First impressions count and the front of your pharmacy is valuable marketing asset, it’s your own space and chance to show the public exactly what your pharmacy is offering. Your pharmacy should be eye catching and show the community why you are different from the rest. Make it an experience for the patient and not just another clinical transaction. We understand that not everyone has the resources and investment for such measures but even something simple like a welcome mat or a new green cross sign can illuminate your pharmacy.
It just as important to have workflow systems in place at your pharmacy too. On the front end, this means having a standardised process for replenishing inventory and a store layout that makes it easy to direct patients to the items they’re looking for. On the back end, a colour coded priority system for filling prescriptions, where to put your post and your FMD scanning solution can all help towards efficiency for the whole pharmacy team.
These workflow practices might take a while to get used to, but once they are in place your pharmacy will be easier to run and maintain. Navigate your way around these Business Partners to see how they can help the look and feel of your pharmacy.
