Appliance dispensing - Tupton Pharmacy, Tupton

What is appliance dispensing?

 

Appliance dispensing is similar to prescription dispensing; it allows a local pharmacy to dispense a select number of products and items to a patient that are required for the management of their condition. This can be done through a dispensing appliance contractor (DAC) who will be partnered with the pharmacy to perform the service or the pharmacy itself will take on the role of the dispense contractor and provide the service directly to the patient.

 

Why is appliance dispensing important?

 

Appliance dispensing allows for pharmacies to supply patients with an appliance without having to make regular visits to their GP surgery. Prescriptions are prepared in advance and items are supplied in a timely manner.

 

What is included under the appliance dispensing service?

 

The list of appliances available as part of the dispensing service is vast. Some appliances available include:

  • Stoma pouches
  • Catheter bag and appliances
  • Compression bandages and hosiery
  • Laryngectomy and tracheostomy tubes/appliances

A flourishing Pharmacey in our village. It has been great to see you moving into participation with our social media and advertising that you are there for us. The ramp you have provided for people with disabilities to access you shop is an amazing achievement for a small business. Well done. Through the Covid virus you have excelled in communication and delivering prescriptions around our village to those who were isolating. Obviously this meant so much more extra work for you. I thank you in your all round efforts to be part of our village. Keep up the the good work Tupton people are grateful and we need you.
