    Should Mystery Shoppers be part of ongoing QCPP?
    I get rate migraines, was after a replacement for a recent attack where sumatriptan was totally appropriate.
    CW. Discount price does it include discount advice?
    I’m retired but try to keep up with therapeutics and when I got a migraine earlier this week I asked at a CW what they had.
    (I was thinking about S3 sumatriptan)
    Only panadeine
    Are you a pharmacist?
    No a student. No offer to get one. I asked for one and requested “Imigran”
    No you need a prescription
    Not now.
    Yes you do
    You might check…
    You were right take this to the cashier
    No label?
    Don’t need one.
    (An address label is required)
    Cashier scanned it; you need a pharmacist.
    Forget about it.

    Next day at another local pharmacy the pharmacist did a perfect interview, asking informed questions along with a personal concern.
