Clinical skills training provider, ECG Training, and pharmacy clinical service package provider, Pharmadoctor, have launched a new wellness clinic, Makewell.
Makewell’s team of pharmacists and nurses will provide patients with access to over 150 treatments across more than 60 clinical services including aesthetics, allergy treatment, Covid-19 testing, health check-up, sexual health, skincare and vaccinations, among others.
In addition to serving as a standalone wellness clinic, Makewell has also been set up to provide pharmacists with a safe and practical learning environment where they can shadow the Makewell team to gain hands-on experience delivering a wide range of clinical services.
Commenting on the new clinic, ECG and Makewell CEO Jane Lambert said: “For pharmacists considering expanding the range of clinical services they provide, Makewell gives them a unique opportunity to gain the practical skills, confidence and experience they need to run successful services in their own pharmacy.
“Makewell’s clinical team is made up of ECG’s experienced pharmacist and nurse trainers who already train over 14,000 pharmacists each year in a classroom environment. Makewell enables our team to take pharmacist training to an enhanced level within a real clinic setting.”
Makewell is supported by Pharmadoctor’s full range of clinical packages, including their consultation e-tools which have enabled Makewell to scaleup the number of services offered to patients in record time.
In addition to clinical support, Pharmadoctor is providing Makewell with brand development and marketing support to help them promote their services to the patients.
Graham Thoms, Pharmadoctor CEO, said: “Our plan is to share our experience of successfully marketing the Makewell services with the pharmacies Pharmadoctor supports. We want to walk-the-walk when showing pharmacists best practice.”
Makewell will open up learning opportunities to pharmacies over the coming weeks and months, the company has said.
