Our Hours

These are the hours that our door is open to take care of your needs, whether you need to pick up a prescription or need to purchase an item from the Pharmacy.  It is really important that when you come to see us that you continue to maintain your social distancing and if there is a queue, that you wait for your turn whilst still being two metres away from the person in front of you and the person at the back of you.

Please be aware that it can sometimes take 24 hours for a prescription to get to us from the Doctor after you have seen/spoken to them.  It can then take another 24 hours for us to fill the prescription.  Please note that ACUTE prescriptions eg: for antibiotics are given priority and we will attend to these in faster timeframes.


Our telephones may become overloaded on many occasions as people take the opportunity to communicate with us by phone instead of coming in.  We apologise in advance if you find it hard to get hold of us.  Keep trying.  Please note that we are only able to answer the telephone during our opening hours.
