Pharmacy dispenser’s insight into dealing with the community during COVID19

Pharmacy workers interact with the public on a day-to-day basis, whether that is through patient consultations or ensuring the safe supply of medication. However, during the COVID19 lockdown, their daily work has changed dramatically.

We spoke to Sabah, aged 24, a pharmacy dispenser from Bury – to discuss her experience.

How is the NHS dealing with this crisis?

Have you noticed a change in how many customers you deal with, or what they are looking for?

How have you implemented the social distancing rule within the pharmacy?

How are you protecting yourself, patients or customers?

During this pandemic, the safety of the staff, patients and customers is vital and we all have a role to play in alleviating the preassure on the NHS.

Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.
