New phar­macy opens

Hamilton Advertiser - - 03.01.2019 -

Cen­tral Scot­land MSP Mar­garet Mitchell did the hon­ours at a rib­bon-cut­ting for the new Boots phar­macy in Hamil­ton.

Staff re­lo­cated from Hill­house Road to Well­hall Road ahead of Christ­mas.

And they were de­lighted to wel­come the Con­ser­va­tive politi­cian to their new base in the heart of Hill­house.

Mrs Mitchell said: “It was a plea­sure and priv­i­lege to help open the new Hamil­ton store. The team work tire­lessly to pro­vide first­class pri­mary care ser­vices in the com­mu­nity and I hope cus­tomers will ben­e­fit even fur­ther from the fa­cil­i­ties in store.”

Lo­cated within walk­ing dis­tance of Well­hall Surgery, cus­tomers and pa­tients will be able to make the most of the new phar­macy for their health­care es­sen­tials.

Along with a brand new dis­pen­sary, pri­vate con­sul­ta­tion room and wait­ing area, the team of phar­ma­cists and phar­macy sup­port col­leagues will be on hand to dis­pense pa­tients’ pre­scrip­tions, as well as of­fer health­care ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion on over­the-counter medicines.

Store man­ager Chloe Good­brand said: “We un­der­stand that our cus­tomers re­ally value hav­ing ac­ces­si­ble health­care close by, so I’m de­lighted that we have been able to se­cure a new unit in Hamil­ton, where our phar­macy team will be able to con­tinue to wel­come the lo­cal com­mu­nity in for all of their pre­scrip­tion and phar­macy ser­vices needs.

“I’d like to thank our team for their in­cred­i­ble sup­port and the lo­cal health board in help­ing us to find and trans­fer the li­cense at such short no­tice, mak­ing sure that there was no dis­rup­tion in care for our pa­tients.

“Hamil­ton wel­comed its very first Boots store in June 1922, and over 95 years later, our ded­i­cated team of health­care pro­fes­sion­als are still just as pas­sion­ate about sup­port­ing our pa­tients, and meet­ing the health­care needs of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
