Yesterday I was able to visit Pill Pharmacy with Welsh Government Health Minister Mark Drakeford AM. Both Mark and I were able to chat with the team based there to understand the work they do and the challenges they face.
Pill Pharmacy is a fine example. It is in the heart of the community of Pill and offers a great range of services; including free blood-monitoring, diabetes checks and smoking cessation. Open earlier this year, the pharmacy has gone from strength to strength. Pharmacists have a wealth of experience and knowledge. They can provide useful advice which can take pressure away from GPs and hospitals.
Pill Pharmacy, owned by Asim Ali, was nominated as a finalist in 2 categories at the 2015 Welsh Pharmacy Awards, and won the prize for the Independent Pharmacy Practice of the Year Award.
