  • Make sure it includes all the information we need about the customer and their medicines
  • Make sure that the customer receives the maximum funding entitled to
  • Make sure that the medicine, the dose and the instructions are right for the customer
  • Make sure that the medicine will not react with anything else the customer is taking
  • Check for possible side effects that the customer should be warned of
  • Ring the customer’s doctor if we have any concerns
  • Update and maintain individual medicines record

If we do not have your medicine in stock, we will source it locally if possible. Otherwise we will have it ready for you the next day.

Please note: We don’t charge you to have have prescriptions faxed through from your doctor to either of our pharmacies (doctors charges may apply however – please check with your surgery)
