Haven Pharmacy group achieves health literacy quality mark for all branches

We are proud to announce that Haven Pharmacy group is the first group to have all 49 branches receive the Crystal Clear health literacy quality mark!

Pictured are Clare McNally, NALA, Daragh Connolly, Haven Pharmacies. Picture by Shane O’Neill, Coalesce.

This mark recognises the critical role pharmacies play in helping people understand their health issues and the steps they need to take to improve their health. The mark is awarded to pharmacies where there is evidence of, and commitment to, providing a literacy friendly service.

A new International Health Literacy Survey, due to be published by the Department of Health in October, shows that 28% of the Irish population have ‘limited’ health literacy and in particular struggle with finding and evaluating information. Delivering a literacy friendly service in pharmacies is important for this 28% so that literacy and numeracy needs of customers are considered and communication is clear and sensitive.

Colleen Dube, Chief Executive Officer, NALA commented: “We are delighted to present Haven Pharmacy with an award for being the first pharmacy group to have all their pharmacies achieve the Crystal Clear mark. This award celebrates the 49 Haven pharmacies all over Ireland who are engaging with customers in a literacy friendly way. This benefits customers’ understanding of health information and their taking their medication correctly.”

Daragh Connolly, Chairperson of Haven Pharmacy and pharmacist in Dungarvan said: “We are delighted that Haven is the first pharmacy group to have all their pharmacies awarded the Crystal Clear mark. Our pharmacies have found great benefits from applying for the mark, in particular how staff are now more aware of literacy needs and how to respond sensitively to customers. We can be more responsive and inclusive to the communities we serve every day. Staff are using plain English, avoiding jargon and confusing terms and going over medication and dosage to ensure customer is clear.”

A local Haven Pharmacist said: “Slowing down and taking time to talk to customers to check their understanding, led to less telephone queries afterwards.”

Mairead McCaul, Managing Director, MSD Ireland (Human Health) added: “We congratulate all Haven pharmacies for achieving the Crystal Clear mark as they demonstrate best practice in providing a health literacy friendly service to the public. We are delighted to continue to support the programme as additional pharmacies take the necessary steps to improve the patient communication, experience and understanding.”

The Crystal Clear Pharmacy Programme, Ireland’s first health literacy quality mark for pharmacies, was launched in 2015 by NALA, the Irish Pharmacy Union and MSD and supported by Healthy Ireland. To date 105 pharmacies in 19 counties have been awarded the mark. Pharmacies who wish to participate in the Crystal Clear Programme can complete the online audit here www.nala.ie/health-literacy/crystal-clear-mark/.

Get a Vaccine, Give a Vaccine

If you have been vaccinated against COVID-19 you can give now a vaccine to someone in need by supporting UNICEF in the biggest vaccination campaign in history.

With your support, UNICEF will deliver 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines to the most vulnerable families, health workers and high-risk people on our planet.

The pandemic has affected every country, community and business in the world, but access to the solution – vaccinations – is not being experienced equitably. No one is safe until we are all safe.

We are in a race against time and we need to act swiftly to vaccinate as many people globally as possible before more variants emerge. While some countries’ vaccination efforts are underway, the situation is markedly different for people in low and middle-income countries. On average, in high-income countries, one in four people have received a vaccine. In low-income countries, it’s one in more than 500. UNICEF was asked by the international community to step forward to help end the pandemic. UNICEF is the world’s leading organization on immunization with decades of experience delivering over 2 billion vaccines globally every year.

Minister for Health signs regulations to assist with prescriptions during COVID-19

Minister for Health Simon Harris has signed two statutory instruments to relieve some of the pressures on our GPs, pharmacists and patients in accessing prescriptions.

The Minister signed the Medicinal Products (Prescription and Control of Supply) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 allowing for the electronic transfer of prescriptions to a pharmacy via an approved electronic system, the HSE’s Healthmail system.

In addition, the maximum period of validity of a prescription is increased from 6 months to 9 months as of the date specified on the prescription.

Some temporary changes to the way in which prescriptions can be repeated are also being introduced to enable pharmacists to ensure the continuity of care of patients without necessarily requiring a new prescription.

Minister Harris commented:

“We are asking people to stay home. We know many people will still require access to important medicines and that is why we are introducing these measures. However, I also want to remind patients and the general public not to seek supplies of medicines over and above their normal requirements. Doing so will hamper the supply of medicines for others.
“The changes we will make today will relieve the pressure on GPs and pharmacists. Crucially, it will reduce the need for people to visit their GP or pharmacy during this pandemic.
“I want to thank our healthcare staff, my department and the HSE for their work on this matter. This is a significant step and will help us in our efforts to slow the spread of this virus.”
This is welcomed news from the Minister as it makes life easier for all concerned including patients. Thank you to all who made this initiative happen.
