A robot-powered digital pharmacy is set to open in Liverpool. The £1.5million project was developed by Now Healthcare Group and run by Now Patient. It will be able to dispense around 500,000 prescriptions per month. Patients can use the firm’s AI mobile app, Now Patient, to get their medicines delivered to them for free.
The NHS-approve telepharmacy provides solutions to patients who have been affected by recent community pharmacy cuts and have difficulty accessing their medications.
Lee Dentith, founder and CEO of Now Healthcare Group said: “The NHS is evolving, and digital innovation is crucial to offering patients quality care and choice. 15 million people in the UK are suffering with chronic conditions, and Now Patient enables them to be empowered to manage their own healthcare needs and to reduce the strain on our country’s overstretched health services.”
