Numark pharmacy’s flu service goes viral

Anna Pharmacy in Sutton has administered over 500 flu vaccinations in just two months – a record for the family-run store.

The Numark member took part in the flu vaccinations pilot scheme in 2013 and has seen the service go from strength to strength ever since. Pharmacist and manager Jaymil Patel said: “This is far and above our best year so far; I put it down to our collaborative approach which includes a comprehensive marketing strategy, comprising of both online and offline activity including a large digital display in the window and also inside the pharmacy itself.”

Laura Reed, Numark’s head of professional development, commented: “Our flu service has gone really well. In fact, we’re aware of a number of members having reached 500 vaccinations already – they’ve really embraced the service this year and are doing well with it.”
