Well, not much news, except to say that after being repeatedly thwarted by the weather in my intent to go in person (it’s about half hour’s walk away, and not on any of my usual routes), I have finally phoned the pharmacy about the missing tablets.
Not much news but a little that was interesting, shall we say.
Apparently, the pharmacist is no longer on the premises anymore, but has moved to a local doctor’s surgery (not mine, a different one). Could the fact there’s no longer a pharmacist routinely present have anything to do with this?
The lady who took my call is obviously NOT a pharmacist - just counter staff, but she took my call very seriously, agreed it’s a safety issue, and said it’s not acceptable!
She is going to speak to the pharmacist about it, and he will call me tomorrow (would have been today, only I am going out to college shortly, and don’t want to be late because I’m waiting for a call).
But how interesting he’s no longer on the premises, eh? Does that make it more likely to be pilfering, I wonder, because there’s nobody overseeing? Or does it just mean there’s nobody checking - or whoever’s checking isn’t a trained person? Not that you should really need much training to do a visual inspection that drugs are all present and nothing suspicious about their condition.
Watch this space - we’ll see what he says tomorrow. Already feeling a bit anxious, as I feel sure he will try to persuade me I took them myself, and got confused. I’ve asked myself a thousand times if that is possible, but thanks to all those here who said: “Trust your instincts - if you know you didn’t take them, you didn’t take them!”
