New Medicine Service (NMS)
If you are prescribed a medicine to treat a long-term condition for the first time, you may be able to get extra help and advice about your medicine from your local pharmacist through a new free scheme called the New Medicine Service (NMS).
Medicine Use Review (MUR)
A Medicines Use Review is a free NHS service offered by pharmacies in the UK. The review involves an appointment with your local pharmacist, in a private consultation room. It is an opportunity for you to discuss your medicines with a pharmacist, to understand how your medicines should be used and why they have been prescribed, as well as solving any problems you may have with them.
We dispense both NHS & private prescriptions and will give advice on how to get the most benefit from your medicines.
Our private prescription service is priced competitively and we offer a price match.
We understand that getting your prescription can often be a time consuming process that doesn’t always suit your needs.
So let us do the running about! We can collect your prescription from your surgery on your behalf and prepare it, in advance, so that your medicines are ready to collect at your convenience. That means only one visit to the pharmacy to collect your medicines. We can also hold your repeat slip in the pharmacy and order your prescription at your request.
If you are unable to collect your medicines from the pharmacy, we can deliver them to you.
For more information or to sign up to this service please speak to a member of our team or go to our Prescriptions page.
