Local pharmacist buys state of the art drugs dispensing technology

Nelson's Pharmacy in Caerphilly has moved to co-locate with local GPs at Nantgarw Road Medical Centre and purchased a Pharmacy ROBOT prescription dispensing system, which is only the third of its kind to be used in Wales.

Simon Nelson, Proprietor of Nelson's Pharmacy, having qualified as a Pharmacist out of Cardiff University in 1982, bought the established Tredegar Pharmacy two years later before opening his second pharmacy in Caerphilly in 1997.

The newly built Nantgarw Road Medical Centre presented the chance to accommodate a local pharmacist in the premises and as this was near to his existing Caerphilly premises in Cae Meillion, Simon saw it as an excellent opportunity to co-locate with the local GP's to extend the provision of Pharmacy Services to the local community.

Simon has taken advantage of the latest advanced technology used to dispense medication to patients by purchasing a state of the art Pharmacy ROBOT Dispensing System which will assist with the efficiency of drugs dispensed and allow the business to expand with a view to doubling his turnover over the next 12 months - the ROBOT is only the third of its type to be purchased and used in Wales.

With the funding and ROBOT in situ, Simon has opened the pharmacy and delighted at how efficient the ROBOT is proving. The GP's are also now fully in place to compliment the full range of services on offer for patients.

Via its specialist Healthcare Team of Chris Evans and Mark Woolley, RBS backed Nelson's Pharmacy's with funding for the move, the purchase of the ROBOT and costs of fitting out their new premises. Mark Woolley, Senior Healthcare Manager at RBS has been a great supporter of Simon's business and was delighted to be able to provide the funding needed to aid his business expansion.
