Comments, Suggestions & Complaints

At Ali’s Pharmacy, we welcome your comments and suggestions.

We aim to give you the highest standards of customer care and service. Should you have any complaints about our services or products, please speak to our pharmacist. We operate a formal complaints procedure which is part of the NHS system for dealing with complaints.

You can also get advice from the local Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS). PALS is not part of the complaints procedure itself, but they might be able to resolve your concerns informally or can tell you more about the complaints procedure and independent complaint advocacy services.

Please visit the NHS Website for more information about how to make a complaint on an NHS Service received from us or from any other NHS organization.

Confidential Help & Advice

At Ali’s Pharmacy we have a private Consultation Room available for personal health discussions with our Pharmacist and/or staff. If you wish to talk to the pharmacist on duty in private, or any of our helpful pharmacy staff, we can arrange this for you.

It can be embarrassing or difficult to talk to staff in front of other patients in the pharmacy about a medical condition. At Ali’s Pharmacy we understand this; so, just ask if you would prefer to discuss anything in the privacy of our Consultation Room.

Dispensing

At Ali’s Pharmacy, we dispense both NHS and private prescriptions and supply medicines and appliances.

We give information and advice on how to get the most benefit from your medicines and appliances.

We keep a record of what we supply to our customers so when you bring in a prescription, our records tell us whether you may safely take a medicine with any others you may be taking. We label your medicines to remind you about precautions such us avoiding alcohol and not driving if you feel drowsy.

We keep a comprehensive stock of medicines and use a fast and an efficient wholesaler service to enable us to fill all prescriptions promptly.

Dosette Box

This service is especially useful for those taking more than one regular medication.  We can prepare medicines, in a weekly Dosette Box – pillbox, to ensure they are able to utilise their medication correctly.

Healthcare plans that involve taking multiple medicines at different times of the day can get confusing at times. Some patients find it difficult to remember when to take each medication and how often. This can lead to forgetting to take some doses of medication or accidental overdoses when they forget that they have already taken their medicine dose. At Ali’s Pharmacy, we can help you organise your healthcare plan, reducing the risks associated with getting confused, by providing your medications in a Dosette Box or Pill Box.

What is a Dosette Box?

Dosette Box Service
A Dosette Box is a disposable plastic tray that separates your medicines into individual compartments for different times of the day for each day of the week. Each box contains a full week’s medication labelled up with days and times to help you remember to take the correct medicines at the correct time of the day.

Advantages of a Dosette Box

When taking medicines, it is important to take them in the correct doses and at the correct times. This can be a cause of distress for those who struggle to remember medications or who find it confusing due to the amount of medications they are taking. A Dosette Box eases the stress of remembering to take your medicines at the right frequency and at the right time of day.

The clearly marked compartments on a Dosette Box help with making sure your medicines are taken correctly, making sure that your treatment plan is effective as possible. A Dosette Box can also take away the confusion of adjusting your medication when your doctor wants you to gradually change your dosage over a period of time. Your pharmacist will dispense the correct doses of medicine into each compartment. A Dosette Box is particularly helpful for patients with memory issues, but can also help any patient facing a complex treatment plan.

A Dosette Box is also a great help to those who are cared for by a team of people. The Dosette Box reduces the possibility of communication breakdowns, with each carer being able to see clearly which medications have been taken.

If you feel that you, or someone you care for, could benefit from a Dosette Box please pop in for a chat with our Pharmacist for more information about this service.

Medicines Use Review (MURs) or Medi-Check

Ali’s Pharmacy is pleased to offer patients a free Medicines Use Review (MURs) or Medi-Check.

This service involves a confidential discussion about your medicines with the pharmacist and aims to help you get the most out of your medicines. During the consultation you will have the opportunity to find out more about your medication and discuss any issues or problems. This service is conducted in our private consultation room.

Please note that this review differs from the one done by the GP; the GP will assess and change medicines whereas the pharmacist will discuss the best way of taking them.

Please contact us for more information about this free NHS service – please ask for the pharmacist on duty.

Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions (ETP)
The way the NHS provides prescriptions to patients is changing, patients can have their prescriptions created and sent electronically directly from their GP to their ‘nominated’ pharmacy where they wish to receive their medications and/or appliances from. There is a transition period where both paper and electronic versions are created simultaneously so that the systems that handle the ETP versions have time to settle in and become the single standard means of issue.

We are asking our regular customers to sign a Nomination Form that will allow us to obtain your electronic prescription from your surgery in accordance with the NHS Electronic Prescription Service.

Submit the Nomination Form

You will normally be asked to nominate just one pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to and dispensed rather than a variety of pharmacies.
