EMERGENCY SUPPLIES

We may be able to help if you need a prescription medicine in an emergency when it is impossible to get your doctor. We can only do this in genuine emergencies. And because it cannot be done under the NHS, we have to charge.

MEDICINE CONTAINERS

We put all tablets and capsules in “child resistant containers” unless you ask us not to. This does not mean that they are “child proof” – nothing is!! So KEEP ALL MEDICINES OUT OF CHILDREN’S SIGHT AND REACH.

To help elderly or confused people take their medicines correctly, we can recommend special containers marked with daily or weekly doses. Further, where such a patient is unable to visit the pharmacy, we may be able to arrange for a member of staff to call at home.
