Here at Wyvern Pharmacy we've had a very positive start to February! With the cold weather warming, dark mornings getting lighter and the rain holding off (for now) we're feeling pretty good! Our dispensing staff have been out and about meeting residents in assisted living accomdation in the area, finding out about how we can help with their health and letting them know what we can offer. Our "old fashioned" Opodeldoc & Glycerin went down very well, with many commenting that it reminded them of happy times with their mothers many years ago. I take it as a compliment when one lady (who's father was a pharmacist) said:
"Thank you for despatching the Opodeldoc & Glycerin to me so quickly and so well packaged. It was lovely to talk to you and brought back fond memories of my father in his white coat busy in the dispensary."
This week we have also helped a new customer with her inhalers that she had been getting muddled with, but wasn't noticed by her previous pharmacy. Helped change a customer's prescribed calcium tablets to some that she doesn't have to chew as she hadn't been taking them. Discussed with a local charity how we can help dementia sufferers with their medicines. Promoted our Repeat Prescription Service and our male & female health services. Treated a customer for a urine infection when she couldn't see her doctor.
A good week and hopefully they'll keep getting better! Why not join up and see how we can help with your prescription needs?
