Debbie Abrahams MP visits Local Pharmacy

May 24, 2019

Debbie Abrahams, MP for Oldham East and Saddleworth, visited Well Pharmacy in Uppermill on Friday 10th May 2019 where she met Pharmacist Michael Johnson and GMLPC Committee member Mujahid Al-Amin. During the visit Ms Abrahams heard how the pharmacy has encouraged people to make it their first port of call for minor illnesses such as sore throats, rashes and tummy problems, instead of heading straight to a GP.

Ms Abrahams also heard about the huge potential benefits for patients that could come from expanding community pharmacies’ role to provide a wider range of healthcare services and advice to help the NHS achieve the goals set out in its Long Term Plan, which aims to provide more care outside hospitals and prevent deaths through earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Debbie praised the pharmacy regarding an incident that had occurred when she was canvasing in the area, an elderly resident she visited was extremely confused by her medication, so Debbie contacted the pharmacy and was amazed at the level of service and quality of care they gave to the patient.
