The first cut is the deepest

Mike Smith puts the world to rights… Many of you will remember this great Rod Stewart song. I even used it as the theme of my presentation at the recent Sigma annual conference in Jamaica in February, which was excellent, may I add. The reason that the title of this renowned song is so apt in our industry is because we must ensure that the first cut is the only cut. I fear that the £170 million fee cut for pharmacies in England won’t be the only one, as there are already rumours of far deeper cuts to come.

Fee for service, not free for service

It may be time to think about charging for some of the services that community pharmacy has been offering our customers for free, says Noel Wicks These days everything seems to be about “no frills”, and while some businesses have always had this as a core value, others have had to introduce it simply to compete. One example of this that really sticks out for me is British Airways. This is a company that has, for many years, offered me a comprehensive service in a single inclusive ticket. But now, the advent of competitor low-cost airlines, with their basic ticket prices and premium add-on choices, has forced BA to change its pricing model. The pressures on basic ticket prices in the market mean that BA, too, now offers a standard ticket, but with additional costs for baggage and seat allocation.
