About 10 days ago when I went to pick up a prescription re-order,I was asked by the lady serving me if I had a few spare minutes to talk to the ""pharmacist"" about my medication-""No problem"" I replied and was ushered in to the inner sanctum of the pharmacy and was asked several general questions about my use of my medication,was I aware of any ""over the counter"" medicines ?-this ,I thought, was the main reason for the chinwag;to get me to buy more products-but the whole conversation was pleasant enough-now I have received,via the post,a NHS headed 2 part form headed ""Community Pharmacy Medicines Use Review & Prescription Service"" in which a box has been ticked to say I had given ""Oral consent"" to this??-it also has ticked on P2 that I have had no side-effects-to my recollection ,side effects were not even discussed!! Now I know that no harm was done by this ,but why the subtle subterfuge???
