Apologies to any pharmacists ""onboard"" but I was really miffed this morning when I went to pick up my Ventolin Evohaler prescription-after keeping me waiting about 10 mins ,with no one else at the counter,the ""assistant"" then started asking why I had been given 2 refills,how often do I use them,when did I last visit the asthma clinic,how long is it between prescriptions,why do I also get 2 Seretide refills at once??-by now there was about 5 or 6 people all listening in to what I consider ""private"" details and I, afraid I ""lost it"" banging the Â£7 on the counter and demanded the prescription-a swear word may have been used and I felt bad about that-but there is a big difference between ""offering advice"" to a patient and lecturing/hectoring them-are they terrified thy might not be making enough money out of us because we get more than one inhaler at a time???
As Peter Griffin would say ""It really grinds my gears!!
