Caring Together

Zoom meeting, organised by Caring Together

I was thrilled to be invited and take part in a Zoom meeting, organised by Caring Together.

Caring Together is a network partner of Carers Trust and they provide information, services and campaign ‘so that carers have choices’.

Laura (Family Carer Coordinator of Caring Together) and I have been in touch since January. She does a great job organising groups for carers in which they can bring along their loved ones, also to book speakers and organisations to give talks on various topics and products. 

In February, I attended the Shelford group at the David Rayner Centre in Scotsdales. It had a lovely atmosphere of friendship and support. Whilst the loved ones were being cared for, and on this particular occasion having a birthday party, the carers and I listened to a lovely session about stress management by Susan from Everyone Health

I’ve been involved ever since and yesterday had the honour of being the first pharmacist speaking over Zoom.

I was able to highlight PillSorted services:

Illustrating our safe and secure packaging and how we make sure we get all your medication ready for you, altogether, so you receive everything you need in a monthly pack.

Our handy Information Chart that has images of your tablets, the time of day you need to take it in different colours and how many to take each time.

If you need any non-prescription items, we can add that to your monthly pack, anything from paracetamol, vitamins, creams and gels to incontinence pads.

Pillsorted services are available over the phone, Whatsapp or Zoom. Mornings are set aside for calls and consultations with our team.

Looking forward to our next meetings.

Ask Your Pharmacist

I am grateful to NHS for the informative campaigns they run. One particular one was the “Ask Your Pharmacist” campaign. NHS launched this campaign last October and it is planned to return annually. The aim is to highlight pharmacists as first point of call.

In NHS words: “Pharmacists are highly qualified health care professionals who can provide clinical advice and prompt treatment for common illnesses. They work with other professionals, such as doctors and nurses, to give you the best possible care as part of your local NHS team.

PillSorted is devoted to your health and wellbeing. We’re designing our pharmacy towards your preferences:

  • Your Personal Pharmacist is available for advice and treatment on many health issues that don’t necessarily need a GP or hospital appointment.
  •  You can enjoy a consultation from the comfort and privacy of your own home! Just give us a call or reach us via email.
  • Give your Personal Pharmacist a call or reach us via e-mail. Alternatively, you can organise a voice/video call via WhatsApp.

Personal Pharmacy? PillSorted we say…

Here’s why:

For You:

  • We’ve all embraced technology. We like to make video calls; we like to browse on-line and get things delivered; so why not have a health chat from the privacy and comfort of our home and then get our medicine delivered?
  • We don’t need to take a paper prescriptions to the pharmacy anymore. We choose our preferred pharmacy at our doctors, then your prescription arrives at our pharmacy electronically and saves us one leg of the trip… and all the hassle… and all the wait.

For The National Health Sevice:

  • The NHS has also embraced technology. Thanks to the NHS we now have Electronic Prescriptions.

Let me explain. Every month, pharmacies pack all the prescriptions dispensed in that month and send it to NHS, for payment. 

I remember when it was all green or other various color paper prescriptions, and we had to manually go through piles the size of two to three packs of 32 tissue rolls (the ones you can’t find nowadays!) and box them according to NHS guides. A tedious monthly routine! 

Since the arrival of Electronic Prescriptions and the digital medicine database, we know exactly what the doctors want, the NHS knows exactly what we’ve dispensed, and end of month is a click! 

Efficient, accurate and modern.

So, we thought of PillSorted. We’re a personal service right here at your door, using technology to deliver scientifically proven, up to date care.

The National Health Service (NHS)

I have lived with the NHS for most of my life and want to say how fortunate I feel, and how grateful I am, to our National Health Service.

As a patient, there’s nothing more humane than getting compassionate and professional help, at you’re most vulnerable time. You know you’ll be taken care of, no matter what.

As a health-care professional, I’ve had the privilege of taking part in clinical and leadership training, contributing to public health campaigns and collaborating with local and national service provision. 

In all these we truly keep patients in our line of sight.

PillSorted is proud to be part of NHS. 

Our vision of  “All human scientific achievements in healthcare, available to all of the human race” is in line with NHS’ vision.

Our mission is to deliver scientifically proven, up to date and accurate care, to all of the human race. We are in a position to constantly interact with our patients, we pro-actively encourage living healthily, we enable early disease detection by querying conditions, and we review medications to help maintain treatment. 

Let’s help our national treasure to provide high quality, dignified care.
