Although there has been a lot of attention on front-line workers the last several months, there’s still a part of the system ensuring essential medicines get to patients in need that’s invisible to most people: the pharmaceutical supply chain.
Across Alliance Healthcare, delivery drivers haven’t slowed down. It’s been quite the opposite, as they went into overdrive to get medical, pharmaceutical, surgical and healthcare products to hospitals, pharmacies and health centers safely and on time.
John Carpenter, delivery driver for Alliance Healthcare UK, is one of these “unsung heroes.”
“I love my job, and I’m honored to be able to deliver health products and medicines for people who really need them in this current situation,” he says. “We feel like every one of us at Alliance Healthcare is a vital cog in a large wheel, from management to the colleagues who are sanitizing everything in sight. I think we’ll look back on this moment proudly.”
