Going above and beyond to deliver a Perfect Experience!

Last August, we launched a competition to celebrate the great service our colleagues offer every day. Pharmacy colleagues were nominated by you, our customers and patients, for going ‘above and beyond’ as part of the ‘Perfect Experience’ competition. Amongst the winners were dispenser Chloe Ridley from our Burntwood store and Terrie Edmonds from our Bell Green store. Chloe was nominated by customer Denise Perry for the ongoing support she provided following her father’s diagnosis of dementia and epilepsy four years previously. Denise told us that Chloe had been a lifeline to the family over recent years. Chloe helped her make arrangements such as having her father’s prescription delivered to her home, to release some of the strain on her time. “There were so many things to think about when my father was first diagnosed that I felt out of my depth and confused. There is an attitude amongst the staff in the Burntwood LloydsPharmacy that nothing is too much trouble and I have found it a huge help with supporting my father during tough times. We shouldn’t underestimate the power of our local pharmacy. “I couldn’t think of a worthier winner; Chloe is just brilliant.

How to get 2018 off to a healthy start

It’s tempting to make a long list of resolutions when January comes around. But despite your good intentions, how many times have you caved in to temptation just a few days later? The problem is, it’s never easy to commit to a lot of major changes all at the same time. Instead, why not try taking smaller steps to reach your goal? Small changes can lead to healthy habits, and can have a big impact on your health and wellbeing. To help you get started, here are a few easy things to try today that could help make 2018 your healthiest year yet: 1. Take the stairs Unless you live or work in a skyscraper, one way to start fitting more exercise into your daily routine is to abandon lifts and escalators and take the stairs instead. Little bursts of activity all add up. 2. Eat an extra portion of fruit or veg Instead of attempting a complete diet overhaul, increase your fruit and veg portions by just one.
