The Pharmacy Team

Evans Pharmacy, Barry

When lockdown happened at the end of  March, the pharmacy were faced with an unprecedented dilemma of how to safely service their 6,000-plus patients in Barry. Working with the medical centre team next door, they therefore came up with the Evans Pharmacy Aneurin Drive Through.

As the medical centre boasts its own large carpark, they were able to arrange to use a portacabin through April-to-July, and as patients drove up to the medical centre, they were greeted by the team in the carpark asking if they were there to collect or drop off a prescription. For collections, utilising walkie talkies the team (in full PPE) were able to bring out prescriptions from the pharmacy into the portacabin and then hand the appropriate supplies to the patients without them getting out of their cars.
