New Robotic Pharmacy for Abbey Field Medical Centre

We are pleased to announce the opening of a new pharmacy at Abbey Field Medical Centre in Colchester. Rushport has worked with the partners at Abbey Field Medical Centre to secure permission for a brand new pharmacy contract and then design and create a new pharmacy space adjacent to the main entrance of the medical centre. With space at a premium and after the merger with Portland Medical Practice and over 15,000 patients visiting the medical centre, the pharmacy has invested in the very latest technology with a robot carrying out much of the dispensing work freeing up more time to spend with patients.

We were able to reconfigure existing rooms within the surgery to create the pharmacy space and provide additional space for the existing medical centre staff. The pharmacy has only been open for a few weeks, but the feedback from the patients and practice staff has been excellent.
