Spirit Pharmacy for people with diabetes

NEWS

Spirit Pharmacy, the UK's only home delivery pharmacy

offering tailored services for people living with diabetes,

has launched its free Live Well With Diabetes package.

The resource combines valuable materials, such as foot

care guides, monthly tracker sheets, and ideas for healthy

food swaps, with helpful items to greatly impact people's

wellbeing when living with diabetes.

Zara Syed, Chief Pharmacist, told Desang: "We're doing

a lot of work at Spirit looking at new ways that we can

best help people living with diabetes. In general, people

know that they can access help from their GP, local

hospital or diabetes specialist nurse, but pharmacists

are often overlooked despite our wealth of knowledge

and being well-placed to support people in-between

their regular medical appointments. We want to go

much further than simply sending people's medication

to them. That's why we put together this new package.

As we already post customers' medication, we can

include these items at no extra cost for those receiving

free NHS prescriptions. We see it as a key way to get

the information and support that people need into their

hands easily, and for free."

Although the lockdown has encouraged many people

to go online more often and learn how to use digital tools

such as Zoom, we know that many people still prefer

the personal aspect of speaking to a 'real' pharmacist.

That's why we speak to lots of our customers personally

over the phone, keeping up with what's going on in their

lives, helping to deal with their GP, and seeing how they

are feeling. Many customers have been shielding, and

it's been lovely to be able to chat with them and feel like

we've made a genuine difference during the pandemic.

Spirit Pharmacy is also keen to hear from Desang

readers. "We have lots of plans for Spirit Pharmacy going

forward," said Syed. "It's an evolving process, and we are

really keen to speak to people living with Type 1, Type 2

or any of the rarer types of diabetes, to understand how

we can best support our customers. I'd love anyone who'd

like to know more about our services or is interested in

helping us develop new ways to support people living

with diabetes."
