What is an Accredited Advice Centre
Accredited Pharmacy Advice Centres have been through the same training as the clinics and have therefore been able to access a wider range of knowledge and treatment options. They are able to provide a great depth and range of advice to patient s than non accredited pharmacies and are aware of their local Treatment centre and will refer as appropriate.
A number of the Treatment centres will liaise with their local Advice centres and offer consultations in pharmacy consulting rooms to further boost patient choices and options.
