Dear All Pharmacists – On privacy and trust

23 Sep



I was so upset yesterday about a breach of my privacy at a pharmacy (not the first one) that I ranted on twitter – and it seemed it struck a chord with other patients. Pharmacists who responded were horrified by the breaches discussed. The conversation continued on twitter all day yesterday, and continued into today. I’ve captured all the tweets in the links below (“All tweets”), and have curated too:

    Holy hell, what a horrific experience. It’s outrageous that privacy breeches like that should happen so often, for both mental and physical meds.
    My pharmacy is a Rowlands, and I’m so lucky that the women working in there are just angels. So helpful and friendly. Not a bad word to say about the service. I’m so sorry you had to deal with that – patient confidentiality and safety are lessons that should cemented in new dispensers’ minds on day one of the job, no exceptions!

    That sounds absolutely horrifying. I cannot believe you had to deal with that.
    I suffered really badly with PND and anxiety.
    my story is here;… I wish I had of seen your post when I was going through it because it would have helped me so much. xxxxx
