Healthy living revamp for Burton Road Pharmacy

A Lincoln pharmacy is offering an improved service to its customers after undergoing a healthy living refurbishment.

Burton Road Pharmacy has become the latest Lincolnshire Co-op pharmacy to get a revamp, with work comprising of an improved consultation room, new signage inside and out and a larger dispensary.

Pharmacy Manager Jaime Moreno said: “The pharmacy is a brighter, nicer space now with a more open-plan layout and that makes us more approachable to customers.

“We’d encourage anyone thinking about making healthy lifestyle changes to come in and have a chat – pharmacists are qualified to give advice on a whole range of things, including healthy diet, alcohol consumption and giving up smoking.

“We have lots of great resources to help our customers and it can often be much quicker and easier than making a doctor’s appointment.”

All 48 Lincolnshire Co-op pharmacies offer free health checks including blood pressure, BMI and lung age, as well as providing the NHS New Medicine Service and Medicine Use Reviews.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Head of Pharmacy Alastair Farquhar said: “The refit will provide our pharmacists and pharmacy advisors with a better environment in which to offer our wealth of services.

“Our free health checks are a great way to make sure patients are aware of any health issues that they may have and provide a warning to improve their lifestyle if necessary.”
