Alphega Pharmacy Members Receive Extra Support in Covid-19 Effort

Alphega Pharmacy Members have been going to heroic lengths to support patients during this time of uncertainty, coping with unprecedented demand and changing their ways of working to protect staff and patients.

Alphega Pharmacy is helping its 1,022 community pharmacy members with a range of useful resources and tools hosted on its COVID-19 hub site to support their continuing commitment to serve patients and the NHS through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Alphega Pharmacy has issued briefings on the developing situation, summarising the necessary actions and providing links to official guidance. Neil Scobie, Head of Alphega Member Offer & Engagement, said: "Keeping Alphega Pharmacy members informed by providing material that distils complex information into concise, actionable points is one of the best ways we can help. We're taking out this complexity for members, and freeing up their time to better serve patients during this critical period."

The Alphega Digital In-Pharmacy Tablets are being adapted to allow pharmacists to conduct online patient consultations, providing a continuity of service as more patients are having to self-isolate.

Alphega Pharmacy has put together a comprehensive COVID-19 Support Pack hosted on the Alphega portal COVID-19 hub site containing items to protect pharmacy staff and patients as they continue to operate through the crisis.
