We dispense both NHS and Private Prescriptions from our branches.
We always keep a record of what we supply, so we can tell whether it is safe for you to take the newly prescribed medicine, together with any other medication you may be taking. The labels on your medicine will alert you to any precautions you should take, such as avoiding alcohol or not driving.
You can be confident that our counter staff are properly trained through accredited courses, ensuring they can provide advice on common ailments, treatments and medicines. You may be asked some simple questions and our staff may refer you to the pharmacist before you buy anything.
This is to ensure that you get the most suitable advice or product. We have a wide range of well known products available, many of which you can only buy from a pharmacy. If you wish you can talk in confidence to the pharmacist about common ailments and their treatment.
Pharmacies are also useful places to go for advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You are always welcome to come in and help yourself to the display of healthcare leaflets covering many of the topics we frequently get asked about. Look out for the new ones each month.

Confidential Help & Advice
We have a private area where you can talk about your medicines or general healthcare.
Please ask to speak to the pharmacist on duty. Our care for you goes beyond selling you medicines.
Information about Prescription Medicines
Many of the medicines we dispense for you are supplied in the manufacturer’s original pack complete with a leaflet containing medicine which is required by law.
Please speak to the pharmacist if there is anything in the leaflet which you are unsure about or if you want to know anything else.
We may be able to help you if you need a prescription medicine in a genuine emergency when it is impossible to get to your doctor. And because it cannot be done under the NHS, we have to charge.
