The machine, a Pharmaself 24, will enable pharmacy staff to scan bar-codes on bagged prescriptions before loading them into one side of the machine

Plans filed with Blackpool Council, which were passed, show a cash machine-style hole-in-the-wall, which will allow patients to enter a code and get their medication even when the pharmacy is shut.

The machine, a Pharmaself 24, will enable pharmacy staff to scan bar-codes on bagged prescriptions before loading them into one side of the machine.

Patients will then be able to collect and pay for them using a six digit number sent by email or text and a built-in card machine.
