Cutting-edge technology is increasingly prevalent throughout community pharmacy in today’s market, and nowhere is it more prevalent than at the winner of this year’s eHealth and Innovation in Pharmacy Practice Award – Ballee Pharmacy in Ballymena.


the pharmacy was the first in northern Ireland – and the second in the whole of the UK – to install a

robot to automate the entire multiple dispensing process. In addition to the innovative robot, the pharmacy’s vision system - which photographs and records images of each patient prescription - remains the first in the UK.


the judges of the award remarked that, ‘while the standard of all entries was high, the panel believed the innovative approach shown by this pharmacy most closely demonstrated


a cutting-edge approach focussed on patients and their carers as evidenced by patient uptake.’


‘In community pharmacy, the most important person is obviously the patient,' said Stephen Burns from Ballee Pharmacy, 'and we have to do our very best to keep them safe. We introduced our robot to the business to support them in taking their medicines. this gives us


complete traceability and reinforces optimal outcomes.’


‘We think these events are a fantastic opportunity for pharmacy to highlight the technological innovations that are available today,’ said Keith Mclernon from award sponsor, Mclernon Computers. ‘they’re a brilliant showcase for the entire pharmacy profession.’
