As your local community pharmacy, we can offer a wide range of services for you and your family. This leaflet provides information about our services.

NHS services we provide:

Dispensing prescriptions  We dispense NHS prescriptions (paper and electronic) and will give advice on how to get the most benefit from your medicines. We keep a comprehensive stock of medicines and use an efficient wholesaler service to enable us to dispense all prescriptions promptly. We can also dispense NHS repeat dispensing prescriptions. Ask us for more information about this service.

Our staff can also advise you on safe storage of medicines.

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

Health advice and self-care  Our pharmacist and trained assistants are available to provide 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 meet Healthy Living Pharmacy standards and have a dedicated health promotion zone located within our store where you can get information on local public health issues. You can also talk to our health champion who can give you advice on how to improve your health and wellbeing. We can also direct you to other sources of advice and assistance if we cannot help you ourselves.

Discharge Medicines Service – In hospital, the medicines you take may be changed, or new medicines prescribed. With your consent, we may be informed of these changes so that we can provide advice and support to you with the medicines you will be taking after your visit to hospital. We can also liaise with the hospital and your doctor, if this is necessary. Ask us for more information about this service.

New Medicine Service  When you are prescribed a medicine to treat one a range of long-term conditions for the first time, the pharmacist will support you to use the medicine safely and to best effect. Our pharmacist will talk to you about one to 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. Our pharmacist will give you details and offer this free NHS service, if this is available to you.

Flu Vaccination Service  Each year we provide an NHS flu vaccination service to people aged 18 years and older who are eligible to receive a free vaccination. Ask us for more information about eligibility for this service.

NHS Blood Pressure checks service – High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is a condition which can be controlled to reduce your risk of a heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular disease. We are offering free NHS blood pressure checks to people aged 40 and over with no appointment necessary. This involves a consultation with our pharmacist. Following this, you may be invited to take home a monitor that measures your blood pressure as you go about your daily life. Depending on your readings, you may be referred to your GP. Ask us for more information about eligibility for this service.

Patient records  We keep records of all your prescriptions dispensed by us, as well as records of other services we provide to you. Our pharmacy professionals also consult records to support your care, such as NHS summary care records or local shared care records. Our use of records 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 on confidentiality. If you want to discuss the records we keep, please speak to a member of staff.

Additional Services due to COVID-19 – We may provide additional NHS services as part of the NHS response to COVID-19. Please ask us for further information.
