The Profession

An interesting, rewarding job

From Mr S. Vohra, MRPharmS

I am fed up of reading letters from disgruntled pharmacists like John Macmillan (PJ, 13 April, p495).

Not only are these letters instrumental in reducing the morale of the profession but they also have the effect of reducing undergraduates, preregistration trainees and new pharmacists to a state of gloom and doom about their chosen profession before they have had time fully to experience it for themselves. They also project an image of pharmacists as moaners and groaners who appear to be totally paralysed with regards to their own professional fate.

I have only this to say to these "colleagues" of mine: either put up and shut up or walk away. This is a free and democratic country; no one is forcing them to work where conditions are not to their liking.

It is about time that pharmacists who do not like what they do waved goodbye to the rest of us and walked out of the door never to look back. This will at least allow us to get on with a job that is highly interesting and rewarding.
