A pharmacy in Grantham has unveiled its new look after £80,000 was spent transforming it into a ‘centre for healthy living’.
Barrowby Gate Pharmacy, a Lincolnshire Co-op, has undergone a complete refurbishment.
More space has been given over to a private consultation room, an information area and seating. There is also a poster and leaflet display featuring advice on healthy diets, weight management and healthy lifestyles.
Pharmacist Christina Jones said: “Introducing the ‘Healthy Living’ concept has made the pharmacy hugely different. It is much lighter and brighter and more open.
“It has been modernised a lot too, there’s more room and the shelves are easier to reach which gives staff a better environment to work in.
“We’ve had lots of positive comments from our customers including a few ‘wows!’.”
A number of internal walls have been removed and all of the original fittings have been replaced, to create an improved facility and a better working environment for staff.
Private consultation facilities enable a wide range of services to be provided, such as checks which can indicate the risks of pending health problems.
The pharmacy offers free tests for blood pressure, blood glucose and body mass index.
