P7 SCHOOLCHILDREN NAME LOCAL


PHARMACY’S NEW ROBOT


A local schoolgirl has won a £100 Amazon voucher after choosing the winning name for the new Dickson Chemist robot dispenser.


Holly Smith, who is in Primary 7 at St Denis’ Primary School in Glasgow’s Roselea Drive, won the vouchers as part of a competition run by the award-winning, family-owned pharmacy group to name its new robotic system.


Five other pupils from St Denis’ Primary School, as well as five pupils from Dalmarnock Primary School, Dunn Street, all won runner-up prizes of a £10 Amazon voucher.


Dickson Chemist has installed a German-engineered Rowa Vmax robot, industry leading technology, which is designed to revolutionise the dispensing and storage of medicines.


The system works by high-speed scanning of the barcodes, and


directing the prescription to the correct destination. This removes any possibility of human error, and vastly increases the speed at which prescriptions are dispensed, reducing patients’ waiting time.


‘We wanted to get the children involved in naming the robot,’ said Nadine Miller, Operations Manager at the Bridgeton Practice, ‘to show that robots aren’t scary, and to show them the fun that can be had. We’ve been able to cut waiting times by two thirds already with the robot in place, and I believe this system is the future of patient care in the Dickson Chemist family.’


The new system has been installed as part of a full-scale refurbishment of


the Bridgeton practice, which included moving the consultancy room, and a total remodel of the counter and frontage, making the practice more open and inviting.


The Dickson Group has already installed robotic technology at its Rutherglen practice and is also investing heavily in home delivery pharmacy services, in accordance with the direction of travel in the NHS which is encouraging more home- based care across the UK.
