Bumped into a guy yesterday who told me City Sprint have taken over the contract from Lloyd's chemists to fetch prescriptions from care homes. The job involves collecting the prescription.. driving to the chemist.. waiting at the chemist.. driving back to the care home.. Fixed price of £5 for a potential 45 minute 5 mile round trip!

Anyone interested in this profitable business opportunity contact...

There are certain contracts that do the rounds and this is yet another one. Why people fall over themselves to get em god only knows. They take em, soon discover they can't make em work, then someone else comes along and takes over.

If people are so stupid to do these sort of things, then sorry but they don't deserve to earn a decent wage.

Does that mean City Sprint have put their rates up.

Normally 5 miles x 50p = £2-50

Why are we trying to protect people who are not prepared to pay a fare rate?

I do Pharmacy work for the NHS. Its not as easy as it sounds and I won't trust City Sprint with medication.

The driver will probably end up taking any anti depressants he was supposed to be delivering himself just to get away from it all.
