A Whalley boy who has a condition that affects his general development and motor skills was honoured when he was asked to open a new
concept at his local pharmacy.
Lloyds Pharmacy in Whalley will now offer a new approach to community health developed to improve access to healthcare information and support.
The ribbon was cut by loyal customer Jane Lee and her son, Oliver, who has been helped by the pharmacy team.
Pharmacy manager Dawn Watson said: “Oliver is a happy little boy and Jane absolutely loves the pharmacy and says we bend over backwards for her.”
Oliver was born with a brain condition which affects his development and he also has epilepsy. He is on many different medications and the team have looked after his needs over the years.
Jane, who runs Toby Jug Tea Shop in Whalley, said: “We have such a good rapport with the pharmacists Mike and Mehnaz and all the team.
“They know just what Oliver needs and are always there for us.
“Oliver relies on a lot of medication from this pharmacy and the staff are always so helpful. We were absolutely honoured when they asked us to perform the opening ceremony.”
She added: “Oliver is doing really well and he attends White Ash School in Oswaldtwistle.”
As part of the transformation, the pharmacy in King Street now offers free, enhanced services for a range of conditions, including skin health and pain management.
The pharmacy is open from 8-30 am to 7 pm on Monday, 8-30 am to 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday and 11 am to 3 pm on Sunday.
