MSP’S phar­macy visit

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS -

Cen­tral Scot­land MSP Mar­garet Mitchell vis­ited Boots Phar­macy at Hill­house Road.

Dur­ing her visit the politi­cian learned about what the phar­macy is do­ing in the com­mu­nity and the op­por­tu­ni­ties they pro­vide to trainee phar­ma­cists.

The store sup­ports health board ini­tia­tives, acts as a food bank col­lec­tion point and part­ners with a char­ity to pro­vide ca­reer de­vel­op­ment talks and mock in­ter­views to sup­port young peo­ple.

The team at the Hill­house phar­macy re­cently won Store of the Year in the Boots Best of the Best awards, and were nom­i­nated for Phar­macy Team of the Year at the Chemist and Drug­gist Awards ear­lier this year.

Mrs Mitchell said:“it was plea­sure to meet up with the team at Boots in Hill­house, who work tire­lessly to pro­vide a first-class ser­vice to the com­mu­nity.

“I be­lieve that by giv­ing com­mu­nity phar­ma­cists ac­cess to ap­pro­pri­ate pa­tient records, and more au­ton­omy over pre­scrip­tions, res­i­dents may be bet­ter served by all phar­ma­cies to meet their health care needs.”
