East Antrim MLA Roy Beggs visited Boots community pharmacy in Carrick’s Market Place as part of the ‘caring for our community’ campaign.
Mr Beggs learnt more about the community pharmacy’s education programmes and wider services.
The Ulster Unionist representative said: “While visiting the store, I heard of the good work that the local pharmacist Rory O’Neill does within the community as part of education programmes, in particular the work that he has done with the allotment holders at Eden.
“I also met with Marie Smith, pharmacy manager NI for Boots, who advised of the services that Boots can deliver, including minor ailments, smoking cessation, medicine use reviews and substance dependency services, which could alleviate strain and pressure from our GPs and hospitals.”
