Westmount Pharmacy, Peterborough ON
By Clifford Skarstedt
The Healthcare Closer To Home event was held at Westmount Pharmacy in Peterborough on Wednesday.
The national initiative aims to promote the delivery of professional healthcare from neighbourhood pharmacies across Canada.
MPP Jeff Leal had the opportunity to meet pharmacy owner Murad Younis, experience a demonstration of an expanded scope of practice service and to hear real life stories from pharmacists about how the new services have been important to patients.
Services include, medication counselling, flu shots and vaccinations, minor diagnosis and prescribing and wellness counseling.
