Top 5 February – Super Savings!

1) Lifeline A4 and A2 Blood Pressure Monitors – Save 30% (Selected Lines)

The new medicare® Upper Arm Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor will measure your systolic and diastolic blood pressure as well as your heart rate. This easy to use home monitor uses a comfortable upper arm cuff and all your results can be conveniently read in the LCD panel at the front of the monitor.

Why is it useful to measure blood pressure at home?

To get a proper idea of your real blood pressure, your doctor will find it important that you get readings of blood pressure over a period of time and during different times of the day. So, when is the best time of day to take your blood pressure?

Doctors generally recommend following the ‘rule of 3’ :

3 times in a row (@ 3-5 minute intervals)

3 times a day for 3 days

Because individual blood pressures vary greatly, it’s really important that you follow your doctor’s instructions when measuring & recording your blood pressure.

Normally your blood pressure will rise while at work (exertion) and will be at its lowest during a sleep period. It is better to avoid measuring your blood pressure when you’re under stress, have consumed caffeine or used a tobacco product in the past 30 minutes, or have recently exercised. So, taking your blood pressure is best done after you rest for at least 5 minutes.

Recommendation from the Irish Heart Foundation: If you are over the age of 30, you should have your blood pressure checked at least every five years.

Self Care – taking charge of your health

An exciting societal shift is taking place in relation to how we look after our health and well-being. Increasingly, we have people coming into our pharmacies to seek advice about minor ailments and treatment options from our healthcare experts. Last Thursday, 25th January, saw the launch of the #SelfCare initiative organised by the Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU) and the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association (IPHA). The event was held in light of new research that demonstrates consumers are increasingly willing to take charge of their health, leading to a more effective and efficient healthcare system. This initiative sets out a range of proposals for a more focused approach to self care which could lead to better patient outcomes and considerable savings for the State as turning to pharmacists for medical advice could help to reduce waiting lists at GPs and hospitals.

Research demonstrated by yesterday’s publication, which is based on research from Behaviour & Attitudes, illustrates that there is a clear desire from the majority of Irish people (92%) to be involved in their own self care. Furthermore, the IPU recognises that the role of community pharmacists is pivotal to the successful development of self care and its more widespread adoption.

  “Embracing a philosophy of self care can lead to real, measurable savings in healthcare expenses and better outcomes for patients. Pharmacists can play a critical, expanded role in this area, utilising our accessibility and professional capabilities to benefit patients in partnership with our healthcare colleagues and the pharmaceutical industry.”

-Daragh Connolly, Haven Pharmacist and President of the Irish Pharmacy Union

  

-Source: PSI Public Survey – Attitudes to Pharmacy in Ireland

“As well as the obvious benefits for individuals in taking a greater role in maintaining healthy lives, adoption of self-care principles could also help the State manage the financial challenges of an ageing population and strained healthcare budgets. The Government is clearly committed to encouraging people to take more control of their own health, as set out in the Healthy Ireland strategy. Our industry is committed to working with healthcare professionals, especially pharmacists who are often the first port of call for health information and advice, to support consumers to identify the most appropriate channel within the healthcare system.”

-Dave Barrett, Chairman of IPHA Consumer Healthcare Division

Where to Start

The healthy Ireland strategy is a major Government-led programme which aims to encourage and support everyone living in Ireland to have the best possible physical and mental health and wellbeing. The information will be a good foundation for people looking to self care. Furthermore, discussing your health with your local pharmacist, and building trust with them to offer expert advice for you and your loved ones, will put you on the right track to making self care a common aspect of your life.

Ask Your Pharmacist First

The purpose of this information and indeed this initiative, is to emphasise the changing nature of your local pharmacy. With continued hard work, pharmacies hope to be able to expand on their provision of treatments for minor ailments within local Irish communities. Self care is a preventative method of looking after your health – while you have it, so that you can avoid illness/disease later in life. Expert advice is available in all Haven Pharmacies across Ireland. Our pharmacists will take the time to listen and offer advice on how you and your family can self care.

 For further information:

Call into your local Haven Pharmacy to discuss self care and the role of the pharmacist for you and your family. Our pharmacists will provide great-quality, trustworthy information so patients can seek care at the appropriate level and enhance their independence within the healthcare system.

Case Study: Swedish ‘Flu’ Map

The meeting heard about a unique Swedish IT-based self-care initiative that reaches 70% of the Sweedish population, which builds a ‘flu’ map and encourages patients to visit pharmacies for prevention and treatment. Jonas Vikman of LIF, the Swedish pharmaceutical trade association, on a unique predictive health campaign they ran with the retail pharmacy association in Sweden. Treat yourself with advice from your pharmacist analysed real-time data to track where people were accessing online information on colds and flu. From this, they built a ‘flu’ map of Sweden, which was constantly updated and was used to target online advertising on the benefits of visiting a pharmacy. It is estimated that the campaign reached 70% of the Swedish population. It also promoted a valuable public health issue by conveying the message that antibiotics were ineffective in tacking colds and flu.

The nicotine in cigarettes makes them addictive, but other substances in cigarette smoke, such as tar, carbon dioxide and other toxins, are more harmful to your health. NRT products like NiQuitin Patches do not have the health dangers of tobacco.

The nicotine from NRT reduces your cravings for cigarettes and helps you resist the urge to smoke. It also relieves some of the unpleasant symptoms (like feeling ill or irritable) that smokers have when they try to give up. The patches provide a steady amount of nicotine to your body, generally at a lower level than from cigarettes.

Haven join Knitivity Campaign

Haven Pharmacy Have Joined the Christmas Campaign That Everyone Is Talking About…

Haven Pharmacy are thrilled to announce that we have joined forces with the Beaumont Hospital Foundation Ireland, for their Christmas #Knitivity campaign.

This is a fantastic initiative that invites people up and down the country to knit or crochet a Christmas character that can be sold to raise funds for the Beaumont Hospital Foundation. Each character is unique and comes in a beautiful bag, with a tag detailing the name of the person who made the character, where they are from and why they wanted to help the Beaumont Hospital Foundation.

Up to now, the pattern packs and characters were only available directly from Beaumont Hospital but they will soon be available in Haven Pharmacies across the country.

Indepharm and Haven Pharmacy Chairman Keith Brennan explains why Haven Pharmacy are getting involved :

“Due to the high number of people in Ireland supporting the Knitivity campaign, Haven Pharmacy have offered to assist the Beaumont Hospital Foundation by distributing the Knitivity pattern packs and selling the characters in all of our 54 pharmacies, with 100% of the proceeds going back to Beaumont Hospital Foundation. As all Haven Members are rooted in Irish communities, we regularly get involved in local fundraising. This link with the Beaumont Hospital Foundation is the perfect opportunity for us to come together as a group for an excellent cause”

Paddy Delaney, Managing Director of Beaumont Hospital Foundation said:

“We’ve been truly amazed by the generosity of Ireland’s knitters in communities countrywide who are currently busy knitting and crocheting Santa’s, Elves and Reindeer’s for the Knitivity campaign. The gift of their time and creativity will be of enormous benefit to Beaumont Hospital Foundation in funding new and improved equipment to the hospital’s busy theatres and wards. We are very grateful  to the Haven Pharmacy group for giving us their support which will help us to reduce costs and provide us with invaluable retail space for the wonderful Knitivity products, allowing those knit locally to be sold locally”.

There are three characters available to knit and/or purchase: Monty the Reindeer, Dr. Claus and Beau the Elf. Each pack contains step by step guidelines on how to knit or crochet each character and a label to add your own personal message.

If you, or anyone you know would like to get involved, you can drop into your local Haven Pharmacy or contact Beaumont Hospital Foundation on 01 – 809 2457/email hello@beaumont.ie or visit their website

Thank You,

‘Shed-ding’ Light on the Rhodo Invasion In Killarney National Park

This November, Killarney National Park is teaming up with Killarney Chamber of Tourism & Commerce, Haven Pharmacy and the Irish Men’s Sheds Association to help protect a vital part of Ireland’s natural heritage.

The initiative which was spearheaded by Haven Pharmacist and local Killarney businessman Finbarr Kennelly, will see dozens of Men’s sheds members from across the country descend upon Killarney National Park to help tackle the problem of invasive rhododendrons. It will run from November 5th to November 8th.  Through the generosity of Killarney Chamber & Hoteliers, all those attending will be accommodated and fed for the duration of their stay in Killarney. 

Killarney National Park is one of Ireland’s natural treasures. An unspoiled habitat of lakes, mountains and unique wildlife, the Park attracts droves of tourists and visitors each year.

 

Invasive rhododendrons, whose unconstrained growth is a danger to flora and fauna, threaten the Park’s natural beauty and delicate ecosystems.

rohodo in bloomKillarney Havenkillarney haven no2

Rhododendron ponticum, the invasive species affecting Killarney National Park, is not native to Northern Europe. Despite its attractive purple flower, Rhododendron ponticum is harmful to wildlife, dangerous to people due to its unrestricted growth, and starves other plants of sun and sustenance beneath its tall, dense thickets.

 

While Killarney National Park has been fighting a rear-guard action against rhododendrons for over 30 years, the sheer size of the 10,000-hectare park presents serious challenges. This initiative represents an innovative approach – an attempt to harness the efforts of the whole community against this threat to one of Ireland’s most-visited sites of natural beauty.

 

 

 

Finbarr Kennelly and Edel Byrne discuss this initiative with Maura and Daíthi on RTÉ Today

 

Paul O’Neill of Killarney Chamber of Tourism & Commerce says:

“It is easy to see Killarney as a successful tourism town, but at its heart are communities of people who work together tirelessly to protect and enhance the National Park.  This initiative brings those communities together on a national scale and we are delighted to extend our hospitality to The Men’s Shed volunteers this November”

Indepharm Chairman Keith Brennan says: “Indepharm & Haven Pharmacy partnered with Men’s Sheds earlier this year as its values and commitment to local Irish communities aligned perfectly with those of Men’s Sheds. Our member Finbarr Kennelly saw an excellent opportunity for Haven Pharmacy and Men’s Sheds to support Killarney National Park and the Killarney Chamber of Commerce in clearing the Rhododendron in the National Park. We are delighted to see the partnership at the forefront of such an important initiative and it would not have been possible were it not for the generosity of Killarney Hotels and cooperation of the Chamber.”

 

Tim Calalane, NP&WS (National Parks & Wildlife Service): There are about 3100 hectares of killarney National Park that have varying degrees of rhododendron infestation.  Currently, approx. 2300 hectares (74%) of the park is under active management preventing rhododendron from becoming re-established following initial clearances using efficient and environmentally friendly methods. This programme consists of a few different elements of which volunteers play a pivotal role.  Along with a year-round student program, Voluntary Services International also hosts four two-week work camps over the summer months and finally the Killarney Mountain Meitheal have also been working tirelessly over the last number of winters eradicating rhododendron in different locations in the park. There are also annual contracts for areas that are not suitable for volunteers to work in.

 

Barry Sheridan, CEO of the Irish Men’s Shed Association, said “it’s an absolute pleasure for us to be involved. Men’s sheds are rooted in their local communities, but they also form a national network of like-minded men. Projects such as this show just how much our shedders have to contribute”.

 

The initiative takes place under the auspices of the Killarney National Park Mountain Meitheal which is sponsored by the Trustees of Muckross House – the meitheal being an ancient Irish agricultural practice which brings rural communities together in common cause. The initiative will run from Sunday November 5th to Wednesday November 8th. The volunteers will be specifically trained in using the approved “snip and spray” method which has proven to be effective at restricting the regrowth of the invasive plants.

Haven Pharmacy Announce Partnership With Irish Men’s Sheds Association

IndePharm, the co-operative group of pharmacies, trading under the Haven Pharmacy brand has announced its intention to partner with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association in a multi-year sponsorship agreement. All members of the IndePharm co-operative are working pharmacists embedded in their own local communities – many for generations.

The announcement was made jointly by IndePharm Chairman, Keith Brennan, and Irish Mens Sheds CEO, Barry Sheridan, at IndePharm’s recent AGM in Kilkenny. “Our co-operative ethos is to help to improve the health and well-being of patients and customers in our local communities. Irish Mens Sheds complements this through its programme of activities focused on men meeting to improve their own well-being by keeping physically, mentally and socially active” said Keith Brennan.

IndePharm plans to significantly increase its network of pharmacies from its existing 52 Haven Pharmacy stores over the next few years. This ambitious plan is supported by a detailed programme of member supports and initiatives to further improve buying opportunities; upgrade technology platforms; build the Haven Pharmacy brand to drive enquiries to its digital channels and increase footfall in its pharmacy stores.

Irish Mens Sheds is a registered charity focused on supporting a grassroots network of sheds, workshops and meeting places for men of all ages. There are 350 sheds in 150 towns with 10,000 members across Ireland. Its patron is President Michael D Higgins.

IndePharm will provide central funding and advisory services to Irish Mens Sheds and this will be supported by Haven Pharmacies in local communities through the promotion of Health and Wellness awareness initiatives. Developing strong local ties with Mens Sheds members and their families will be actively encouraged.

 

Barry Sheridan, Irish Mens Sheds CEO, commented:
‘The IMSA is delighted to partner with IndePharm and Haven Pharmacy. This is a practical, mutually beneficial partnership which has one key focus – working together to deliver better health to communities throughout Ireland. While our member sheds cater specifically to men, the knock-on benefits to families and communities are huge, and this partnership can only strengthen those gains. Men’s sheds are grassroots, member-focused and rooted firmly in communities, so there’s an obvious synergy with IndePharm. This partnership has real potential to build on the strengths of both organisations to the benefit of Irish society as a whole’.

The following article originally appeared in the Limerick Post.

HAVEN Pharmacy on Lower Gerald Griffin Street used to be named LC Pharmacy. It’s now officially Haven Pharmacy following its new identity launch on Friday July 10 which saw Munster and Ireland Rugby star Marcus Horan cut the tape in a big party that rewarded crowds with goody bags, face painting, spot prizes food and cake and what Haven Pharmacy will make its name on, amazing value offers. “We are the leading fastest growing network of Irish independent community pharmacists in the country,” says owner and pharmacist Billy Lane. “We are in control of our own businesses but we operate under the banner of Haven Pharmacy which is synonymous with expert professional care from your local pharmacy team. We bring you excellent value and service in your retail experience with us.”

BILLY and his pharmacy team were delighted with the turn-out and warmth of last Friday July 10’s big day for the company and has special thanks for those who made its impact possible: “Marcus Horan was a credit to himself. He greeted all customers, stood for photos and even let the kids take photos with his precious Heineken and Six Nations medals – a true gentleman”. There was praise too for Sophie, the wonderful and talented face painter, Anthony aka Mickey Mouse who danced with all the kids; Boxes, Bows and Balloons, Corbally for the beautiful balloons on display in the pharmacy; Parle & Hickey, Jaymark and Celtic Candles for the spot prizes and a special thanks to the Charleville Park Hotel, Cork for the big prize give away. “And a big thank you to all our loyal customers who joined us on the day here at Haven Pharmacy,” Billy says.

GIVEN its central location, close to bus stops and the bus/ railway station, Haven Pharmacy has been designed to appeal to the local customer and all their needs – retail, beauty, sun care, as well as pharmacy and consultation – with personal, friendly, experienced service and every respect for client confidentiality. “We are also committed to ongoing training which every staff member will benefit from in areas such as customer service, product knowledge, merchandising and professional services.” Billy would like to thank all his professional staff for their commitment and for embracing this new venture.
