Appliance Dispensing - Hale Village Pharmacy, Liverpool

What is appliance dispensing?

 

Appliance dispensing is similar to prescription dispensing; it allows a local pharmacy to dispense a select number of products and items to a patient that are required for the management of their condition. This can be done through a dispensing appliance contractor (DAC) who will be partnered with the pharmacy to perform the service or the pharmacy itself will take on the role of the dispense contractor and provide the service directly to the patient.

 

Why is appliance dispensing important?

 

Appliance dispensing allows for pharmacies to supply patients with an appliance without having to make regular visits to their GP surgery. Prescriptions are prepared in advance and items are supplied in a timely manner.

 

What is included under the appliance dispensing service?

 

The list of appliances available as part of the dispensing service is vast. Some appliances available include:

  • Stoma pouches
  • Catheter bag and appliances
  • Compression bandages and hosiery
  • Laryngectomy and tracheostomy tubes/appliances

Always had fantastic service from our village pharmacy. Friendly, professional and extremely helpful advice given. During the lockdown weeks, Mike and all the staff worked very hard to ensure this service was provided in a safe manner within the premises and the continued delivery service, vital to so many in the village. Thank you to all concerned, we certainly appreciate all you have done and continue to do.
