Clever robot helps out in Widnes late-night pharmacy
A state-of-the-art computer is helping staff dispense prescriptions in Peel House Lane, Widnes, next to Fairfield High School.
While the staff are printing the labels for the bottles, the robot can choose and take the items off the shelves for them, just like a vending machine does.
The pharmacy has invited customers to pick a name for the robot! You can email your entry to the Runcorn & Widnes World at email@example.com
