stock. I then had to label and sticker up. I refused to do big scripts like these and they where very understanding. The branch is extremely quiet. The busiest time was during the morning with the afternoons being dead. Parking within the shopping centre is only a £1 before 9am.
Superdrug7-9 Piccadilly, Manchester M1 1LYWorst pharmacy I have ever worked for, zero staff available, rude regional manager that threatens to report you to GPhC if you raise concerns about under staffing, overall would not recommend to any locum regardless of rate
SuperdrugUnit 28 Broadwalk Shopping Centre, Wells Road, Knowle, Bristol BS4 2QBBranch is excellent, a Superdrug Pharmacy which has real staff who are good and supportive. I would recommend this branch to locum Pharmacists. Pharmacy has a fair few dossett tray patients, not too many methadone.
Superdrug76 Mostyn St, Llandudno LL30 2SBPleasant staff, however lack of them. Store manager informed me of staffing level at the start of the shift. Was supposed to expect a dispenser at 10.30 but no show, has been going on for some time. Only ran on 2 members of staff (dispenser and counter assistant) plus pharmacist. Refused to self-disepense and self-check, you most probably won't get booked again.
Superdrug23-25 Toll Gavel, Beverley HU17 9AAIt's a Superdrug, one member of staff who was an ACT, she was kind, helpful and supportive. Branch is steady but can get busy at times if there are problems. Would check at time of booking if you'll have staff on the day. No free parking around the area so would negotiate at time of booking.

Superdrug3-5 paternoster square EC4M 8ABPharmacy only does superdrug online doctor therefore work load is low and enough for just a pharmacist thus no other staff is required. The regular pharmacist/ manager is very helpful, she calls Locums a week before to go through all the details of the pharmacy leaves helpful hand over notes and her phone number for any problems. Contacted her a few times during shifts she has responded promptly and is always helpful to solve issues and answer queries. However most of the day there is little to no work to do and the superdrug manager tends to treat pharmacist’s as a regular member of shop floor staff she is rude and inconsiderate, while taking a phone call from an online dr she thinks the pharmacist is doing nothing and give snarky remarks to carry out regular till sales when she should just put her own shop staff there. She also likes to listen in to shop floor consultation and makes surprised facial expression when telling patients there conditions are better treated by a prescription online medicine and to therefore see a doctor I have learnt this is due to the fact their pharmacy till sales are low I should sell anything to just make a sale. Easy place to work and can get very quiet.

SuperdrugOvergate Shopping Centre, Lower 24, DD1 1UF

Busy branch. Organised.
Superdrug7-9 Piccadilly, Manchester M1 1LYNone of the staff were trained. I completed 10 ehc consultations in one day. I kept having to tell the counter assistants to watch the counter as they wanted to dispense. I finished 20 minutes later than booked while I waited for a manager to close up pharmacy and to sign me out/search me at end of day.
Swettenham PharmacyFPP41 95 Kingsway, Newton, Chester, CH2 2LJVery polite, helpful and well-trained staff. Enough to keep branch running safely and effectively, were able to answer all the questions I had and were handy with the kettle. Staff at other local branches willing to help if we had any other questions or issues. Closed for lunch and not disturbed for any work related issues. Hope to be invited back.

Tesco12 Weston Favell Centre, Weston Favell, Northampton NN3 8JZParking. As it is a Tesco there is a large car park but staff are suppose to park in a different car park on top of the shopping center. If it is your first time working probably can get away with parking in customer car park but check with manager on what best to do. If its the first time parking in staff car park might be worth asking pharmacy manager if one of the staff to accompany you in your car as it is not straight forward to find.

It can be busy but I do find there are plenty of staff by 9am (before this you can be on your own, standard Tesco practice). The pharmacy seems to not fall behind and can keep up with the workload. There are about 5-10 blue scripts so not a big amount and the patient tend to be okay. I found if a patient was missing an item they ordered but not sent to us they are accepting and are happy to query with the surgery. The pharmacy managers and staff are also welcoming and happy.

Staffing level are good but the training of the staff is mixed. I found I was intervening in simple things like getting someones name and searching the system as the counter staff/dispenser where struggling so I advised them to write the name and date of birth and search using DOB. Also found in the retrieval box multiple separate prescription for the same person and when some staff where retrieving prescription from the shelf they would only give out the first one they saw and not go trough the whole pile to find separated ones. If it happens rarely its not a big deal but I found was having to help in task that do not need a pharmacist quite often. On a positive not it is a busy pharmacy and staffing is adequate from 9am to 8-9pm as with all Tesco you will be on your own for a few hours.

I would come back here again but be prepared to be helpful to the staff, they are nice.

Tesco1 The Square, Notley Green, Great Notley, Braintree CM77 7WWStaff are lazy.
Tesco7 Broughton Road EDINBURGHReasonably quiet but a dreadful PMR system which makes for a stressful shift. Most of the staff don't seem to know how to use it and those that do claim it cannot be relied on as it cancels owings, drops items from patients histories and doesn't always order stock. Some staff seem badly trained and helpless. In particular keep an eye on OTC sales, I had to stop a few that were incorrect.

TescoBiscay Way, Wath upon Dearne, Rotherham S63 7DAThe branch had adequate levels of staff during the morning shift, however they still wanted you to dispense/label pick stock answer the phone. When telling them I don’t dispense they got really annoyed and said it’s your job, and the regular pharmacist does it. The technician complained to the store manager (non pharmacist) who got really rude and aggressive towards me and said we don’t want people like that working here. Customer service was awful giving up 1-2 hour waiting times even though the workload was manageable.

TescoSt. Oswalds St, Liverpool L13 2BYStarted just with one staff in morning which wasn't enough and many walking prescriptions turned up. So wasn't a good staff level to begin with, then after an hour another staff came which became batter. But during the shift staffs were not very accurate in dispensing and made lots of mistakes during dispensing which I picked up during the final check. One of resident pharmacist turned up for shift but manner wasn't good towards me from beginning !

On Saturdays Locums have to work Five Hours by themselves (from 5pm to 10pm). If you asked for a staff, reply is "Tesco's can't afford it". Very poorly managed branch and the Manager never likes to clear EPS, always leaves for the Locums to check and prepare them.

TescoGateford Road, Worksop, S81 7APThey have an ACT but she only checks when the pharmacy manager is there i think. Ridiculous workload, staff don’t let you catch up, they constantly download, print and dispense EPS scripts. This pharmacy has got a lot busier because another nearby closed. Staff are nice enough they just don’t let you catch up.
Tesco1 Glover Dr, Upper Edmonton, London N18 3HFA lot of dispensing assistants in the dispensary with their backs to the counter, "doing paperwork". Apparently, it is the locum's job to man the tills, dispense, self check , do murs and nms. Staff can be quite rude and cliquey. Gave them the benefit of the doubt and returned for another shift after giving the manager some feedback but things were worse than first shift. Avoid if you can. Very disorganized and unhelpful branch.

TescoKiln Croft Ln, Handforth, Wilmslow SK9 3PAGood branch just a little boring with lack of workload
TescoTesco Pharmacy, Clannell Rd, Northampton NN4 0JFParking as it is Tesco plenty of parking space although you do have to register your car. The pharmacy manager can help or store manager. Regular pharmacist are welcoming and pleasure to work with, pharmacy manger make sure they can get as much staff in during busy periods or sickness to the extent of having a locum dispenser who works regular days, as with all Tesco and supermarkets staffing isnt the best but this branch has been good. As this is a 8am to 8pm store you will have enough staff during your shift. Staff are welcoming and are well trained. Some have been at the branch for years and know what they are doing. When you have a full set of staff their is enough people so you can just focus on pharmacist work. Occasionally I helped on the counter when things got busy and the counter assistant where busy. Pharmacy is clean and well organised although the drugs on the shelf are separated (e.g. sertraline 50mg and 100mg will be on separate shelves instead of next t each other) so to reduce errors which is brilliant but if you do not dispense often here you will struggle to find things but as a locum I didn't find myself dispensing often and if I asked staff where happy to show me.

Workload is busy a fair amount of dispensing but I never felt I was overworked or overwhelmed as there is sufficient staff. Counter can get busy but not overwhelmingly. There are a few addicts but less then 10 for the day. Customers are pleasant and they are happy to chase issues with the surgery.

Overall good branch and well staffed for a Tesco, would recommend, even during covid 19.
TescoEast Rd, Northallerton DL6 1NPBusy pharmacy that is well run, with managers that value good locums. No pressure for services, alongside helpful staff.
The Clitheroe PharmacyUnit 2, 32 King St, Clitheroe BB7 2EPStaff are nice. The place is generally quite disorganised with prescriptions going missing left, right and center. Unclear whether this is because of the pharmacy or because of the local surgery, I suspect both.
My main gripe with payment. The first few times I worked here the whole experience was good. The new owner will not pay you in a rush and do the maximum possible to delay and minimise payment. Where mileage was originally paid, he removed it this time. There are several locums who are unhappy with this branch and during the period I worked there there had been several phone calls from locums chasing up payment. It took me 3 months to be paid.
While the area is nice and there's a low volume of methadone patients some of the regulars can be quite pushy and unacceptably late payment means I won't work for them again

High footfall even during the corona virus season. Lots of methadone patients but have a methameasure so it's all good. Spotted a few cd discrepancies.. however, I would recommend

The main problem I had was the (non-pharmacist) manager. She was very rude and pushy. Undermined me on professional and clinical issues on a number of occasions. Told me to answer the phone when I was clearly busy and she was chatting away in the shop. I was not far from contacting Well area manager to report her as her conduct was completely unacceptable and for some I would consider it bullying.
The other staff were very nice however. The shop would be a nice session if it weren't for the manager

Bearing in mind these dossete had to be delivered today.
Numerous patient owings or whereabouts of scripts was questioned.
Pile of rx to be dispensed so literally meant every patient coming and looking through a pile of rxs.

The shop was using the new scanning system and the manager told me to leave all the checking and put on all the hub scripts which arrived in 3 totes and match them up with the prescriptions and then scan them onto the shelves which was time consuming while also doing waiters!!
when there was 15mins left before end of shift she told me to leave the shelving scanning of scripts and to clincally check all these before shift ends!!

Lots of angry patients. I will be warning my locum friends about how bad it is, and how stressful it is. Words just cannot describe how unorganised and dire it is. It should be closed and the contract given to another company or person.

WellLovely Ln, Warrington WA5 1QGNot sure about the morning shift but If you do the night shift at this branch after 20:00 there is no other staff except the pharmacist. They expect the pharmacist to lock up the pharmacy. And on a Sunday which is a 13hours shift there are no staff at all and they expect the pharmacist to run the whole pharmacy by himself/herself. Pharmacist to open pharmacy, doing the shutters and setting alarm and close pharmacy. I don’t understand how they will allow a locum pharmacist to do all that. Bear in mind, this is a pharmacy next to an out of hour surgery, expect to have quite a lot of acute medication , antibiotic prescriptions and quite a few End of life prescriptions. The whole Sunday you will have to dispense and self-check. Because it’s out of hours it is unpredictable how busy it can get. They don’t tell you this when you book the shift, I only found out that I had to open the store the day before the shift and they will send a guide to you about how to get the keys from the out of hours reception.
WellMayfield Road, Edinburgh Appallingly disorganised. There was work outstanding from 3 days previously. Trays, deliveries and installments had not been prepared. The staff were pleasant but did not know how to get to a screen to sign me in as RP or where the RP log was kept.

On Sundays you are expected open the branch and work by yourself for 13 hours with no staff! This place is an accident waiting to happen. Apparently some locums are happy to work in this condition!
WellThe Health Centre Pharmacy, 56 Croxteth Hall Ln, Liverpool L11 4UGPoorly organised branch. Unrealistic expectations of workload.
WellWell Ellesmere Port Overpool Road CH66 1JNThe branch manager and staff have left. There is 1 dispenser who has been working only 3 months in the pharmacy. There was 1 relief staff member who is new to Well.

There were Rx’s from over a week still left on the spine not processed and completed nor were they sent to the Hub. Patients were promised medication would be ready after coming in multiple times but still not ready not even labelled.

Dispensary stock for a week were left in totes around the dispensary, unable to walk in the dispensary safely. This is a major hazard as the dispenser fell. There is not enough stock on the shelves so you are dispensing from totes. Wait times were 2 hours and even then we could not keep up as there were too many queries and too many patients on the counter. The shops shelves were really empty with about 6 Bestway totes behind the counter full of stock.

General lack of organisation and leadership. Not enough staff to get it back right. It’s very unsafe to work in the branch. I did not get a lunch break and considered closing the shop for the rest of the day. I didn’t because it was close to bank holiday and worked at a safe pace to get what I could out.

I was honest with patients and they generally understood. Either they took prescriptions elsewhere or waiting in the 2-3 hour queue.

Well105 Prince Consort Rd, Gateshead NE8 1LRI booked direct as I have worked for Well for some years and have learned only to go to certain shops as others are bad news.I rarely go to this branch but certainly made a big mistake going there the last day I worked there.It has gone downhill in a big way.Unfortunately I was booked for two days running and spent the night before in mental turmoil considering whether to ring in sick or honour the booking.I chose the latter but would never return and cancelled a subsequent booking there I had for two weeks ahead.
As a background,I believe I am a good and experienced pharmacist and work extremely hard,giving my all at work and try my utmost to get on with people I work with.(I have been told this many times in places where I am appreciated)
My first task was to take the methadone out of the cabinet for the many addicts who frequent this shop.I know there are a lot and I like to have them organised as they can come in very early.This time I had a huge shock as many more addicts had been taken on and they literally fell out of the huge cabinet.None are in alphabetical order and it takes an enormous amount of time to even find them among hundreds of bottles.Some of the addicts can be a problem here and this alone was a major stress.
One of the dispensers is a vile bully.She had had a "bad week" and chose to take it out on me.She stomped and crashed about the whole time in the dispensary,so much so that I couldn't concentrate on my checking and feared that I had made some mistakes.I was presented with several large trays to check (normally not a problem as I'm well used to them).However I uncovered mistake after mistake and had to ask her to correct them.This was not well received by her.At one point she thundered to me"who has left these baskets here?"I had been putting methadones up and had inadvertently forgotten to put two small baskets away.They weren't in anyone's way and I'm a tidy worker having had 20 years experience in many pharmacies.By this point I had had more than enough of her appalling attitude towards me and I bit back at her.
The pharmacist manager came in for part of the day to do some computer work and although she could clearly see what was happening she chose to ignore it.
At the end of the first day the bully left early leaving a junior who had never locked up before to shut the shop.She had been given no instruction on how to do so and was in a flap when it came to hometime. Believing she had been given the bully's number in case of problems,she rang it and it had been given one digit short which she believed to be deliberate.There was no one else she could contact, as the manager had by then left the country on holiday.I waited as long as I could with her but had an evening booking elsewhere so had to go.
This place is bad news and a serious incident waiting to happen.No point in complaining to locum co-ordinators etc as you will be blacklisted for your trouble.The locum co-ordinators are effectively complicit.

Well28 Benson Rd, Birchwood, Warrington WA3 7PQUnprofessional manager, doesn't lead by example in my opinion. However, pleasant to staff. Corona virus 2 meter company measures were laughed at. If the staff don't take this pandemic situation serious, how could we expect the public to take precautionary measures. It was quite appalling. Had double cover which was needed however the workload was just too much, couldn't shift it. Branch is situated within a mall or something, with a surgery nearby so take into consideration when offering.

WellLS9 7SU on Lincoln road. Well 200215I wouldn’t go back there if they paid me 100ph plus 10 hours. They are Nasty vile rude and toxic people. They have no self respect. They will try to undermine you and question you and your practice. Not to mention the pharmacy is a tip. But that’s not even the issue it’s the awful environment. You have to be direct and don’t let them sense any weakness. They will eat you like vultures. They are bullies and gang up on you. My recommendation is to not go there. Full stop. But if you do. Be prepared
WellPutnoe, Queens Drive, MK41 9BSBranch is extremely busy, very high workload. Not all staff are trained correctly and did not tell me what time the Hub was due to be sent off, the staff who know what they're doing are good and make the shift not as bad.

Whitworths Chemist219 School Rd, Sheffield S10 1GNWhitworth Chemist, is one of the best companies around, this branch in particular is excellent. The staff were great. The manager showed me around the branch before work which always helps and informed what was required and expected from me on the day. Had a few trays to check but overall a steady and enjoyable day with good people. Would recommend this branch to other locums. Would reach there with plenty of time in advance as parking situation is poor.

Wise Pharmacy11 London Road, Sandbach, CW11 3BD The branch is very quiet. When booking shifts with this company (from personal experience and from speaking to other locums) the company will promise things but won’t honour that which is agreed.

This leaves locums out of pocket as they could have achieved higher rates closer to home. Even though workload is light in this branch that does not have a bearing on the rate.

The ‘pharmacy director’ is an ex-Lloyd’s areas manager so you can expect the run around and no concrete agreements. So beware when negotiating as the company will pressure pharmacists and staff with no legal basis to do so.

I would avoid as it’s not worth it - there are plenty of other shifts available with companies who are straight forward.

Boots UKBoots 5558 Siain Columb Major Tr9 6AFNo enough staff due to shielding and the shortfall not made up by relief help. Not particularly well organised staff who are worn out after months of low staff. No regular pharmacist. Store manager left too.
PillboxHeath end pharmacy, 103 Farnborough Road, Heath End, Farnham GU9 9AWThis branch is unsafe. Everything is just wrong with this store. Untrained staff, no staff most times and just pharmacist alone sometimes. Management don't support you and expects you to get work done since you are the RP. They don't give you staff which makes the day stressful and blame you if work isn't done. Every patient that comes in moan and insult the locum because its either they cant find the prescription and have been told to come back with no preparation which is frustrating since there isn't a regular pharmacist and staff are not competent. Store is very disorganized and you struggle to find prescriptions, CD discrepancies, dispensing errors, etc. Most stocks are expired and the stocks needed for Rx are never ordered. Dispenser in charge of trays/dispensing aren't trained and makes so many mistakes. I would never go back and would not advise anyone to put their registration at risk by doing so.
CohensEssex House, Essex Rd, Basingstoke RG21 8SUWell staffed branch with surgery upstairs which makes it very easy to deal with queries. Not too busy, just moderately busy (less items) compare to the big store in town. Staff members are very competent so all you do is just check. Staff are polite also and makes it a very nice environment to work.
Superdrug44-46 Montague St, Worthing BN11 3HEVery quiet pharmacy, there's a counter assistant and part time dispenser who mainly does trays and help with dispensing. They do around 1500 items a month. The customers are nice and pharmacy is up to date with dispensing, most times there's nothing to do which makes it boring. Its one minute walk to the beach also. Very relaxed branch
LloydspharmacyLloyds MorecambeLimited work space, poor staffing
WellWoodlands, DoncasterGood branch
WellArlington Road,KentonThe dispensary was tiny like a rat hole and made the staff behave likewise.There were too many bodies crammed into this small space and the workload was high, with baskets left over from the manager who likes locums to have the highest possible workload and stress levels for the menial rate paid.That in itself would be bearable if it wasn't for the control freak pharmacist manager(known as "psycho")to come in on her days off for the sole purpose of dissing the locum.You are expected to continually put all of the bags away on the crammed shelves when you have checked them and if you don't put them on the shelves according to size, then your life is literally made hell by her.(bear in mind that there is NO room to put anything.I have been there a few times but stopped going some time ago as I was made to feel like a piece of dirt on the end of her shoe, despite my best efforts at providing a professional and friendly service.Its a shame as the staff work hard and are generally ok people when she is not there.
