Aim RX Ltd Appleton 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.
Aim Rx Ltd Sorrel Bank Chemist, M6 7HL, Salford Very busy but extremely well organised and has brilliant staff who stick to their roles to ensure it is run smoothly
Ali’s Pharmacy 93 Watney St, Shadwell, London E1 2QE
Asda Woodchurch Rd, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 5PD This is a good branch and I would recommend
Asda Surtees Rd, Peterlee SR8 5HA Staff 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.
Asda Walney Rd, Barrow-in-Furness LA14 5UG Good
Asda Whinbush Way, Darlington DL1 3RB On 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 0XR Always 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.
Asda Old Potts Way, Shrewsbury SY3 7ET Good extremely busy
Asda Woodchurch Rd, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 5PD Lovely branch with welcoming and hard working staff
Asda Malinsgate, Telford TF3 4HZ
Asda Howley Park Rd, Morley, Leeds LS27 0BP No dispensers, manager keeps dispenser hours for himself
Asda Woodchurch Rd, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 5PD Really nice branch. the staff are lovely but some of them are inexperienced which is when you may need to help with the labelling/dispensing. But it’s a quiet store most of the time
Ash grove pharmacy 31 England Ln, Knottingley WF11 0JA
Ash Grove pharmacy 31 England Ln, Knottingley WF11 0JA The 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.
Belstead Hills Pharmacy 310 Sheldrake Drive, Ipswich, Suffolk , , IP2 9LF Cut staff to the bone.. but good staff
Biddulph Pharmacy 1-3 Tunstall Rd, Biddulph, Stoke-on-Trent ST8 6HJ Staff were very helpful and understanding.
Boots Oxford Retail Park OX4 6XJ This 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.
Boots 750 Bristol Rd S, Birmingham B31 2NN
Boots 26-30 George St, Bathgate EH48 1PW Very 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
Boots 19-20 Broadway, Catterick Garrison DL9 4RF
Boots 49-53 High St, Dundee DD1 1UE It 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.
Boots Malvern Retail Park, Roman Way, Malvern WR14 1JQ One 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 32 High St, Cheadle SK8 1AL Avoid BTC Cheadle, nightmare to work in, with very small dispensery, dispenser was nice but very clearly overwhelmed
Boots 94 Pydar St, Truro TR1 2BD Not enough experienced staff to do the job and phone constantly ringing
Boots 5 Ryemarket, Stourbridge DY8 1HJ No 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
Boots 1 Dukes Walk Service Rd, Waterlooville PO7 7HS I worked all day without a dispenser!! Very unsafe
Boots 45 East St, Blandford Forum DT11 7DX Inadequately trained staff and not enough staff. Poorly organised. Way behind on dispensing. Area manager ignorant and doesn’t care except for targets
Boots Frodsham, WA6 6RX Branch 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.
Boots Gallagher Retail Park, Axletree Way, Wednesbury WS10 9QY
Boots 1952 Decent
Boots The Gerard Centre, Gerard St, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan WN4 9AN very nice staff and polite and helpful manager. workload very high, always behind, constant checking. pushed to do MURs

Boots 3-4 South Terrace, Union Square Shopping Park, Guild St, Aberdeen AB11 5PF Busy enough to keep you going. Alot of sales to do and methadone
Boots 102 New St, West Midlands, Birmingham B2 4HQ Easy branch to work in. A lot of methadones but they are made up already.
Boots Ventura Park Rd, Tamworth B78 3JD A moderately busy pharmacy. You have a full set of staff up till final hour when you don’t and have to self check.
Boots 5-7 Church St, Oswestry SY11 2SU I would go back again.
Boots 121-125 Holton Rd, Barry CF63 4SW
Boots Lupset Medical Centre, WF2 8FE Very busy branch but double cover and enough staff to deal with workload
Boots Cleveland Retail Park, TS6 6UX Not enough staff to cope with the workload of the amount of customers coming into the store
Boots Mill Gate Shopping Centre Bury BL9 0QQ Extremely 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
Boots 20-21 High St, Newtown SY16 2NU Busy branch! Great staff!

Boots 36 Queen St, Cardiff CF10 2RG
Boots 125 High St, Bath BA1 4DF Duck 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.
Boots 72 Poole Rd, Bournemouth BH4 9DZ Very friendly staff. Quite quiet. OTC queries are managed by health care staff. Very few walk ins. Methadones are pre-made. 1 hour lunch break.
Boots Yate Shopping Centre, 21 W Walk, Yate, Bristol BS37 4AX Usually 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
Boots 5 Hollin Park Pde, Leeds LS8 3AS
Boots 37 Tanglewood Way, Chalford, Bussage, Stroud GL6 8DE Busy but manageable branch, staff are great and manager is nice.

Boots TrowbridgeThe Shires Gateway, 32 – 33 Bythesea Rd, Trowbridge BA14 8FZ
Boots Lymington high st, SO41 9AN The 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.
Boots Regent Rd, Ordsall Ln, Salford M5 3TP Staff 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.
Boots 5 Ryemarket, Stourbridge DY8 1HJ No counter staff. Customers shouting at colleagues in dispensary to get served on chemist counter. Many, many methadone addicts.
Nobody bothered to process my invoice so got paid late. Never go back
Boots Chester Rd, Broughton, Bretton, Chester CH4 0DP I liked this branch. I would say 7/10
Boots 3-5 The Rake, Birkenhead, Wirral CH62 7AD generally 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.

Nice holiday town branch. Kept going but organised with plenty of staff.
Boots 24 New Market St, Chorley PR7 1DE Branch manager had unrealistic expectations when there was no staff. To tons of checking that was left. Cd balance, to clincal check all the next week blister packs and then to make up the methadone all with just one other staff in store.
Boots 16-17 Broad St, Welshpool SY21 7SD Good

Cohens Chemist 8-10 Ashley Rd, Altrincham WA14 2DW very polite and helpful staff
Cohens Chemist Northgate, Pontefract WF8 1HJ The 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 Chemist 371 Whalley New Rd, Blackburn BB1 9SP Branch was very busy but this was due to being badly understaffed. Staff were very good generally and helpful but had combination of trainee and qualified staff doing the work of 3/4 dispensers
Cohens Chemist West End Medical Centre, Conway Rd, Colwyn Bay LL29 7LS Not enough staff. The dosette boxes are being checked on the day in some cases. Neither of the two dispensers wanted to come and serve on the counter, which was right in front of where I was checking. This meant that I had to keep going to the counter as I kept getting interrupted whilst checking.

Cohens Chemist 62 Rawlinson Street, Barrow in Furness, CUMBRIA, LA14 2DN Good, friendly staff

Midcounties Cooperative Pharmacy Harden Good branch
Day Lewis 474 Finchampstead road, RG40 3RG They 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 Lewis 6 Gillett road, BH12 5BF Pleasant 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 Lewis 17 Adelaide road, Andover, SP10 1HF Very 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 Lewis 1 Denmark St, Darlington DL3 0LP Busy well organised but recently more and more understaffed
Day Lewis 1-3 Beattyville Gardens, Ilford IG6 1JN Not very great
Day Lewis Newton Place pharmacy, ME13 8FH In 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 Lewis 7 the parade, RH19 1QL 2 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 Lewis 12 Orion parade, Hassocks, BN6 8QA Very good staffing level. Well-trained staffs. Overall a pleasant experience.
Day Lewis 1 Alpine Court, Park Road, Petersfield , Hampshire, GU32 3FB Had a well trained counter asst and a dispenser for this half day Saturday shift. Well managed branch.
Day Lewis The Forge, London Rd, Warrington WA4 6HJ Some 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
Day Lewis 1 Alpine Court, Park Road, Petersfield , Hampshire, GU32 3FB Appallingly 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….
Eastfield pharmacy Manchester Road, CW97QB Friendliest staff, great owners, amazing people to work for. I’m always very well looked after, get paid on the same day. Support is always there when I need it. Never had any issues/complaints.

Lancewise Lancewise pharmacy, 0001, 2a lane ends road, manchetser, m19 1wa Generally an okay branch. The staff are kind and helpful and workload is manageable for 1 pharmacist. They do blister packs. No methadone. 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.
Leftwich Pharmacy 67 Clifton Dr, Northwich CW9 8BQ Delayed payments. Have to keep chasing up and owner gives you false promises. Confirm payment terms first before booking

Lloydspharmacy 34 John St, Penicuik EH26 8AB Recently 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.

Lloydspharmacy Middlewich Rd, Nantwich CW5 6PH Good branch but staff can be lazy and inefficient. Higher workload for evening pharmacist.
Lloydspharmacy Whitwick Rd, Coalville LE67 3FA Lloyds 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.
Lloydspharmacy Lower Hillmorton Rd, Rugby CV21 3AQ Was 2 full time staff short. Spent day clearing work from previous days.
Lloydspharmacy 531 Tong Rd, Leeds LS12 5AT Decent Decent
Lloydspharmacy 24 Market Pl, Malton YO17 7LX The 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.
Lloydspharmacy 7 Burford Rd, Carterton OX18 3AG Too much work left behind from previous week, loads of queries, a couple of Clinical errors undiagnosed and Not queried by regular pharmacist.

Lloydspharmacy 43 Long St, Wotton-under-Edge GL12 7BX It is a busy branch with nice staff
Lloydspharmacy 123 Knaresborough Rd, Harrogate HG2 7LY Generally 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.

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.

Lloydspharmacy 150 Victoria Rd, Darlington DL1 5JG Lovely staff, very steady workload, nice branch to work in
Lloydspharmacy 150 Victoria Rd, Darlington DL1 5JG With 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.

Lloydspharmacy 9 Badsley Moor Lane, Rotherham, S65 2QN Please 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.
Lloydspharmacy Caen St, Braunton EX33 1AA Really 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.

Lloydspharmacy 55A Pennywell Rd, Edinburgh EH4 4TY
Lloydspharmacy Greenway Centre & Cafe, Doncaster Rd, Southmead, Bristol BS10 5PY Dispenser/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.
Lloydspharmacy Fenton Health Centre, Glebedale Rd, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 3AQ Very bad staffing
Lloydspharmacy 304 Marfleet Ln, Hull HU9 5AQ Steady branch well staffed, helpful staff
Lloydspharmacy High St, Flamborough, Bridlington YO15 1JX Good branch, manager is a dispenser who likes to tell you what to do… nice person though.
Lloydspharmacy 1 Station Rd S, Padgate, Warrington WA2 0PD Decent branch. Staff are fairly new so they are under trained.

Lots of walk ins due to surgery across road but not enough staff (although they are lovely)

Cramped space

Lloydspharmacy 518 Hagley Rd W, Birmingham, Oldbury B68 0BZ No dispenser all day
Lloydspharmacy 66 Middlewich Rd, Northwich CW9 7DA Busy 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.
Lloydspharmacy 56 Cowgate, Kirkintilloch, Glasgow G66 1HN Really good Saturday staff. Felt a bit much is left for them but nothing dangerously so.
Lloydspharmacy LloydsPharmacy, 56 Edinburgh Pl, Cheltenham GL51 7SA, UK Branch fairly organised, somewhat pressured into performing murs despite workload. Generally speaking a good but fairly busy day.
Lloydspharmacy Ardington Rd, Northampton NN1 5LT Only 1 or 2 blue Rx. Too many walk ins. Had to stay an extra 20mins as too many people in shop still waiting for Rx to be made up and checked.
Lloydspharmacy 181 Wednesfield Rd, Wolverhampton WV10 0EN Behind on workload. Very short staffed. Under new management and staff are now leaving
Lloydspharmacy 1-5 Westgate, Bridlington YO16 4QF Understaffed 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.
Lloydspharmacy Foxes road, Newport, PO30 5ZB Overall 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.
Lloydspharmacy Arrowe Park Hospital, Arrowe Park Rd, Birkenhead, Wirral CH49 5PE Good branch. Free parking at hospital. Not too busy. Staff are great. Would definitely work here again but only at £30+
Lloydspharmacy Kings Parade, King St, Cottingham HU16 5QQ Manager 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
Lloydspharmacy 35 Main St, Gorebridge EH23 4BX
Lloydspharmacy 1 Station Rd, Kendal LA9 6RY
Lloydspharmacy 8 Blandford Pl, Seaham SR7 7EL Quite 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.

Lloydspharmacy Sainsburys, Haycocks Rd, Haverhill CB9 7YL Decent store. It felt like the regular staff didn’t want to do much considering they had a back log.
Lloydspharmacy 13 Alma Park Rd, Grantham NG31 9SX 4hrs shift
Lloydspharmacy Lloyds, 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.
Lloydspharmacy 29 Derby St, Stoke on Trent, ST1 3LE Branch can get busy, pharmacy not very organised and messy thus increased pressure on staff
Lloydspharmacy 12-13 Mid Kent shopping centre, ME16 0PU Well-staffed but a bit mis-managed since the pharmacist manager left a month or 2 ago. A couple of days behind on their dispensing.
Lloydspharmacy Silksworth Ln, Sunderland SR3 1PD There 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.
Lloydspharmacy The Forge Shopping Centre, Stockton Heath, Warrington WA4 6HN Branch super busy, needs another pharmacist to help with care homes (already another pharmacist upstairs). Not many walk ins but expected to check care homes. Mistakes easily being made by pharmacist and staff members.
Lloydspharmacy 11 Wharf Rd, Ash Vale, Aldershot GU12 5AZ Extremely 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
Lloydspharmacy 7017 100+ methadone patients
Lloydspharmacy 29 Wynyard Rd, Hartlepool TS25 3LB Dispenser manager got too paly, didnt know my name so referred to me as oi, not well recieved naturally, work load is too much, shop is chaotic, baskets all over the floor, constant stream of work, if I didnt negotiate the rate wouldnt be worth it at all. Would not probably go back.

Lloydspharmacy Kimberworth Park Medical Centre, Langdon Rd, Rotherham S61 3QH
Lloydspharmacy 121 Swindon Rd, Cheltenham GL50 4DP Good branch. Staff know what they are doing. No methadones. Busy branch though. Have to be used to high volumes

Rowlands 1006
Rowlands Bevan Way, Sheffield, S35 1RN Workload is very high, staff constantly download prescriptions and dispense them, you don’t get much of a chance to catch up.
Rowlands 1 The Cobbles, Station Street, Meltham, HD9 5QQ Staff 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.
Rowlands 1 Salop Street, Daybrook, Nottingham, NG5 6HP One worrying thing about this branch: staff tried signing patient up to NMS even though they’d had it before (a while ago). When confronted about this she said her pharmacy manager tells them to do this.

Rowlands 27 John St, Penicuik EH26 8HN
Rowlands 66 Richard moon street Crewe cw1 3ax The branch is very busy . Not enough staff, had 2 locum dispensers in and even with 2 pharmacists still busy and ppl queuing out the door at times. Old manager left the branch messy eg No CD balance checks done in the previous 6months. Wasnt happy with the rate considering the workload. Area manager came one day but did not rectify the CD registers. Pharmacist also needs to be accredited / validated in doing pill pouch- have to get login details for moodle which takes forever to come and therefore a weekly issue ln the mean time
Rowlands 19 Hunter St, East Kilbride, Glasgow G74 4LZ Organised branch
Rowlands 1 Henley Ave, Oxford OX4 4DH Two weeks behind and no manager
Rowlands Queens Buildings, 6, Queensferry Rd, Rosyth KY11 2RA Busy, counter staff was lovely. One of the dispensers was a bit off
Rowlands 9 Hairst St, Renfrew PA4 8QU Only two members of staff on duty with only one member in the dispensary who was a student who didn’t know the PMR fully. Over lunch it left me on my own in the dispensary for two hours.

Not all the work left was able to be completed as it was a bank holiday weekend so I had several emergency supply consultations. Other professional services took time too.

Shires Pharmacies 150A White Ln, Sheffield S12 3GH Busy but organised
Smart Pharm Ltd Harrow Road Br NW107SU ordering system complicated. Branch and hub dispensing- I had to check all
Superdrug 18a Westmorland Shopping Centre, Kendal LA9 4LR Nice 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.

Tesco Penrhos Industrial Estate, Penrhos, Holyhead LL65 2UH
Tesco St. Oswalds St, Liverpool L13 2BY Started 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 !

Tesco Long Causeway, Farnworth, Bolton BL4 9LS This store leaves the locum without staff from either 5pm or 7pm till 1030 and the locum is expected to self dispense and check, and also deal with queries and till purchases alone. Not doable for locum with little experience working for tescos

Tesco Gateford Road, Worksop, S81 7AP They 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.

Tesco Askham Bar, Tadcaster Road, York YO24 1LW
Tesco Woodfield Retail Park, Peel Way, Bury BL9 5BY This branch can be enjoyable to work in at times depending on who is working there however some of the staff members can be extremely slow with dispensing and dealing with customers which leaves the pharmacist needing to label, occasionally dispense and serve on tills

Well 9 Market Pl, South Normanton, Alfreton DE55 2BN Good staff but store is unorganised ie trouble finding rx’s is very busy with walk ins can quickly get backlogged.
Well Lovely Ln, Warrington WA5 1QG Not 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.

Well 120 Dib Ln, Leeds LS8 3AY Very 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
