You can always discuss your specific medical concerns with our pharmacist, as well as any general healthcare or lifestyle factors.

Free repeat prescription collection and delivery service

We will be pleased to collect repeat prescriptions on your behalf from local doctor’s surgeries. If you are unable to get to the pharmacy, we will do our best to deliver your medication to you as soon as possible.

Medication reviews

We can help you to understand your medicines, ensure they are working well for you, as well as how to take them correctly. The service is FREE to you, so ask the pharmacy staff or pharmacist today for further details about the review of your medicines.

Unwanted medicine

Keeping medicines that are no longer needed can have harmful consequences. It is therefore vital that they are disposed of correctly to prevent harm to people and the environment. Therefore, return all unwanted medicines to the pharmacy where they can be safely destroyed.

Patient medication records

We maintain a computerised personal medication record on your behalf which enables us to have a detailed history of your prescriptions. This means that we can swiftly and efficiently deal with any queries you have. This information is, naturally, confidential and is never passed on to other persons.

Healthy lifestyle advice

Our pharmacy has an extensive selection of leaflets on health promotion and lifestyle issues such as diet, obesity, smoking, exercise, alcohol, preventing heart disease, sun and health, and sexual health.  Please speak to a member of our team for advice on how you can achieve a healthier lifestyle.
