£1.5M DIGITAL PHARMACY OPENS

A new £1.5m digital pharmacy has opened

in Liverpool, aimed at helping people living

with chronic care conditions to manage

their medicinal needs through artificial

intelligent mobile app 'Now Patient'. It has

been developed by Now Healthcare Group

to enable up to 15 million people living with

long-term health conditions (such as cancer,

diabetes and lung disease), to get free

delivery of their repeat NHS prescriptions

initially across Liverpool (with plans to

expand delivery to the rest of the UK).

NHS-approved, Now Pharmacy is a telePharmacy 'super-hub',

with the capacity to

dispense around 500,000 prescriptions per

month using the latest robotic technology. It

aims to bring improvements to those who

have suffered due to recent community

pharmacy cuts and have difficulty accessing

their medications.

Lee Dentith, Founder and CEO of

Now Healthcare Group, says, "The NHS

is evolving, and digital innovation is crucial

to offering patients quality care and

choice. As many as 15 million people in

the UK have chronic conditions, and Now

Patient enables them to manage their

own healthcare needs and to reduce the

strain on the overstretched national health

services. We are using robotic technology to

streamline processes and fulfill prescriptions

for thousands of NHS patients."

Last year, the Now Healthcare Group

became the UK's first digital health provider to

be assured by the Care Quality Commission

to meet all requirements within the new

enhanced digital guidelines, with no areas for

improvement. NHS Chronic Care Patients can

nominate Now Patient as their NHS pharmacy

to get free delivery of their repeat prescriptions

nationwide. The app is free to download

(available on iOS and Android). It includes

smartphone-based video appointments

with NHS-trained GPs, medical adherence

platforms to help users manage their meds

usage and repeat prescription services offer

free medicine delivery.
