Welcome to the March 2018 newsletter. I hope everyone is looking forward to Easter. It may seem early in the piece but with the “flu season the next “big” thing to be thinking about this newsletter will discuss the issues surrounding the vaccination and signs and symptoms of flu. I remember working as a locum pharmacist in the community when I was greeted by a customer wanting something for the “flu. My first question was to ask “Who has the “flu?” and the indignant reply was “I do”. If any of you have been unfortunate enough to have been struck down with the “flu” you will know that the last place you would want to be is standing in a pharmacy!
