An automated prescription vending machine has been launched in a town centre pharmacy to make picking up medication easier for customers.
The ‘Auto Vend’ service at Weldricks, based in Hall Gate, will be offered as an additional pharmacy service for patients with a mobile phone.
The service includes customers being able to pick up repeat prescriptions. For patients already registered for the repeat prescription service, they are asked to ring 01302 342338.
Customers can also collect medicines from the vending machine after dropping off prescriptions into the pharmacy.
If people would prefer to drop off their prescription and collect their medicines at any time night or day, the vending machine offers that service as well.
