Medication & Healthcare Services

All Seasons Pharmacy is committed to providing an extensive range of community services alongside dispensing and medication support.    At All Seasons we provide the following Services:

 

Long Term Conditions - Patients that have Long Term Health Conditions are able to enrol in our LTC Programme. This allows our pharmacists to discuss your medications with you and how they work to improve your health. The pharmacist will also talk through a plan of services to help you better manage your medications. We are also able to better line up your repeat medications and send you reminders when your repeat prescriptions are ready.  Ask us about whether this FREE service is right for you!

 

Medicines Use Review (MUR) - Patients who are on many medications or are having difficulty managing their medications should discuss a medicines review with our pharmacists. Our pharmacists are trained in this service and are able to assist you in getting the best results from your medicines. This includes helping you remember to take each medicine corrrectly,  understanding the use of each medicine and knowing possible side effects and interactions. This is a fully funded (FREE) , more indepth service, designed to improve your health and understanding of your medications.

 

Medico Blister Packs - All Seasons Pharmacy provides Medico Blister Packs which help you take your pills on time, while reducing the number of medicine bottles you need to worry about. Blister Packs arrange your medicines into a easy to use system. We have a blister packing Alpaca Robot which assists us in accurately packing your medicine and reducing the time it takes to get this ready for you. We are able to discuss funding options that can provide up to nine months of FREE blister packs. Ask us how!
