pharmacy wont serve woman without mask due to nose surgery

A mother was left in tears when pharmacy staff would not serve her while she was trying to get painkillers after surgery to reattach her nose.

Shereen Mawson said an employee at her local Catts Pharmacy Snodland, Kent, which is run by Paydens, shouted at her for not wearing a face mask. 

But it is too painful for the 36-year-old to wear a mask after a dog attack left her with the cartilage from her nose hanging off and extremely painful injuries to her face.

Miss Mawson said she tried to explain why she was exempt from wearing a face mask but the employee would not listen. 

She said: ‘My stitches are so visible and she was just so rude I couldn’t believe it.

‘She went to her manager and he also refused to let me in but he didn’t even come and see me.

‘Then the member of staff said she could serve me outside and I said: “Okay that’s absolutely fine”.

‘When she found out I was paying by card she then refused me again and at that point I became so overwhelmed I literally bawled my eyes out.

‘I was in tears and ended up having a panic attack outside because I was so embarrassed.’

Thankfully a different nearby pharmacy agreed to serve her and she was able to get her painkillers.   

Miss Mawson added: ‘Given what my nose looks like at the minute I didn’t really want to go out in the first place but I was in so much pain I had to.

‘I’m a quiet person and I have serious anxiety so for that to happen it really knocked my confidence.

‘I wish I could wear a face mask because I understand how important they are but I physically can’t have any pressure on it, even the wind blowing on it is quite painful.

‘I have to be extremely careful where the hole in the stitching goes, any kind of cloth could have pulled it all off. 

‘Even the wind means I have to cover my face with my hand when I walk.’ 

 ‘I’ve not left my house since that Wednesday. 

‘I’ve been sending the kids out to do stuff and even just going to the shops to get food I’m hesitant and would rather wait until someone comes to help me.’  

The dog attack happened two weeks ago when her friend’s dog was being attacked by another dog and she was helping to clean her friend’s dog’s wounds. 

She said: ‘My friend’s dog had been attacked by another dog which wasn’t on its lead so I ran over to help my friend clean his wounds and that’s when it happened.

‘As I tilted his head to look at the puncture wound I must have hurt him and he bit out.

Miss Mawson, who runs a horse livery yard and rescues animals for a living, said she did want the dog to be put down. 

‘I’ve known that dog for years and know he didn’t do it on purpose, it was just a quick snap reaction,’ she said.  

A Paydens spokesperson said: ‘Catts Pharmacy are sorry this customer found our service unsatisfactory, in these unprecedented times our front line staff are working extremely hard to do their best for all our patients.

‘Whilst there are exemptions from wearing face coverings for certain individuals, our company policy advises staff that any customer not wearing a face covering, whether exempt or not, should be politely asked to wait outside the premises and we will attend to them at the door.

‘The reason for this is that despite being exempt from wearing a face covering, we need to protect our staff and other members of the public using our pharmacies.

‘Many of the customers visiting pharmacies are vulnerable and need to feel safe whilst in enclosed spaces, and in particular, in healthcare environments. Face coverings are mainly intended to protect others, not the wearer, from coronavirus.

‘Our initial investigations into the complaint so far have highlighted a difference in the way this event has been reported and the pharmacy refute any claims that they were rude to the patient.’

This Morning star Schofield, 58, was seen leaving the large semi-detached property in Chiswick today with co-presenter and close friend Holly Willoughby.

The pair emerged from the house on their bicycles to set off for a leisurely ride in bright afternoon sunshine. 

The house, just a stone’s throw from The Thames, is close to his ITV colleague Declan Donnelly’s home and Ant McPartlin’s former home he shared with Lisa Armstrong.

Donning a cycling helmet today, the presenter was dressed in a tee-shirt and cycling shorts with his co-host in a grey tee shirt and black leggings. 

Neighbours told MailOnline that they had regularly seen the presenter around the area since moving in around two weeks ago. 

He has also been frequenting pubs along the River Thames, which just lies a short distance from his new home.

Locals said that Schofield is seen more on foot or bike than in his luxury Jaguar sports car which has a private number plate and is parked on the forecourt of his new home.

One neighbour said: ‘It’s caused quite a stir since he’s moved in and got people very excited. He seems like a very nice man and quite normal. You see him walking or cycling mainly and he smiles every time he goes past.’

Another neighbour added: ‘There’s quite a few famous people already living around here so Phillip Schofield moving in is not a big deal. A lot of people have been talking about it, but nobody bothers him. He’s a lovely bloke and I’m sure he’ll enjoy living in our community.

The news of the move follows a tumultuous few months for one of Britain’s most popular TV faces, following his tearful on-air ‘coming out’ on live television in February.

He is said to be keen to keep his divorce from wife of 27 years Steph as amicable as possible and maintain a good relationship with his daughters.

As well as his new property in Chiswick, he is building an annexe at the family home in Oxfordshire. 

The new house on a wide residential road boasts a magnificent open-plan kitchen, three receptions, six bedrooms and a converted basement.

MailOnline understands he bought from a family who were moving to New Zealand and put the property on the market about a year ago for £2 million.

His TV pals will be close at hand, with Willoughby living just across the river in Barnes and Dec down the road.

Schofield’s first home with Steph before they married was also in Chiswick, which might also explain the move.

They met when he was 25 and had just landed a job on the BBC’s flagship Saturday morning show, Going Live, and she was a researcher.

The young couple moved in the leafy west London suburb, and married six years later.

He reportedly told a friend that he had known ‘within three weeks’ that Steph was the woman he was going to marry, and that they were deeply infatuated with each other in the early days.  

This week, Schofield’s net worth was revealed to have topped £9m, increasing by £800,000 in the last year alone, thanks in part to a £60,000 deal making him the face of a gin advent calendar and his new tell-all autobiography, Life’s What You Make It comes out next month.

As co-director of his company, Steph is likely to be entitled to half of everything, but the couple are determined to remain friends.

A source told The Sun: ‘Phillip and Steph have had a lot of hard, painful conversations over the past ten months but remain as tight and devoted to one another as ever. 

‘Steph is entitled to half. He is not disputing this — all he wants in return is her ongoing loyalty . . . and discretion, his family is his number one priority and that will never change.’

The couple co-own a plush £2.5 million country pile in Henley-on-Thames, which has been the family home for many years with their two grown-up daughters, Ruby and Mollie.   

The TV star also owns an incredible holiday home in Portugal, in the Algarve and offers stunning views across the Portuguese hills.

Naturally, the villa has a private swimming pool and perfectly manicured lawns, as well as a number of al-fresco eating spots.

In September it was revealed that Phil more than doubled his salary in a year, from £803,000 to £1.73 million.

The £927,000 rise for the ITV host was revealed in newly published accounts and was largely due to Dancing On Ice’s return in January last year.

In February, Schofield — who made his name with Gordon the Gopher on BBC’s Broom Cupboard — stunned viewers when he revealed he was gay.

He said he had wrestled with the decision, adding: ‘You never know what’s going on in someone’s seemingly perfect life.

‘So you won’t know what has been consuming me for the last few years.’

Schofield’s agent was contacted for comment.

Entrepreneur LOSES Court of Appeal bid to overturn ruling that handed his ex-wife millions

entrepreneur loses court of appeal bid to overturn ruling that handed his ex wife millions

An entrepreneur who moved a Playboy model into the luxury flat he shared with his ex-wife during their messy divorce has lost a bid to take a larger slice of their fortune.

Richard Rothschild, 45, was last year handed just £26,000, which he claims left him ‘penniless’ compared to the millions awarded to 46-year-old Charmaine de Souza.

Ms de Souza was given £1.73million – 95 per cent of the family wealth – as well as their £2.3million Miami condo.

Claiming the ruling was ‘unfair’ and left him with ‘in effect no capital at all and no income’, Mr Rothschild challenged the decision.

But a judge today threw out his appeal and upheld the original ruling, which split the money so unevenly because of Mr Rothschild’s actions and rampant spending on legal bills during their divorce.

The court heard that the couple had enjoyed a ‘very good’ lifestyle together – Mr Rothschild drove a Lamborghini and they also enjoyed the expensive condo in an exclusive Miami Beach apartment block.

They had met as students in 2005 and managed a successful London telecoms firm together.

But following their split in 2016, they clashed in court two years later when Mr Rothschild moved his then girlfriend, Playboy model Sherra Michelle, into the couple’s apartment.

It prompted a bid by Ms de Souza to get him jailed for contempt of court and saw Mr Rothschild run up over £1million in legal bills during their divorce.

In December last year, Mr Justice Cohen scolded Mr Rothschild for pursuing the ‘most destructive litigation’.

He said the entrepreneur had ‘brought it [the ruling] on himself’ because of the ‘huge and unnecessary haemorrhage of money to pay for this litigation’. 

Lord Justice Moylan today upheld the December order, claiming it had been ‘just’ and ‘fair’.

The appeal judge said the wife had set out numerous ways in which her ex-husband’s conduct had ‘impacted adversely on the financial circumstances of the family,’ diminishing what was left to divide up.

It included ‘deliberate and wanton’ overspending, ‘destructive behaviour’ which reduced the value of their fortune and his ‘sustained refusal to participate appropriately’ in the court case by bringing hopeless applications and failing to comply with orders, ‘needlessly increasing costs by a vast amount.’

Lord Justice Moylan added that ‘the husband acknowledged that the impact of the breakdown of the marriage had caused him “to stray from the path of reason and, occasionally, focus upon peripheral rather than fundamental aspects of the proceedings”.’

He noted that the husband ‘has no current earned income’, adding that he ‘has taken no steps to achieve one,’ although as a natural entrepreneur he is likely to prosper in future.

Ms de Souza had a 21-year relationship with Mr Rothschild after meeting as students, marrying in 2005

He said Mr Justice Cohen had described the husband’s lifestyle after the split as ‘extraordinary.’ 

Mr Rothschild had ‘spent the time travelling the world’ and claimed that it was in the family’s financial interest that, instead of trying to earn money, it was better that ‘he preserves his non-domiciled tax status and lives a life of luxury on the back of the Airmiles’.

‘The judge noted that it was ‘hard to follow the logic’,’ Lord Justice Moylan added.

Quoting Mr Justice Cohen, he said: ‘It is obvious that this has been the most destructive litigation. There is no avoiding the fact that the husband is very largely responsible for the situation that has arisen.

‘Since the breakdown of the marriage, he has acted destructively and throughout the litigation without any regard to the normal rules… the husband has brought this upon himself.’

For the husband, Patrick Chamberlayne QC argued that the ‘central problem’ with the divorce ruling was that Mr Justice Cohen had made it clear that he was not taking Mr Rothschild’s conduct into account and was basing his decision on the former couple’s financial needs.

However, the judge must have taken the husband’s behaviour into account, because that would be the only way to explain such an equal split of the couple’s wealth, he said.

Dismissing the appeal, Lord Justice Moylan said: ‘It is plain…that the judge was entitled to take the husband’s litigation conduct into account.

‘The amount spent on legal costs would have been a modest fraction of this but for the husband’s conduct.

‘I do not accept Mr Chamberlayne’s submission that the disparity in outcome cannot be justified in this case.

‘I do not accept that conduct cannot lead to a party receiving less than their needs. It plainly can be justified.

‘The judge was entitled to conclude that the resources allocated to the wife were no more than sufficient to meet her needs both in the short term and the long term.

‘He was equally entitled to conclude that the amount allocated to the husband, also taking into account the husband’s prospects, and the other material factors such as his conduct, was a just proportion of the assets and was sufficient to meet his needs at a level which was fair to him in the circumstances of this case.’

Dismissing the appeal, Lord Justice Moylan also upheld a previous ruling that a £610,000 debt owed to Mr Rothschild’s mum, Wanda, was unlikely to be enforced by her.

‘The disparity between the parties is, therefore, not as great as that suggested by Mr Chamberlayne,’ he said.

Lord Justice Newey and Lord Justice Patten agreed with Lord Justice Moylan’s ruling and the appeal was dismissed.
