Pharmacies play a critical role in helping people understand their health issues and the steps they can take to improve their health. This Crystal Clear Mark recognises pharmacies that deliver a literacy friendly service. This means the service takes account of and supports the literacy and numeracy needs of its customers and regularly evaluates and improves its health literacy practices.
The mark has been developed by the Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU), Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD) and NALA and is supported by Healthy Ireland. The mark is awarded for three years and it is free to apply.
To date we have awarded the quality mark to 102 pharmacies.
