Evan took part in a Building Community Pharmacy Partnership project in which he partnered with the Cornfield Project: a group of men, all of whom were veterans. Through the project, the men were able to share their often horrific experiences and Evan was able to provide support to them.
Anna partnered with Mind Your Mate and Yourself, a group of family members and volunteers brought together by the increased number of suicides in the local area. Anna created a safe space where participants shared their vulnerabilities and in which they were given accessibility to a medical professional.
Hughes Pharmacy was one of the first pharmacies in Northern Ireland to be fully accredited as a Health+ Pharmacy. A full-time ‘Health and Wellbeing Advisor’ is available five days a week and a health promotion update is held every Monday morning. The health promotion topics for the week are displayed on the large digital screen in the pharmacy window, which is visible to all passers-by.
Meigh Pharmacy has run several Building Community Pharmacy Partnership projects over the past year and has worked with the local community to deliver Living Well campaigns. One project, run in conjunction with the local community centre, helped women in the local area, who were suffering with anxiety and depression. The project enabled them to reintegrate into the community and helped provide support for their mental health issues.
