Queen Elizabeth’s interest in “right medicine, right time, right dose” concept
Superintendent of the Co-operative Pharmacy Janice Perkins promoted the role of pharmacy to the Queen at the official opening of the Co-operative’s new support centre in Manchester recently.
According to Ms Perkins, the Queen was particularly interested in the concept of “right medicine, right time, right dose”. Ms Perkins explained: “I showed her a giant pill pack, which illustrates one of a number of ways we can support patients with taking their medication.”
The Duke of Edinburgh and 150 staff from the Co-operative Group, including members of the pharmacy team, attended the event at One Angel Square in Manchester. The support centre has been declared the most environmentally friendly building in the world using the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method.
