FREE Patient Compliance Packs (Monitored Dosage Systems)
We offer FREE patient compliance packs to any patient that may have issues in taking their medication. This can be due to a number of reasons including:
- patients who may struggle to organise their medicines and finds it difficult to remember to take them at the correct time

FREE Disposal of Unwanted Medicines
The best way to return any unwanted or out of date medicines is to your local pharmacy. We can dispose of both prescribed and over the counter medicines safely. Please try and return any unwanted or out of date medicines in their original packaging if possible, and always tell us if there are any controlled medication within your returns. We do not accept the returns of any sharps. i.e needles.
FREE Blood Pressure Testing
High blood pressure can lead to strokes and cardio-vascular problems. We offer a FREE blood pressure check. Our trained staff can take your blood pressure and discuss the results with you, making suggestions to manage your high blood pressure and referring you to a GP if necessary.
New Medicine Service
When you are prescribed a medicine to treat certain long term conditions, our pharmacist will support you to take the medicine properly so it works to its best effect. Our pharmacist will talk to you approximately one to two weeks after you first receive the medicine normally by telephone (but you can come into the pharmacy if that is easier) and then again in another two weeks to see how you are getting on and if you are experiencing any issues that we can help you with.
Emergency Hormonal Contraception
Emergency Hormonal Contraception is commonly called the ‘morning after pill’. If you have unprotected sex, or if you have forgotten to take your usual contraception or the condom splits, our pharmacist will be able to offer confidential advice and can sell you the morning after pill as long as you are within 72 hours of having unprotected sex and are suitable to take it.
For women aged 24 and under this service maybe provided free on the NHS. This is a strictly private and confidential service carried out by our accredited pharmacist.
Our pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals and can supply certain medicines for a limited number of common minor ailments on the NHS without you having to make an appointment to see your GP. This is a free NHS service that doesn’t require you making an appointment.
