Prescriptions

  • Prescription Collection & Delivery Service

    We can arrange to have your prescription collected for you from your doctor’s surgery and have it dispensed and ready for you to collect from the pharmacy. This will save you having to make a separate journey to the surgery and prevent you having to wait in the pharmacy for your prescription to be dispensed. Also, if any of your medication has to be ordered for your prescription we will ensure that everything is ready for you when you call in. Please let any member of staff know that you would like your prescription collecting and which surgery you belong to. You will have to fill out a consent form for us to initiate this service for you. Remember that you can also order your prescriptions, and set up a repeat service online – visit our Click & Collect Prescription Service for details.

    N.B. GP practice policies may vary and consent from the doctor must also be given for this service to be initiated.

    Prescription Delivery Service

    This service is currently only available to those genuinely ill, housebound or to Care Homes. We will deliver your medication (usually in the evening time between 7pm – 8pm) the same day* provided you have requested your prescription before noon.

    Same day* – Please note that a valid prescription must be on file in the pharmacy. Should you need a new prescription from your doctor your delivery request may take a few days longer.

  • Personalised Medication Guide

    At Pharmhealth Pharmacy, we can offer you a personalised guide outlining the details of your medication and how they are used. This sheet can be of great value if you have recently been diagnosed with an illness, and have gone from having never taken any medication to having to take several. It is also of value to those who are very capable of taking their medication correctly, but perhaps still may have some questions of their particular prescription.

      The Personalised Medication Guide will contain:
    • Your personal details
    • Your GP and pharmacist details
    • A listing of your current medication relevant to the date the guide is issued
    • What each medicine is used to treat
    • When each medication should be taken
    • Any other relevant details

    If you wish to avail of this service, simply contact us by email or telephone, or request one during your next visit to the pharmacy. If you feel that this guide still causes some degree of confusion please let us know. We have several other options available which we can discuss with you in our consultation room at your convenience.
