A new health clinic opened in Bedford this Saturday providing NHS and privately funded health services to the whole community. Smarta Healthcare will use virtual reality technology to help individuals and families cope with the challenges of Dementia and leading health diagnostic equipment for new health check services.
The team based at the Priory Business Park in Bedford, already hand deliver NHS and private prescriptions to people’s homes, care homes and hospitals across Bedfordshire. Their aim is to make healthcare accessible to the whole community, especially the elderly and vulnerable that become isolated in their own homes. Smarta Healthcare liaise directly with GPs, health professionals and hospitals to get the right medicines to people as quickly as possible, and registered customers benefit from a 24-hour emergency prescription and advice service. Pharmacy Director, Baljit Kaur said: “Our home and healthcare delivery service mean we get to talk to our customers face-to-face and we saw a real need to make more services accessible to them. Our new Clinic will cater for individuals, communities and care homes. We will continue to take services to people’s homes that most need it.”
The Clinic was officially opened by Deputy Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Professor Gurch Randhawa, who said “This is a really good example of how Bedfordshire citizens are making a huge impact. I’m amazed and think the technology that is available here is leading edge and I’ve not seen any other clinic that offers this range of services, set to benefit the whole community.”
The new services, based at 5 Stephenson Court, Fraser Road, Priory Business Park, include flu and travel vaccinations, VR, weight management and care-based physiotherapy services.
