Dispensing

We dispense NHS prescriptions and will 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 prescriptions promptly.

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.

Please remember: keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children. Our pharmacist can advise you on safe storage of medicines.

NHS Health Advice and Self-care

The pharmacist and our trained assistants are available for advice on all medicines and minor ailments, in private if required. 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 2018 and the NHS code of practice on confidentiality. If you want to discuss the records we keep, please ask to speak to the pharmacist.

NHS New Medicine Service

When you are prescribed a medicine to treat a long-term condition for the first time, the pharmacist will support you to use the medicine safely and to best effect.

The pharmacist will talk to you approximately two weeks after you first receive the medicine to see how you are getting on with it and to discuss any problems you may have. A second follow-up will be a month after you first receive the medicine. The service is only available to people using certain medicines; our pharmacist will give you details and offer this free NHS service, if this is available to you.

NHS Unwanted Medicines service

Please return all unwanted medicines to the pharmacy where we will dispose of them safely.

Want a quiet word?

We have a consultation area available if you’d like to discuss something in private.
