    Recently Mary attended a community open day that was hosted at Capital Chemist Charnwood.

    The pharmacy showcased an impressive range of services that they offer, including wound management, medication reviews, mobility equipment, continence advice as well as a free maternal and child health clinic.

    “It was great to see that Charnwood Capital Chemist is not just an outlet where people buy over-the-counter and prescription medicines, but also a place which provides the community with other primary health care services,” Mary said.

    “This as you know is critically important, given that chemists are located closer to where people live and work, making health services more accessible.

    “It’s no wonder that earlier this year Charnwood Capital Chemist was named Pharmacy of the year.” Mary stated. “This is an achievement that clearly shows their commitment to excellence and forward-thinking patient focus.”

    I congratulate Samantha Kourtis and all the staff at the Charnwood Capital Chemist, well as the former manager Brian Frith, for their accomplishment and wish them all the best,” Mary concluded
