Learn Why Pharmacies are Rebranding to Health Clinics!

As of the end of February, Ontario pharmacists have completed an impressive 86,000 assessments and issued about 70,000 prescriptions for minor ailments. While this is an encouraging development, not nearly enough of these assessments are coming from independent community pharmacies. 

The pandemic has reinforced the importance of local pharmacies to our communities, with Canadians showing a strong preference for receiving care from their local pharmacy. The top two services 80% of Canadians would like to remain include online booking and health services in the local pharmacy, and 66% of Canadians want to see more services at their local pharmacy.* 



Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from our experts and discover how you can leverage minor ailments to grow your pharmacy practice and serve your broader community. While patients love to support independent businesses, they prioritize convenience and quality-of-service the most. Now is the time to show patients that you are their trusted healthcare destination while also providing the convenience and timely access they need.

In this webinar, our experts will provide valuable insights into the latest trend of leveraging minor ailments to rebrand as Pharmacy Health Clinics and helping you to expand your service offerings and reach patients in your community without access to a doctor.
