As from 20th April 2015- Medication Reviews.
To ensure safe and effective use of your medication we will no longer be able to supply your repeat medication if your medication review is overdue.
Your review date is listed on your repeat slip for your convenience.
To book a review, please arrange a telephone appointment with our Pharmacist Mike Field or a member of our nursing team, by contacting reception.
If you have any concerns, please speak to a member of our dispensary team.
