Pharmacist Phones Elderly Patients To Check In On Them

Laura, aka the Fabulous Pharmacist is using her Instagram platform to spread awareness about the elderly and vulnerable in our society. In an Instagram post Laura spoke about how she has been using some of her working hours to phone elderly and vulnerable patients.

"they are so happy to hear from me, to have a little chat. Some people are so terribly lonely and feel completely cut off from the outside world. These are people who who would normally have popped in to the pharmacy for a little chat, but now they don't even have that outlet"

Laura is urging people to do the same. A simple phonecall or note through the door could really make a person's day. Well done Laura!
