I WAS sorry to see Gary Johnson, the agreeably modest former governor of New Mexico, and Republican presidential candidate, repeating one of

I was using this pharmacy for quite some time due to its convenient location, but they amply abuse their monopoly of the entire area in order to run the business as badly as they can possibly get away with. In the next door GP surgery I have only heard derogatory comments towards it, and I have now switched to another pharmacy. Not only that, but I will be unlikely to use any other Co-operative services ever again as, in my mind, that brand name is permanently tainted. Essentially: - Medications are never in stock. Never. Not rare, exotic, hard to find drugs, just commonly prescribed ones. - Medications often come in blank boxes containing dozens of cut-out pieces, like confetti left-overs. As the information has been removed, it is not possible to verify the drugs' expiry dates. - There doesn't seem to be any sense of accountability or organisational system. Every prescription needs to be chased, or one will never hear of it again. - The pharmacy in itself is tiny, but not even a perfunctory effort to protect customers' privacy is in place. Full names, addresses, and list of medications are shouted out to customers when handing out prescriptions. - The staff is always - and I mean always - unfriendly, unhelpful, irritated, dismissive, unhappy, confrontational, moody, badly mannered, and blatantly despising being there and having to deal with the clientèle. Customers are routinely not acknowledged, let alone greeted. However, the trophy of infamy should be assigned to their repeat prescription and home delivery service. Inexplicably chaotic and unreliable, every single month I had to spend considerable time across several days trying to ascertain where my medications were. Every single month. After several days of missed deliveries and upon enquiring about my medications, Mr. A. D. (the pharmacist himself), told me that they were doing me a favour, so I should stop bothering them. He also said he didn't want to speak with me because his English wasn't good. Just so you know, that's the person who is handing out your medications at your local pharmacy - good luck with that. I have now decided I would rather spend an extra hour a month to walk to another pharmacy than having to deal with this calibre of uncouth individuals again. Such abysmal customers service isn't easy to achieve, they really ought to win some kind of prize.
