It's not just a matter of deciphering your doctor's handwriting and dishing out your medicine! Our pharmacists always take the time to explain what is prescribed so you get the best results from the medicine. We will give you advice on possible side effects and will answer any questions you have. We even have a confidential clinic where we can discuss your personal situation in private. And to prove we really do care about your health, if you come to us for a prescription and we think a different medicine will work better, we'll call your doctor on your behalf and discuss it with them, to guarantee you always get what's best for you.
Our free repeat reminder service is very popular and just to make things a little easier for you, if you can't pick up your prescription, we are more than happy to deliver it right to your door - completely free of charge!
We've all forgotten to take our medicine at some time in the past! Make it as easy as possible by having your medicine packaged into single doses so you always take the right amount of medicine at the right time. Blister packaging is perfect if you are very busy or if you are caring for an elderly relative.
We do over 200 packs a week for people who need this service! If you'd like to learn more, pop in and see us.
Sometimes a prescribed medicine is only half of what you need.

Our extensive range of over the counter medicines can help you whatever your ailment! Our pharmacists will be on hand to give you professional advice to make sure you get exactly what you need.
