Health Education England (HEE) wants to focus on improving pre-reg training, as there is “variation in terms of trainer, training satisfaction, and registration rates”, the organisation's head of pharmacy for London and the south-east told delegates of a pharmacy seminar in London yesterday (January 16). Gail Fleming stressed the need to bring “quality into the programme, and quality during the programme”, and said HEE is “focusing on different tools to ensure the quality of that training”.
The C+D Award-winning project – Capture AF – originally involved 10 community pharmacies in Hillingdon, London and the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust’s specialist arrhythmia care team. The pharmacists involved tested 600 patients for AF over a six-month period in 2016. Sally Manning, lead arrhythmia pharmacist at the trust, told C+D last week (January 10) that the scheme has been awarded £100,000 to expand and reach more patients.
According to a sign in the window (see below) of Lloydspharmacy on Hursely Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire, “from January, this pharmacy will no longer be operated by Lloydspharmacy”. “Normal service will continue under new ownership,” the sign says. The Eastleigh branch is one of the 190 “commercially unviable” branches in England that Lloydspharmacy's parent company Celesio UK has earmarked for closure or sale.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
