Aim RX LtdAppleton Village, 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.

AsdaWoodchurch Rd, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 5PDThis is a good branch and I would recommend
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.
AsdaWalney Rd, Barrow-in-Furness LA14 5UGGood
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
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 when having to work along side her.

Ash grove pharmacy31 England Ln, Knottingley WF11 0JA
Ash Grove pharmacy31 England Ln, Knottingley WF11 0JAThe pharmacy is a very very busy pharmacy. So it's not for everyone. However if you are doing the nights there are hardly any staff which can be mayhem when there is a huge queue of customers.

Biddulph Pharmacy1-3 Tunstall Rd, Biddulph, Stoke-on-Trent ST8 6HJStaff were very helpful and understanding.
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.
Boots750 Bristol Rd S, Birmingham B31 2NN
Boots26-30 George St, Bathgate EH48 1PWVery well run. However short staffed which made the day difficult and mentally draining. Would have been ideal having one more member of staff to help serve customers. Also expected to be on your own for first 15 minutes
Boots19-20 Broadway, Catterick Garrison DL9 4RF
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.
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.

Boots 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.

Would not recommend working here again unless major improvements are made.

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.
BootsBarnsley Cortonwood Retail ParkVery 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.

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.
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!

BootsTrowbridgeThe Shires Gateway, 32 - 33 Bythesea Rd, Trowbridge BA14 8FZ
BootsLymington high st, 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.
BootsRegent Rd, Ordsall Ln, Salford M5 3TPStaff were friendly however there weren’t enough. No managers on site. I was expected to carry out various tasks preventing me from focusing on my professional duty i.e serve on tills, answer calls for beauty department.

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.

Day Lewis11 Molyneux Way, Liverpool L10 2JANice branch to work at. Staff are lovely and helpful.
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 road, BH12 5BFPleasant and well-trained staff. Very well managed so there weren't mountains of baskets waiting nor scripts missing or being misfiled.

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.

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.

The 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.

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.

Lloydspharmacy266 Gleadless Road, Sheffield, S2 3AH1 or 2 of the staff came across very rude. I won’t be returning.
Lloydspharmacy9 Badsley Moor Lane, Rotherham, S65 2QNPlease use this review not the previous one. Workload was unbearable. Walked into a huge backlog, many patients were coming and being told to come back later. I was also checking trays as the patient was waiting. Very stressful. Feedback about the regular pharmacist from the staff suggests she is lazy and doesn’t check was it urgent.
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.

Cramped space
Lloydspharmacy518 Hagley Rd W, Birmingham, Oldbury B68 0BZNo dispenser all day
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.

Lloydspharmacy1-5 Westgate, Bridlington YO16 4QFUnderstaffed and Non trained staff. Incompetent manager. Pharmacist has to do everything including labelling most of the days.

LloydspharmacyFoxes road, Newport, PO30 5ZBOverall it was a good shift, got quiet towards the end. Only a handful walk-ins towards the end late at night served through a hatch. Typical Sainsbury's Lloyds with no any drama.
LloydspharmacyArrowe Park Hospital, Arrowe Park Rd, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 5PEGood branch. Free parking at hospital. Not too busy. Staff are great. Would definitely work here again but only at £30+
LloydspharmacyKings Parade, King St, Cottingham HU16 5QQManager Kelly is really friendly and helpful but staff levels are always low at this branch. Have worked here previously about 3 times and it's the same those times as well. Usually just have a pile of baskets to check nothing too big and a steady stream of walk ins and occasionally have to do accuracy and clinical checks on off site dispensing but pretty straightforward
Lloydspharmacy35 Main St, Gorebridge EH23 4BX
Lloydspharmacy1 Station Rd, Kendal LA9 6RY
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.
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.

LloydspharmacyLloyds, Linthorpe Road 7390
386 Linthorpe Road, MIDDLESBROUGH, Cleveland, TS5 6HA
Very 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.
Lloydspharmacy29 Derby St, Stoke on Trent, ST1 3LEBranch can get busy, pharmacy not very organised and messy thus increased pressure on staff
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.
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.

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

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
Lloydspharmacy210 Fulford Rd, York YO10 4DXGood branch. Was behind on care homes so that was a priority, repeat medication workload was okay. Staff were helpful so day went smoothly. Parking is a nightmare so try get on street parking adjacent to pharmacy otherwise it will cost you £10

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.
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.
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.
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.

LloydspharmacyRoyton Health & Wellbeing Ctre, Park Street, Royton OL2 6QWNever used compass before 12k item store in full 15 hrs of opening with a new counter staff that wasn't allowed in dispensary. Had no login to computers didn't know where anything was and shop full of patients. Ended up hand writing labels and self checking until a dispemser came in at 5 pm to do something in the consultation room So still left alone with security guard and a shop full of people when asked for help response of dispenser was she was busy and that I have to work in the dispensary alone as that's just the way it is

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.

TescoPenrhos Industrial Estate, Penrhos, Holyhead LL65 2UH
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 !

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.
TescoThe Loom, Derby St, Leigh WN7 4BANo qualified staff were present. The only one that was present for only Three hours. The technician Kept complaining about others. 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.

TescoThorne Rd, Edenthorpe, Doncaster DN3 2JEI am a regular. It gets too hot in summer due to AC not working. Not comy at all.
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.

Well9 Market Pl, South Normanton, Alfreton DE55 2BNGood staff but store is unorganised ie trouble finding rx's is very busy with walk ins can quickly get backlogged.
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.

Well120 Dib Ln, Leeds LS8 3AYVery poor . I had 1 staff with me in the dispensary who was overworked, with queries , serving , dispensing and stock to put away . And had 2 staff doing rosettes who informed me that they were doing desserts on the day to go out as they were massively behind. Every dossete had some major issues with and had to be sent back. 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.

Not a very good experience and can only get worse the accumulation of work load

Well276 Manchester Rd, WarringtonGreat branch and support staff
WellThe Baths Health & Wellbeing Centre, Legh St, Warrington WA1 1UGTHe branch is very badly run. It dos only out of hours emergency and is attached to an out of hours GP and dentist center so from the time it opens you have a constant flow of patients but you only have a dispenser for half a day and you are expected to work on your own, cash up at the end of the day, enter the end of day figures and lock up by yourself. 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!

BootsLocking CastleAwful 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.

Day LewisGrimsby Springfield medical Centre 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.
Boots8 Whiteladies Road, Clifton Down Shopping Centre, BristolStaff 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.
LloydspharmacyWednesburyThe staff were helpful enough but nobody knew much about the back office system to claim payment
BootsPeel Centre Yeovil Midnight PharmacyThis retail park pharmacy has a big medisure business upstairs but there is only generally one pharmacist in store at a time. There are dozens of nursing homes and the phone is constantly ringing. Downstairs nobody seems to know what they are doing
BootsTruro Pydar StreetThis city centre pharmacy has a massive Medisure business upstairs but there is only generally one pharmacist in store at a time. There are dozens of nursing homes and the phone is constantly ringing. Downstairs nobody seems to know what they are doing as the staff are inexperienced and the store manager is a liability in the dispensary
AsdaWestbrookFeedback 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!

SuperdrugBridlingtonIt’s not the best place to work . Not allowed your phone . You are searched but yet left alone to run counter snd dispensary
Northwood, Brereton, Staffordshire BreretonThis 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
BootsBoots Church Street CannockHorrible branch, poorly organised, lots of metha patients
Bootsnewton aycliffeWas 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
Nevison PharmacyOrchard lane, PontefractVery awful branch, always self-checking and no help from the pharmacy owners who are only interested in saving money. It takes them ages to pay you and they won't pick up their phones when you try and contact them regarding payment. Locums should AVOID at all costs.

BootsBoots Fore Street ChardIt’s always a bad sign if you phone the branch at 9am and nobody answers. The phone is left unanswered most of the day. The pharmacy is very, very busy and not enough staff and they are all stressed. Staff are too busy to answer questions from locum. The resident pharmacist is leaving. The whole area is short of pharmacists which is hardly surprising
BootsThe Peel Centre, Yeovil, Somerset This 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
LloydspharmacyPaultonVery busy and chaotic store . Once i had to shut down due to lack of staff. So infamous it was in local news paper i was told by staff
ScorahCheadle HulmeGreat pharmacy. The manager is back and has organised the flow correctly and staff know what they are doing. Really good for a locum.
WellMoor Street, Kirkham 222566Branch is generally quite nice. Workload isn't too high. Maybe 5 blue Rx.
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

BootsLichfield 0181Excellent to work in as second pharmacist checking blister packs. Horribly busy main dispensary. Constant checking of baskets. Lots of patients seeking advice. Unsafe having just one pharmacist in dispensary.
