The new Ashton under Lyne MedicX Pharmacy, located in Ashton Primary Care Centre, was officially opened Wednesday 15 December by The Worshipful the Civic Mayor of Tameside, Councillor Jean Brazil. The Mayor performed the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the occasion and then had a blood pressure test using the new Health Diagnostics Options system in the new pharmacy.
The Ashton under Lyne MedicX Pharmacy has been designed with the community in mind, opening seven days a week with extended opening hours; until 9pm Monday to Friday and until 10pm at weekends. In addition to traditional pharmacy facilities such as dispensing, the pharmacy also offers a range of additional services, designed to complement those already provided at the adjoining primary care centre. The pharmacy team is able to provide blood pressure measurements, diabetes and cholesterol tests, as well as offering medication advice. These services have already proved popular since the pharmacy opened its doors at the beginning of December.
MedicX Pharmacy, Head of Operations, Gavin Birchall comments:
“It is testament to the importance of having a community focused pharmacy in Ashton under Lyne that we have been lucky enough to welcome the Mayor to the official opening of this new facility. We hope the very positive feedback we have received in our first fortnight of operating continues, and that the local community are happy with their new service.”
