In Store Services
The Rowlands inhaler service is designed to provide support to our patients with their inhaler medicines to improve self-monitoring and encourage long-term self-management of their condition.
Your Rowlands Pharmacy team can offer you a support service to ensure that you are getting the most from your inhaler. We will give you the help and guidance needed to ensure that you are using your inhaler correctly and confidently. Good inhaler technique can really make a difference to how well you manage your asthma. It can also cut your risk of an asthma attack.
You will be asked to complete a short simple questionnaire which will give us an understanding on how well controlled your asthma or COPD is. Depending on the score you may be invited for a private consultation with our trained pharmacy staff who will be able to help and support you to get the most benefit out of your inhaler. You will also be given the opportunity to speak with our pharmacist should you have any concerns with your medication.
The Inhaler Recycling Service is the first UK wide recycling recovery scheme for inhalers.
Rowlands pharmacy patients have recycled over 84,000 inhalers since the launch of the service. This is the equivalent saving of 104 car trips around the world in a 1.4TSI VW golf!
63% of people claim to put their old inhalers in their domestic waste bin1.
73 million respiratory inhalers are used in the UK every year2.
The Inhaler and Inhaler Recycling Services are now available at your local Rowlands pharmacy.
