Multilingual Staff - Brockwood Pharmacy, Dorking

How language barriers affect the healthcare sector:

 

With the UK being a multi-cultural society, languages and dialects aren’t always the same. This can make communication very difficult. Language barriers can often be problematic when attempting to determine diagnosis and negotiating effective treatments between a patient and a healthcare practitioner.

 

What can multilingual staff offer the local community?

 

Some of our staff can communicate in two or more languages. This is very important for building a relationship between the patient and pharmacy and aids decision making when it comes to diagnosis and choice of treatment.

All the staff at Brockwood, are very kind, understanding and very helpful. My mother - In law has a monthly prescription, which is already for me to collect every month without any problems at all. When she was started on a new drug, the staff told me when she was to be gaven these tablets, and explained any possible effects to look out for. Would recommend Brockwood Pharmacy/ and practice to friends. ?% Thank you to all the staff.

What a friendly, helpful and professional service! There was a recent shortage of a critical medication for me and my prescription was unable to be fulfilled, however, they went out of their way and phoned all the the other pharmacies in Dorking to see if the item could be sourced. Alas, no luck (Brexit?) but they were able to suggest an alternative and advise on the course of action to enable me to source it. To my great relief the alternative medication was supplied the next day. I am eternally grateful. Thanks:-)
