Advice to Community Pharmacists aged 40+

We have recently noticed an unusual increase in the number of cases within community pharmacy involving longer serving pharmacists.

Fri 14th July 2017 The PDA

At the PDA we are constantly advising and supporting members with workplace and professional issues, we support a range of individuals who match the broad demographics of the pharmacy sector.

We have recently noticed an unusual increase in the number of cases within community pharmacy involving longer serving pharmacists who are being called with no notice to meetings with local management, who then raise an alleged performance or conduct issue with them.

Under the guise of a “without prejudice” discussion, the management then offer the alternative of either a disciplinary process or an exit from the business with some small payment of compensation.

We are sending this email to remind members that should you be made aware of a potential disciplinary process concerning your performance or conduct and/or should the management talk to you about providing you with an exit package from the organisation, in any way, you should contact us without delay:
