‘Making it happen’ was the appellation for this year’s Sigma Pharmaceuticals conference…which revealed there was actually quite a lot for community pharmacy to make happen if it is to have a future in the NHS.
Some community pharmacies are failing to give customers safety information about over-the-counter medicines including paracetamol and ibuprofen, an investigation by Which? has found. Undercover researchers went into 78 independent and high street pharmacies including Boots, LloydsPharmacy, Tesco, Asda and Morrisons and found that pharmacy staff often did not provide warnings about medicines that could cause harm if not taken properly.
Sue Sharpe, the outgoing chief executive of the PSNC, said the negotiator will press the government to ensure community pharmacy funding reflects not only the sector’s supply function but the services it provides through a new care contract. The PSNC said last month it was intent on achieving a care-focused package of services within the contractual framework and Sharpe (pictured) reiterated that desire during the Sigma conference in Borneo.
@LivEchoLFC It's a redundant question because most Liverpool fans did not see how well they trained and how well they fitted into the team/squad environment. And whether their attitude was good enough. These things were played out behind closed doors. @LFC@thisisanfield@spiritofshankly
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".
