Pharmacy closed in the City of San Marino, the junta regrets
“With the end of the tourist season, the problem related to the closure of the pharmacy reappears for the Castello di Città”.
He makes it known Tomaso Rossini, captain of the Castle of the City of San Marino, explaining in a note that, “unfortunately, the lack of attendance by the citizens and the frequentation of recipes, led the ISS management to decide to restore theone shift, from 9 to 14.30, from Monday to Saturday excluding holidays“, in City pharmacy.
The council of Castello of the City of San Marino “regrets this decision because it firmly believes that the historic center, Unesco heritage and capital of the Republic, use this service, if not H24, at least full time and also on Sundays and holidays, given its tourist vocation“.
“It has been a long time since the council questioned itself and looked for solutions to facilitate housing in the historic center and this decision will be a new deterrent and further inconvenience for the already residents – underlines captain Rossini -. In our opinion, seeing the closed pharmacy gives a sense of an abandoned city and not favorably transmitted repopulation of the historic center, which is necessary to keep our intangible heritage and a city alive that can always attract a greater number of visitors “.
“To remedy some of these problems – reads the press release -, the Pharmaceutical Center has long proposed an innovative solution, which due to the pandemic has not yet been realized: equip the pharmacy with a vending machine for over-the-counter drugs and everyday items. The dispenser will be equipped with a screen that puts the user in electronic contact with a pharmacist present H24, answering from the hospital pharmacy which is always open. This contact will make it possible to sell even the most common over-the-counter drugs through the automatism, and it can also be used for the withdrawal of prescriptions. So the solution will see the pharmacy open for a morning shift and the dispenser running 24 hours a day. The junta welcomes this further administration, but believes that we should stay a solution to the final and no longer postponable goal of keeping the pharmacy open on an ongoing basis“.
Finally, Captain Rossini informs Captain Rossini that he has already advanced “various proposals to facilitate the use of the service not only for residents in the historic center and tourists, but also to the citizens of the Castle, how to reserve some short-term parking spaces dedicated to users of the pharmacy “, and they say”open and available for discussion with institutions to arrive at an optimal solution together in full compliance with the needs of all parties involved “.
