Why should you use 24-hour prescription collection in Exeter?
Below are a few reasons why you should take advantage of this amazing service:
Better patient care – Before the development of pharmacy automation systems, a pharmacist had to count, fill, cap, and label prescriptions manually. Now that the machine can swiftly handle these tasks, pharmacists have enough time to attend to other pressing issues, like giving immunisations and body screenings. It also enables pharmacists to provide better care by spending more one-on-one time with their patients. The prescription collection machine is also easy to use.
Increased patient satisfaction – Patients are likely to be less satisfied with the pharmacy’s services if they will be waiting for a long time for service or collection of prescriptions. The 24-hour prescription collection in Exeter deals with patients’ needs much faster, increasing satisfaction.
Increased patient safety – Increased patient safety is quite significant. Electronic prescriptions play a crucial role in ensuring minimal to no adverse drug events occurrence. Errors associated with written prescriptions such as selection of unavailable or incorrect drug or dosage, missing information, misinterpretation of the order due to illegible handwriting and duplication of therapy can all be avoided more easily.
Reduce lost prescriptions – It’s easy for a patient to misplace paper prescriptions because they are small. This can become stressful and time-consuming for both the pharmacist and patient as the prescription has to be re-written. Electronic prescribing enable the pharmacy to send prescriptions directly to a pharmacy. A patient doesn’t have to keep track of a paper prescription!
