Hyndburn Business Awards 2020
The Hyndburn Business Awards were held online last night. While there were no trophies for the pharmacy this year, our pharmacist was awarded top place for Enterprising Male for his work in the pharmacy, especially during the Covid pandemic. This award is great – but wouldn’t be possible without support. Andrew would like to thank his family and the pharmacy team for all they do in looking after customers, promoting our pharmacy and keeping the place running. We would also like to congratulate all the local businesses who won and were nominated. #smallbusiness

Flu Vaccination
It’s the time of year for the big healthcare push on flu vaccines. For those at risk of complications from flu infection, it is important to get your jab yearly, as the virus can mutate and different strains are used each year to try to maximise immunity in the population. It is especially important this year as we are likely to also have Covid-19 Coronavirus circulating as well as seasonal flu – if a huge flu endemic hits, the NHS would really struggle to cope with those ill from flu as well as Covid. Sadly, this would undoubtedly lead to avoidable deaths in the vulnerable population of society. The NHS recommends flu vaccination for a range of people to try and protect them. Vaccination is recommended for anyone over 65 years old and those with an underlying health problem that puts them

It’s our pharmacy’s 4th birthday on 20th June – it really doesn’t seem that long ago since we first opened our doors to customers. We have come a long way since 2016; increasing our team from 3 to 6, taking on a Care Home contract, compounding our own hand lotions & sanitiser – and of course working through a global pandemic! The whole team would like to thank our wonderful customers both old and new for your ongoing support. As a small business, everyone who uses us for prescriptions, private clinic consultations, vaccinations and so on is making a massive difference to a truly independent pharmacy. Thank you!

Hyndburn Business Awards 2020
We are proud to announce that we are sponsoring the upcoming Hyndburn Business Awards. After we have gained awards the last two years, we thought it would be good to help promote the Business Awards this year. Across the country we bemoan the loss of the typical High Street and Hyndburn is no exception to this. So this is an opportunity to showcase the wonderful local businesses that are still here supporting the community. Nominations for awards open next week and we would be very happy if we got put forward by our amazing customers once again. There’ll be regular updates on our social media platforms to promote the event and keep our followers in touch with what is happening.

Emerade adrenaline auto-injectors 150microgram
Does your child use Emerade 150mcg adrenaline pen for anaphylaxis treatment, peanut allergies, food allergies and so on? The manufacturer is recalling this strength of product over worries that the pen may not activate when needed. Please contact your pharmacy for further advice. Do not throw away the pens before you have a replacement, as it is better to have an injection that might work than to not have one at all. Other strengths of this product also have some worries, but are not being recalled at this time, but please contact your pharmacy if you have any concerns.

News - NHS prescription charges in England to rise (again) April 2020
The Government has announced an increase to the NHS prescription charge of 15 pence, to £9.15 per prescription item. This change will come into effect from 1st April 2020. The cost of prescription pre-payment certificates (PPCs) has also increased, with the price of a three-month PPC at £29.65 (an increase of 55 pence) and a 12-month PPC at £105.90 (an increase of £1.90). PPCs offer savings for those needing four or more items in three months, or 12 or more items in a year. It is important to remember this is NOT a payment to the pharmacy, this is a tax levied by the UK government to contribute towards the NHS. If you have any questions or concerns please speak to our pharmacy team.

Diabetes test strips
Do you live in East Lancashire? If you're diabetic and use the Contour Next blood testing system, your GP is likely to be changing you over to the Contour Plus machine. If you find your next prescription has Contour Plus test strips on it but you haven't been given a new Contour Plus machine, you will need to contact your GP surgery to arrange to be given one. The new strips won't work in the old machine. Contour Plus gives a longer window to add extra blood to the test strip before the test is wasted. If you have any queries, your GP or pharmacy will be able to help.

School's out!
The schools have finished and while teaching staff may be rejoicing, we still need to bear in mind healthcare during the holidays. Children with asthma often find their symptoms becoming a problem over the summer break - partly due to more running around and also high pollen counts, but also...
