AM and MP Visits

The local Assembly Member visited the Boots pharmacy in Brecon and underwent a Diabetes Risk Assessment during which she learned the importance of identifying the early signs of diabetes, which is a manageable condition once diagnosed. 
 
Pharmacist Andrew Knipe took Ms Williams through the full assessment procedure and explained the advice that was given to customers once the assessment results were analysed. He explained that when the outcome of the assessment suggests that the customer is a candidate for the condition they are referred to their own GP for further advice and support.
 
Paul Harris, Pharmacy Manager for Boots in Wales, explained the benefits of the service being delivered via the national community pharmacy network in Wales, something Ms Williams supports. During the visit, she showed a keen interest in other services offered by the pharmacy and expressed a willingness to lend her support for the future development of community pharmacy services.
