Thirty jobs are to be created through a new £1.5m digital Pharmacy
Thirty jobs are to be created through a new £1.5m digital Pharmacy opened in Liverpool, aimed at helping people living with chronic care conditions to manage their medicinal needs through artificial intelligent mobile app ‘Now Patient’.
Liverpool has been highlighted as having some of the most deprived health districts in the UK, and the ‘Now Patient’ app (developed by Now Healthcare Group) was created to enable up to 15 million people living with long-term health conditions such as cancer, diabetes and lung disease, to get free delivery of their repeat NHS prescriptions across Liverpool (and the rest of the UK).
The NHS approved tele-Pharmacy ‘super-hub’ – Now Pharmacy, will be able to dispense around 500,000 prescriptions per month and will be utilising the latest robotic technology to help smooth the distribution process.
It is seen as a life-saver for those are have suffered through recent community Pharmacy cuts and have difficulty accessing their medications.
