Services

As your local community pharmacy we can offer a wide range of services and facilities for you and your family.

Dispensing Prescriptions

We dispense NHS and private prescriptions and advise on how best to take your medicines. We will record prescriptions we dispense on our computerised Patient Medication Record to enable us to check suitability of your medication and check for interactions.

Repeat Dispensing

If your doctor agrees you will be able to collect repeat prescriptions from us without having to worry about ordering the prescription at your surgery.

Unwanted Medicines

Can be returned to the Pharmacy where we will safely dispose of them.

Health Advice

A pharmacist is available to advise you in confidence on medicines, healthy lifestyles, minor illnesses and accessing other local health care providers. We stock a wide range of medicines for over the counter purchase to help with self-care.

Surgical Appliances

We supply surgical stockings, trusses, stoma and incontinence appliances and can provide help and advice.

Residential & Nursing Homes

We can provide a full pharmaceutical service to homes including monitored dosage systems.

Medicines Use Review

We offer a FREE annual review of your medication, helping you to understand more about your medicines, and how best to take them.

Discharge Medicines Reviews

If you have recently been discharged from hospital you can make an appointment with our pharmacist to check that any changes made to your medicines in hospital continue when you come home. Our pharmacist can discuss any concerns you may have about your medicines and will make a follow up appointment with you a month later to check that any problems identified have been dealt with.

If you are unable to make it to the pharmacy we can provide this service over the telephone.
