A double prize for Blaenau Pharmacy

The annual Welsh Pharmacy Awards took place on the 24th May at The Vale Resort, Glamorgan

Alphega Pharmacy member Blaenau Pharmacy, part of the Fferyllwyr Llyn group scooped up two awards:

  • Business Development of the Year Award
  • Innovations in Quality and Efficiency through Technology in Community Pharmacy award

The pharmacy was recently taken over in March 2017 and since then it has undergone a major refurbishment to ensure the premises were fit-for-purpose. The design of the pharmacy focused on making it appealing to customers, creating an effective and safe workflow and facilitated the delivery of clinical services. The pharmacy now also offers every clinical service commissioned locally every day it's open as well as a range of private services such as travel vaccinations (including yellow fever), cholesterol testing and diabetes screening.

In terms of innovation, the pharmacy has embraced the concept of cloud-based working and in particular, a cloud-based PMR system. This system has allowed the pharmacy to develop crucial links with local care homes and substantially reduce the number of errors on MAR charts.

A massive congratulations from all of us at Alphega Pharmacy.
