Locum Chronicles

  • It is impossible to be prepared for everything! There’s always a joker to trump anything you have ever experienced and the community pharmacy experience is no exception. It was a lovely day at work and I was having a great time as the newest pharmacist in the building; especially considering the fact that just two days before, I had set a new record of the highest daily sales ever made by a locum pharmacist in their first week.

exciting place to belong.

I have very high expectations for Pharmacy Hub. I have always imagined the possibility of having a forum exclusive to pharmacists alone. This should be pretty interesting.
