Competition to name Robotic Dispenser in pharmacy
McNallys Late Night Pharmacy recently ran a competition with the local schools. The competition was to colour in and name the new Robotic Dispenser situated within the Pharmacy. The lucky winner was Morgan Smyth from primary 2 class in St Malachys Primary School. Morgan named the Robot “Pharmobot” which is most appropriate for the device. For her wonderful efforts Morgan won herself a £50 Gift Voucher from Easons Stores and the school also won a £100 Gift Voucher from Easons Stores. McNally’s Late Night Pharmacy is the only pharmacy within Newry to have this Innovative and exciting machine. The paper prescription is scanned into the computer and the dispensing label is then printed and within 1 second the automated dispensing robot finds the listed medicines according to the dosage and it then dispenses the medicines to one of the four respective counters from where the order was sent within 5 to 10 seconds. The Robot knows how to arrange and re-arrange medicines according to the frequency of demand and checks the strength and quantity of the medication against the prescription. This significantly reduces the time it takes to dispense the order. McNallys Late Night Pharmacy has experienced huge improvements with the Robotic Dispensing machine such as increased stock rotation, reduction in stock wastage and shortened dispensary times. There is a large television screen situated in the window of the pharmacy allowing customers to witness the robot in action. Morgan also got the opportunity to have her picture and name mounted onto the Robotic Dispenser in the recent “Naming Ceremony”. McNallys Late Night Pharmacy would like to thank all the schools and pupils who took part in the competition and also invite customers and patients to come and see Pharmobot in action on the big screen.
