Community Carer Support
Our team at Five Ways Pharmacy are here to support you in caring for your friends and family in the community. We offer a range of services to help assist you in offering them the highest level of care.
1. FREE Prescription Collection & Delivery Service
We can take control of ordering and collecting prescriptions from the patients’ GP surgery. We will then prepare the medication at our pharmacy and our dedicated drivers will deliver them direct to the patients home or other nominated address. This valuable service will give you peace of mind knowing that your friends and family will always receive their medication in good time. Click here to download our PDF form
2. Medication Dispensed in Weekly Trays
All of the prescribed medicines are in one simple pack which contains seven day’s supply. 4 packs are supplied – one for each week of the month. Each blister in the tray contains the correct amount of each type of medicine that the GP has prescribed.
All of the medication is clearly labelled: Morning, Lunch, Teatime and Evening to help ensure the medication is taken at the right time each day.
3. Compliance Aids:
MAR Sheets – To ensure an accurate record is kept of the Medicines that have been administered to the patient and to help provide an audit trail of the person responsible for administering the medication.
Non Click-Lock Tops – To help ease the difficulty that some patients experience in getting the caps off medicine bottles.
