Multilingual Staff - Greenfield Pharmacy, Greenfield

How language barriers affect the healthcare sector:

 

With the UK being a multi-cultural society, languages and dialects aren’t always the same. This can make communication very difficult. Language barriers can often be problematic when attempting to determine diagnosis and negotiating effective treatments between a patient and a healthcare practitioner.

 

What can multilingual staff offer the local community?

 

Some of our staff can communicate in two or more languages. This is very important for building a relationship between the patient and pharmacy and aids decision making when it comes to diagnosis and choice of treatment.

Small but friendly, this store has a Post Office franchise (which recently re-opened), but with limited opening hours. Only one customer is allowed at one time, though, and you must wear a face mask.

I work in Panton Surgery in Holywell, and the staff at Greenfield pharmacy always go above and beyond their call of duty towards patients and members of staff alike. Well done team. Keep up the great work

I had a query re home delivery for members of my family who are house bound? Spoke to Lynne, who was able to sort it out with the help of the Pharmacy team for them to be included on the prescription Home Delivery Service. There was no fuss, no awkward questions, just a friendly chat & explaining how it all works? Thank you so much. Take care & stay safe. Tx
