How do we do it?

The Ulster Chemists’ Association held a Special General Meeting on 24th January at their offices on Holywood Road, Belfast, to consult members on a proposal to change the structure of the association to facilitate a closer working relationship with Community Pharmacy NI.

'Addiction NI's annual Race to Recovery took place in Ormeau Park on Sunday 11th March. Despite the "Beast from the East" causing a week's postponement it did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the 300 walkers and runners who participated in the run. Runners of all ages and abilities pulled on their trainers, pushed their prams and walked their dogs to raise awareness and much needed funds for Addiction NI.

 

Community pharmacy is experiencing an alarming rise in aggressive and violent incidents. The worst incident involved two pharmacists (both UCA Executive Committee members) being stabbed in a pharmacy in West Belfast.

 

UCA surveyed its members who told us about their experiences which can be summarised as follows:

 

·         Aggressive and rude behaviour from patients on a daily basis

·         Violent incidents/attempted robberies in the past year

·         Attempted/robberies increasingly involving knives or guns

The Ulster Chemist's Association is urging Locum Pharmacists to come forward and register with the UCA Locum Online.

With over 200 member pharmacist, we have regular requests for temporary cover and often recieve requests from non-member pharmacies as well as other healthboards.

 

Opportunities arise on occassion for both full time and part time permenant positions as well as long term, temporary contracts.

 

For UCA members, the strategic plan is available in the Doc Store.

If you would like to know more about this, please contact UCA Secretary, Adrienne Clugston.
