Dispensing Doctors Practice. 

Dispensing Doctors are often rural community practices and have their own in –house dispensaries. With space often a premium PSS has a great pedigree in re-designing and equipping the dispensary with the latest spac- saving storage equipment and efficient work flow.

Bourne Gallety practice in Lincolnshire appointed PSS in 2015 to re design the current dispensary and to create an area that could be future proofed for 2020.   From site meeting and design input we created a more efficient and space effective dispensary, our design team created 3D design models to aid in the understanding of our plans and the effectiveness of the PSS storage system and approach.

Room layouts aid the staff in understanding the PSS approach to ergonomic design and layout.

 Working closely with the practice manager and the dispensary lead we installed our modular storage solution with FIFO pull out storage drawers and under counter storage shelving. The work tops were supplied in Kydex antibacterial finished and our plan offered more space than the previous design. The finished dispensary was fitted to a pre prepared room over 2 days and included the supply of sinks, CD cabinet and new electrical / data connections.

From our original 2015 refit we returned to in 2019 to meet the new demands of the Practice and build a bigger dispensary.  The modular nature of the PSS storage system allowed for all the original fittings to be used in the new larger dispensary. This costs saving was a key factor in the new build.

Ian Roberson, Practice manager said, “ We have been delighted with PSS and their approach to helping with the design and fitting has made our space the most efficient for the area available in 2015.  Being able to expand the dispensary as we had originally planned for 2019 was a key benefit in choosing PSS.”
