Welcome news that Colinton Pharmacy is seeking to install a machine which will enable all-hours prescription collection.
The planned change is to install a prescription collection machine, called a Pharmaself24, which will allow patients to collect their prescriptions at any time, day or night, if they so choose. When the prescription has been prepared by dispensary staff and labelled, it will be scanned and placed in an individual box inside the machine, from the dispensary side. The scan will trigger patient record software to send a message to the patient’s mobile phone with a one use pin code which can then be used in the next 48 hours, at the machine, to pick up the package. The machine will look quite similar to a cash point machine.
