NHS Services

We can offer a wide range of services and facilities for you and your family.

Dispensing – We dispense NHS and Private prescriptions and will give advice on how to get the most benefit from your medicines.

Repeat Dispensing – We can dispense NHS repeat dispensing prescriptions issued by your doctor. Ask us for more information about this service.

Medicine containers – All medicines are dispensed in child resistant containers unless you ask us not to. Our pharmacist can advise you on safe storage of medicines.

NHS Unwanted Medicines service – Unwanted medicines can be disposed of safely.

NHS Health Advice and Self-care – The pharmacist is available for advice on all medicines and minor ailments. We can also give you advice on how to live a healthy life, for example, advice on how to stop smoking or healthy diets. We can direct you to other sources of advice and assistance if we cannot help you ourselves.

Patient Medication Records – Our computer allows us to keep records of all your prescriptions dispensed by us. This helps us check for possible problems, such as reactions between medicines and will help us deal with any queries you may have.

We comply with the Data Protection Act and the NHS code of practice on confidentiality. If you want to discuss the records we keep, please ask to speak to the pharmacist.

Other Services we provide:

Repeat Prescription Collection Service - We offer a repeat prescription collection service from selected local GP practices. Please ask for details.

Emergency supplies – If you need one of your regular medicines in an emergency when you are unable to contact your doctor, we may be able to help. We must stress that this can only be done in genuine emergencies and it may incur a charge.

If you would like any more information about any of the services mentioned, please call or email us for details.
