We are known as an online pharmacy or distance selling pharmacy. We operate like a normal pharmacy however all of our services are provided in a non face to face manner. We mainly provide these services via telephone or email.
We have a pharmacist on duty, throughout normal working hours, who is available to advise and provide the following services.
NHS services we provide:
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 a fast and 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.
All medicines are dispensed in child resistant containers unless you ask us not to. Please remember: keep all medicines out of the sight and reach of children. Our staff can advise you on safe storage of 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 can direct you to other sources of advice and assistance if we cannot help you ourselves.
We keep records of all your prescriptions dispensed by us as well as records of other services we provide to you. 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 and the NHS code on confidentiality. If you want to discuss the records we keep, please speak to a member of staff.
