NHS Services

Our friendly Pharmacy Team of Pharmacists, Dispensers and our Healthy Living Advisors are all available for advice on medicines, minor ailments and long term conditions.  With consultation and treatment room facilities you can be sure that you can speak to our Pharmacist and Pharmacy Team in privacy and with confidence.  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 also refer you to more specialist services if needed.

Prescription Dispensing

We dispense NHS and private prescriptions and give advice on how to get the most benefit from your medicines. We keep a comprehensive stock of medicines and use a fast and an efficient wholesaler service to enable us to fill all your prescriptions promptly.

Repeat Dispensing

We can dispense NHS repeat dispensing prescriptions issued by your doctor. Your GP can issue you with a three, six or twelve month batch of prescriptions which you can leave with us at the pharmacy, instead of ordering your prescriptions each month. This service is ideally suited to patients on stable medication. Please speak to you GP or Pharmacist about eligibility for this service.

Medicines Use Review

You can make an appointment with our Pharmacist to discuss how you are getting on with your regular medicines. It will allow you to learn more about your medicines and ask any questions you may have, and if you are having difficulties taking your medicines our Pharmacist may be able to assist. Please ask in store for more details on this service.
