Background

Will Chemists in Inverurie has been established in the town now for over 30 years, during which time the company has provided an acknowledged, first rate pharmaceutical service widely appreciated by the general public, local business and surrounding Health Centres.

Since September 2006, as an adjunct to providing Private and NHS influenza vaccinations, and following on from a successful pilot project for NHS Grampian, a full Travel Clinic has been provided which has been benefiting the public and business where travel vaccinations can be prescribed and administered by our trained pharmacists. Anti-malaria medication is also available without the need for a GP prescription. This has been particularly beneficial where quick access to a travel service is necessary or where the usual GP appointment system has been difficult to access. This also avoids private consultation fees levied by some clinics.

Training

We currently have five pharmacists who can prescribe and administer travel vaccinations and anti-marlaria medication. In addition, the pharmacists have undergone the course in travel health, Travel-Health Related Education and Care (TREC). Supported and approved by Health Protection Scotland and NHS Grampian, a course popular with General Practitioners and Nurses involved in the provision of travel health services. Having completed the course, the pharmacists now have access to travax.nhs.uk website which continually updates worldwide travel requirements as advised by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The pharmacists also update on an annual basis their training for anaphylaxis treatment.

In 2015 we trained and registered as a Yellow Fever Centre and can provide the necessary advice, vaccine and internationally recognised Yellow Fever Certificate.
