BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY THIS WINTER - BIG JAB WEEKEND 4-5 DECEMBER

A number of community pharmacies across Northern Ireland will be participating in the Big Jab Weekend on Sat 4th and/or Sun 5th December.

Participating pharmacies will be running clinics either in the pharmacy or at a bigger location nearby. You may be able to book or just walk-in - check with your pharmacy for details of how to access the clinic and to check your eligibility. Participating pharmacies will promote their clinics via their social media or in-pharmacy.

Community pharmacies across Northern Ireland are offering Booster and 1st and 2nd primary dose Covid-19 vaccinations:

Can I be vaccinated at Community Pharmacy?

To be vaccinated at Community Pharmacy, you generally have to be registered with a GP in Northern Ireland and meet an eligible age cohort.

If you are not registered with a GP in Northern Ireland, speak to the pharmacist for advice about how you can be vaccinated.

UCA is delighted to be working with Pharmsmart, an Electronic Incident Reporting software provider, to promote their range of digital products and services to Pharmacies across NI.

Pharmsmart is a young and dynamic company developed by Pharmacists Sunil Patel and Taskeel Khan, who have created IT solutions for the front-line challenges facing everyone. Pharmsmart's ethos is to be connected and responsive to all that use their software.

 

Why Pharmsmart?

 

Community pharmacy is experiencing an alarming rise in aggressive and violent incidents. The worst incident involved two pharmacists (both UCA Executive Committee members) being stabbed in a pharmacy in West Belfast.

 

UCA surveyed its members who told us about their experiences which can be summarised as follows:

 

·         Aggressive and rude behaviour from patients on a daily basis

·         Violent incidents/attempted robberies in the past year

·         Attempted/robberies increasingly involving knives or guns
